DK is kind of ridiculous and shouldn't be taken seriously, but this article is really just a bunch of quote from Kessel about how happy he is to be going to Pittsburgh. He sounds positively overjoyed.

Meanwhile, Steve Dangle gives his reaction to the trade. The last four minutes or so are a nice summary of Kessel's strengths and weaknesses.

And if you need an example of just how bad and well into ridiculous the Toronto media is, here's one dude's take on the Kessel trade. You see why I have a soft spot for the guy. He gets so much crap.

Specifically, he gets a ton of flack for his eating habits and not looking like what we generally expect athletes to look like. Reading media about him is like Survey of Bodyshaming 101. Even people I generally think of as respectable journalists or bloggers just have to get a line in about how he's a good player despite what he looks like. The guy was the highest-scoring guy on the Leafs all six years he was there. He's one of the fastest in the league. Does it really matter a damn if he LOOKS athletic?

In other Pens news, the Geno plus (fake) animals saga continues.

Fic written for the Everywoman exchange. I finally managed to write a little Brand/Stalk noir! More or less! I feel like the ending is really weak, but :PPP

On the plus side, my recip liked it and pointed out what an excellent piano player The Stalk would surely be in a jazz bar of some kind, and just, EEEEE YES PLEASE.
