Reportedly some extra scrubs involved, but who cares?

The Phil Kessel saga, and all it's highs and lows, is finally over in Pittsburgh.

Frankly I think PIT got the better end of the deal here because I just don't know how much Phil the Thrill has left in the tank. Add in the fact that the situation the Pens were left in and that they actually got a player out of all this is certainly something. We'll see I guess.

Reading what The Athletic wrote on the situation, it was pretty bad and there's probably some blame on both sides. Kessel didn't want to be a 3rd line guy (even though that HBK line was one of the biggest reasons the Pens were back-to-back Cup champs) and Sullivan is a micromanager who was getting all bent outta shape about Kessel's attitude and work ethic.

Whatever though...Phil goes to the place he wanted to go and play for the guy he wants to play for. Galchenyuk gets as good an opportunity as he will ever get to prove the naysayers wrong, but time is running out for him.

Agreed on all counts. Probably for the best Phil the Thrill is gone. The relationship had soured.

Alex can score 30 and get paid in his walk year.
