Kessel Has Goals On His Mind

from Paul Hunter of the Toronto Star,

On a team historically bereft of big-time scorers, Phil Kessel believes he can achieve what only one Maple Leaf has been able to do in the last 15 seasons.

That’s topping the 40-goal mark.

“I think I can score 40. I could have had it last year if I’d have scored (consistently). I had a lot of chances, plus I missed quite a bit of games,” said the 22-year-old winger as he passed through town for the unveiling of Dion Phaneuf as Toronto’s captain and Tuesday’s opening of Real Sports Bar and Grill, MLSE’s playpen beside the Air Canada Centre.

“I’m going to improve on last year. Hopefully, I’m going to be a better hockey player,” Kessel continued.

I was at the opening of Real Sports last night, and if you’re in Toronto, or visiting, it’s INCREDIBLE….

That’s funny to me. What a winner.
