Found this in Chris Johnston’s Toronto season recap:
“He’s got to start working out and get himself in the best shape he’s ever been in his life, be totally committed to it,” said Wilson. “So that he doesn’t suffer some of these injuries … He’s got a summer where he can make himself stronger, get himself fitter, so when the season starts he’s in the best shape of his life and he can maximize his God-given abilities.”
Gee, can you guess who Toronto head coach Ron Wilson is talking about? No one should be surprised that Phil Kessel was never in shape. Now that he’s in the midst of the multi-year deal he demanded, we’ll see if he ever does commit himself to becoming the player that the Bruins might get Taylor Seguin or Tyler Hall for.
