[QUOTE]DaveCarr and Bim9: We certainly don't need any more threads on Kessel but when I read something stupid, you have to call it out. Kessel had 36 goals last year (only 11 player had more). He has 21 and on pace for 38 this year

First off, this isn't a new thread about Kessel, it's the Toronto Record Tracker, and that's what I posted about.
Second, as my posts that started this flareup pointed out, Yes, Kessel scored in that game, but he also gave up a terrible giveaway and cost his team a goal. The team lost by 1. If he was a halfway decent two-way player, and didn't give up the puck, they would have gotten at least one point instead of none.
So yes, the B's miss his goals. But what's the point of getting a goal from him if he's going to help give one up?
You all throw out there how he is getting all these goals and assists, and how great he is, but has ANYONE mentioned that he's -2 for the year?
So for all the goals he gets, he is on the ice when the other teams score MORE goals. Take him out of the equation, and Toronto has +2 goal differential. Considering how many one goal games they've been in this year, that has to factor in.
I don't miss him.
