I said and maintained that i would be very surprised to see kessel go and some here came with the utmost convcition saying he's gone and will not sign in toronto and he's off to Minn- dumbies guy is from madison plays for the gophers and he's a shoe in to sign with the Wild-
get outta here, get lost!
I was one of the first to come up with the idea that there was a chance that he could be thinking of not re-signing with Toronto, because of him stating that he would not negotiate a contract, once the season started.
I also mentioned that Minny would be my guess, as to where he might end up, because the Wild had just signed Suter & Parise to big money, so they seemed to covet players that were born in that area. They would also have the needed cap space with the departure of Heatley, who just happens to play the same position as Kessel.
I would not call that "utmost conviction" or a "shoe-in". I was simply offering my opinion. That's what we do here. I am wrong much more often than I am right, but the odd time that I actually guess right about something (I'm sure it's happened, I just can't think of one, right now), I would not come on here, bragging about it and calling other people, "dumbies".
That is something children do.
