Leafs Lose Again And Phil Kessel On His Future

from Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun,

The door has been open to a possible trading of Phil Kessel for a while now.

The Maple Leafs’ all-star winger nudged that opening a little wider on Thursday night.

Asked following the Leafs’ 3-2 loss against the New York Islanders at the Nassau Coliseum whether he is worrying about the future for himself or the team.

“No,” Kessel said. “You know, I go where they want me. I love Toronto, but (if) it’s not here, it’s not here.”

The Leafs lost for the 13th time in regulation in 16 games since Randy Carlyle was shown the door and Peter Horachek took over as interim head coach.

It’s one part of another terrible run for the Leafs’ core of players that has been part of disasters in each of the past three seasons. The Leafs have lost 21 of their past 25 games, with 20 of those losses coming in regulation. That’s nine points of a possible 50.

Can you imagine how often the Leafs wouldn’t “start on time” if Babs was coaching them?

He’s done. You can’t stop this avalanche (no pun intended).
