Phil Kessel has no friends
The fix was in during the NHL's first All-Star Game draft - pick your buddies, teammates and relatives. So when Phil Kessel went last in the draft it must just mean he had no friends lobbying for him. It surely has nothing to do with the fact he has sucked for long stretches of the season.
Team Lidstrom actually offered Kessel to Team Staal for the first picks in the next two All-Star Games but the deal fell through because Eric Staal insisted that Kessel throw in the car he won for getting picked last.
So Phil Kessel had the bear the shame of representing the Toronto Maple Leafs. Keep smiling Phil because you have more talent then ahlf the guys picked ahead of you.
