@LyGuy I'm probably the only one that feels this way, but man, this is really inappropriate.  Not only do I find it personally offensive that hockey talk would stoop to this, but when I load up MLHS at work and a big NSFW picture pops up, it puts me in a very awkward position if anyone walks by.

@In it to Winnik It's not just being slow, but how obvious it was he was going to be stripped of the puck, and he just let it happen.

@Yaknowwhat Apparently we have different ideas on the interpretation of 'untouchable'.  If you will trade someone for a draft pick (and I'm not just talking CMD, I'd do any #1 pick), they aren't untouchable.  There are probably about 30 current NHL players most of us would trade him straight up for.  How is that untradeable?


As for realistic, none of this is realistic.

@Yaknowwhat I'd trade him in a heartbeat for the #1 pick this year.  To me, that means he's not untouchable.  


..but yea, he's probably the closest we have.

Sigh..I hate to reference this article, but it appears to be the only Carlyle interview.  Some pretty interesting/potentially damning quotes, including:


“Some of them can do it and some of them are just not capable of grasping it. Some have a difficult time dealing with the pressure that comes at the critical times. If there’s one thing you cannot do with this group, it seems you cannot apply more pressure to them. You’ve got to try to pick them up. It’s always about making them feel good.”


Maybe this is just the way of the new NHL (kids these days...), but it is still unpleasant to hear.

@Burn_the_Loov_Boats @MLHS_Luke


Again - he is 3rd in league scoring over the last number of years by playing off the rush.  I'm more concerned about his back checking after the rush than what he does in the offensive zone.


As a bit of an aside - I'm always perplexed by Kessel's shootout attempts - he almost always tries to deke.  Why does he do that when he knows how well he can score off the rush from the bottom of the faceoff circle?

@Burn_the_Loov_Boats @MLHS_Luke I know what you're saying, but you're asking for a franchise centre/captain, not an elite sniper.  Kessel is what he is, which is top 3 in NHL scoring on a mediocre team.  


Like I said, we will likely trade him to a team that already has that franchise player, and Kessel will become a HOF'er with them.  I don't doubt that in the least.


The only reason I trade Kessel is if we decide we can't bring in top end talent without using him as a trade piece (or to help tank).  The fact that the rest of the team may or may not emulate his playing style to the team's detriment is not Phil's fault.

@Burn_the_Loov_Boats @MLHS_Luke He can't do it all himself.  


All that matters to me is how he plays in the playoffs, which, albeit in a small sample size, has been amazing.
