Yes. Leaf fans can't deny that Phil was our best player during our worst years, and it was unfortunate that he played here during that time. If you were to take 2011-12 Phil Kessel and put him with the likes of Matthews, Marner, JT, and Nylander... your probably looking at a 100 pt season for the guy. But now, he's slower, he's getting quite older and I don't think Toronto feels the need to bring him back. We got a lot of scoring as of now, and adding somebody like Brandon Hagel would be better in the sense that Hagel plays similarly to Bunting... mean, agitative, hard nose, drive to the net style of player, and he pots quite a few goals by doing so. His speed is a bonus.
Toronto's main focus (IMO) will be to find a top 4 defender and a middle-six scoring winger. They will be looking for term more so than rentals to, as the Foligno trade last deadline has haunted Dubas, and thus they arent to keen on acquiring rentals for top prospects/picks
