There’s certainly no absence of respect between Pittsburgh Penguins right-winger Phil Kessel and Ottawa Senators defenseman Dion Phaneuf, and a special sort of feeling surges through you when you realize these two will get to face off against each other in the Eastern Conference Finals. They spent six weird, miserable years on the same roster in Toronto and are now doing extremely well for themselves less than two short years later.
During the climax of the Maple Leafs’ rebuilding years in 2015-16, these two were arguably the most prominent players to be sent on different paths.
Plus, there’s a solid chance they’ll see a lot of ice time against one another, as the Senators will probably match up Erik Karlsson’s defensive pairing with Sidney Crosby as much as possible.
Depending on Head Coach Mike Sullivan’s plans for his forward lines, Phaneuf, and his line mate Cody Ceci, may see a lot of Kessel and Evgeni Malkin throughout the series.
Please do not post inappropriate comments, this is a friendly forum for fans. After such a track record and all the scrutiny this cow brings to the league and its players, you figure we and the media would have learned by now.
She is the problem here, Not the media or other players. She should either keep her legs closed or go about her business in a more subtle fashion.
If you’ve forgotten, that’s the year young hot-shot Auston Matthews came to the city of Toronto, even though that pick from Pittsburgh was traded away and not used for him.
