QuotePhil Kessel's philosophy of life is simple. And like most philosophies of life, hard to realize."Live each day to its fullest, don't get wrapped up too much in silly stuff . . . relax, have fun, don't get too uptight," Kessel said, rambling off a host of stay-positive mantras after another training-camp workout with the Leafs this week.And Kessel, who has had a reputation within some circles of the Toronto media for being uptight and brittle, may actually be following his own philosophy. He's showing his fun side more than ever to his teammates. In fact, he's taken charge of team fun lately."He has a great place and he has the guys over for football games," good friend Tyler Bozak says. "There's a lot of chirping going on. It can get pretty vocal on who wins and who loses, but Phil treats us great, he always has good food and stuff for us. He's kind of coming up with ideas to do things in the dressing room, and they're good ones . . . we usually end up doing them."...And consider this assessment of Kessel from teammate Colby Armstrong."He loves golf and fishing, he's quiet, a simple guy, T-shirt and sweatpants. He's really a softie, good natured, he likes everyone, never has a bad thing to say about anyone. He'd do anything for anyone on the team, never judges anyone . . . a super guy," Armstrong says.Armstrong, like Bozak, also mentions Kessel's new role as team social convenor. Is this the same Kessel with the prickly reputation?"I'm not like, I don't like to say overly shy . . . with people I know. It's easy, I'm very talkative," Kessel says. "But I'm not happy when we lose so I don't say much, I don't like to talk about it. But anyone can talk to me, I'm approachable."
Quote from: Fanatic on October 03, 2011, 07:03:18 AMI am glad that he serves good food when the guys comne over to watch football and that he likes to golf and fish. I just wish he had the same competitive fire in him that a guy like Phaneuf has. But hey, at least he is not letting something as silly as the playoffs get in the way of his golf game.
Quote"Kessel certainly isn't chatty after losses. Or when he's in a scoring slump. Like most pro athletes, he's competitive by nature."
Quote from: Leaf 50 on October 03, 2011, 08:12:28 AMIf Kessell can score 40 goals,I'd like to see him actually do it .That said,I'm not holding my breath just yet.
