Kessel to Leafs (Update: 5yrs/27M)

Just got off the phone with a source (and by phone I mean internet, and by source I mean TSN). Kessel to Leafs is pretty much done.

Interesting... Now the Leafs have at least one good forward.


The drama surrounding Phil Kessel has finally come to an end as the Boston Bruins have traded their disgruntled sniper to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for a 1st and a 2nd round pick in 2010, and a 1st round pick in 2011 pending a trade call which is currently underway.

Kessel and the Maple Leafs then quickly agreed to terms on a new five-year, $27 million deal.

Annnnd Eklund is wrong yet again reporting the deal was NOT taking place.
