Bet on Hockey – Bruins Kessel Still Unsigned

Bet on hockey action is just over three weeks away and the Boston Bruins have not signed one of their best players, Phil Kessel.

Hockey betting has the Bruins and a contender to win the Stanley Cup as they are listed at 8.5 to 1 at the online sportsbook.

Bet on hockey has the Bruins with $55 million committed to this season for player’s salaries and they are trying to convince Kessel to make a deal. “Phil is eager to get back in the mix, I guess. I respect the fact that he loves the game and wants to be back.” Boston general manager Peter Chiarelli said, “and I guess he expects the ice will break because of the end of the summertime cap.’’

The Bruins could have to move Kessel if things don’t change as bet on hockey has it. “Nothing has really changed,’’ Chiarelli said, “I’d like to have him in the mix, but obviously he’s not . . . and obviously teams are interested.’’ Kessel had 36 goals as bet on hockey indicates last year for the Bruins. Hockey betting has Boston dealing with some serious payroll issues since they will have to deal with top scorer Marc Savard going into unrestricted free agency and young players Milan Lucic and Blake Wheeler reaching restricted free agency.

The Bruins could get rid of right wing Michael Ryder to free up salary but that seems unlikely as bet on hockey has it since Ryder is a favorite of head coach Claude Julien. One of the teams interested in Kessel is Toronto as bet on hockey notes. Toronto general manager Brian Burke tried to get Kessel back in June as bet on hockey had it and may try again. The Nashville Predators and New York Rangers have also inquired about Kessel as bet on hockey info indicates. Hockey betting has the Leafs making a possible offer to Kessel which means the Bruins then would have a right to match the deal or accept compensation.

The bottom line for Kessel as bet on hockey shows is that he will get more money but probably not from Boston. The Bruins hockey betting odds probably won’t move much if they lose Kessel but it sure would hurt their bet on hockey results this season at the sportsbook. The situation with Kessel definitely deserves monitoring as the bet on hockey season gets underway at the sportsbook.
