Phil Kessel Appreciation Thread

    451

    Phil Kessel just completely destroyed the Ottawa Senators with a hat trick and an assist in less than 33 minutes. He’s  hit 30 goals for the sixth consecutive season (if we extend his pace over a full season last year). He’s now tied with Evgeni Malkin for first in points since the 2011-12 season. No NHL player has more points in the past three seasons than Phil Kessel.

    Who, me?

    Review coming a little later. Until now, let’s celebrate our star, our moon, and our sun: The Phil.

    WE ARE NOT WORTHY. WE ARE NOT WORTHY. WE ARE NOT WORTHY.

      WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FUCK YEAH KESSEL BABY

    • Black_Hawk

      BEST IN THE WORLD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • theacs1966

      Did he get 5 pts or 4?  I thought I heard them say they were adding an assist to his totals?

    • Cameron19

      2 more wins and we’ll have cracked 70 points before the break. We cruised through the 50’s, just need to keep it going.

    • Cameron19

      theacs1966  He was just being an idiot. They didn’t add an assist, he just failed to account for it.

    • theacs1966

      Cameron19 theacs1966  Extra assist as in, they would not have won without him?

    • Cameron19

      Despite the glaring error by Gardiner, Carlyle put him out for 21:55, second among Leaf defenders.

      Cameron19  The more TOI, the more mistakes.

    • Black_Hawk

      wendelsway1  Me too 😉

    • Cameron19

      Lovin’ the Phil tonight. I apologize for entertaining the idea of trading you for Malkin, and a couple others.

    • BBirde

      That’s our fat lazy 1 dimensional winger!

    • Alec Brownscombe

      BBirde  Thank you Burkie.

    • Black_Hawk

      Kessel is a beast, Bozak is getting better and better, and JVR is a tank

    • JWaterdrager

      So who picked Kessel last? And more important who  didn’t pick Kessel at all? What a fool

    • Burtonboy

      Very simply an amazing performance from Kessel .

    • Leafbites

      Philly baby, don’t you dare buy a drink tonight…

    • Shift_Disturber1

      NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Alec Brownscombe

      Hit this with an RT, folks. Maybe Burkie will see it. He knows MLHS.

    • Black_Hawk

    • mikeshave

    • Black_Hawk

      https://twitter.com/TSN1050Radio As long as Kessel stays healthy, he can take the Leafs as far as the rest of the team wants to go.

    • turtl

      Eric stalag passed on him at the allstar game. Lidstrom got him by default

      YKNOW I BET IF KESSEL WASNT SUCH A FAT SLOB HE’D ALREADY HAVE 40 GOALS THIS YEAR EH https://twitter.com/dfeschuk? LET’S GO! (THUMBS UP_

    • Black_Hawk

      Shift_Disturber1  lol i thought it was gonna say if he was canadian or from ontario

    • Cameron19

      JWaterdrager  I always felt that the Maple Leafs were picked last, not Kessel.  Had he been putting up the same numbers on any other roster, doubt he sits til’ the end. Not that it matters now.

    • ShotgunCharlie

      Alec Brownscombe ingy56  good Canadian boy right there….err……

    • Shift_Disturber1

      Black_Hawk Shift_Disturber1it’s a stab at Feschuk and one of his hatchet pieces

      Surprised to see Phil Kessel speaking with media Tyler Bozak chirps, “He’s talking! Four points and he talks!”

      Kessel so thrown off when Bozak heckled him in media scrum that he forgot what the question was & just started laughing

      What a little douchebag Ceci is

      https://twitter.com/SWhyno

      https://twitter.com/SWhyno/status/429816934977503233

      Ceci: “I just kind of showed
      my back a bit hoping he’d slow up and ended up face first in the boards
      and then they scored right on the play”

      https://twitter.com/SWhyno/status/429817695761346562

      https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Sens&src=hash‘ Ceci “a little surprised” no call on Kadri. “I guess I could’ve stayed down a little longer.”
