Agreed! I'm floored as well and yeah, he did do a lot of good things in Toronto. Can't wait to find out why. I guess this another couple of steps back for the franchise. Just what they didn't need. By the way, Kessel did finish 6th in league scoring last year. Not too shabby. When was the last time a Leaf finished that high?
