According to Wilson, Kessel wasn't even going to play tonight but with others also battling injuries, was forced into duty.

Good news from the standpoint of Kessel's play as he wasn't even all that bad.  Bad news from the standpoint, that the argument of "other guys are hurt so Kessel had to play" in a preseason game.  If he wasn't going to play, why play him because Mike Brown can't get his 3rd/4th line butt into the lineup on a consistent basis?  Or maybe don't throw a guy out there who can only play 5 and a half minutes of hockey a night?

I wonder if there's going to be a trade soon. We're beginning to have a glut of players.


I wouldn't be surprised if Kadri's name were included as trade material.  I still think if he (Kadri) establishes himself, he'll be good enough to make the team, for the interim at least.  It's anyone's guess just who may or may not remain part of the team for the longer term.

Besides, I like Frattin.  He has demonstrated a wicked slapshot, and plenty of room for improvement, at least, for the near future.

yeah what is up with that? So thee was no other forward who could have dressed? How about a 7th Dman? Crazy thinking. Lets play the teams leading goal scoreer with a groin problem because we have no other >:(

Grabovski has really grown on me.  When we first got him I wasn't too impressed, but I really like the way he's developed as a Leaf.

TML is probably just trying to keep the media from dumping on Kessel/Connolly before the season starts.

He was awful the first year but he's really blossomed.

Well let's hope Kessel get's some rest if he isn't 100%.

I've read a couple media comments about what a great goal that shortie was by Grabbo and it was but I'm pretty sure the shot was deflected, fwiw.

Looked like a 100% clean snipe to me.
