moving Phil isn't a cap space move, moving Johnson would be. Moving Marleau was. etc.

He did another one recently about Kessel, even referenced the one you showed. I almost posted it because it reminded me of someone on this board ;)

FWIW here are Sullivan quotes to Dave Molinari this evening on DK's website. There was probably more going on than he will admit, but I assume he saw no reason to throw Kessel under the bus in this interview as it would serve no purpose.

“My relationship with Phil has been the same for four years,” Sullivan said. “There were times when Phil and I had our disagreements over the course of our time together, but it wasn’t any more than it was in Years 1, 2 or 3. Sometimes, the speculation gets blown out of proportion that we had this real adversarial relationship, where we were at odds, and there was confrontation all the time. Quite honestly, there wasn’t."

“Did we have some discussions over the course of the season that one would consider ‘confrontational?’ Sure. But that’s part of the coach-player relationship. I’ve had that with many players, not just Phil. My relationship with Phil was the same as it was in Years 1, 2 and 3.”

“Let’s just say that Phil has strong convictions on how he feels the game should be played, on how he thinks he should be played and utilized in certain situations,” Sullivan said. “Sometimes, we were in agreement and other times, we weren’t. That’s part of what makes Phil the player that he is.”

Sullivan did not respond directly to a question about the ways he found Kessel difficult to coach, but acknowledged that their perspectives on Kessel’s niche with the Penguins weren’t always in sync.

"Although The Great Gatsby was well-received when it was published, it was not until the 1950s and '60s, long after Fitzgerald's death, that it achieved its stature as the definitive portrait of the "Roaring Twenties," as well as one of the greatest American novels ever written."

Note: My original point on my Fitz comment was regarding the spelling/grammar gendarme. Would it help if Fitz was labelled famous, as opposed to great? It matters not a twit to me.

Since there is still an active Kessel thread (since he's now NPR material) I'll put this here. I mentioned previously the John Scott fight with Phil Kessel, and how it all went down. This is a good interview from this week of Scott again describing the whole scene of what lead to him jumping Kessel in that preseason game years ago.

I now dislike John Scott more than I did after his bogus ASG selection.
