Oh by the way, I meant to mention and I'm not sure if you're aware, but Kessel had off-season shoulder surgery and won't be back until sometime in November. And I'm sure it will take him a while to get back up to his normal level of play. That was another factor that made me feel the Leafs gave up a bit too much.
