08:14 AM ET 02.14 | Phil Kessel prefers to be a Leaf for life? So says his agent, Wade Arnott, who went on Toronto radio Wednesday to say so. "Phil (Kessel) is still a really young man," Arnott told the SportsNet Fan590. "He really enjoys living in Toronto and playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs. "This young man lives and breathes hockey. He was very excited to come here four years ago. I think if you asked Phil today, he'd love to finish his career here in Toronto." ... [Kessel] has led the team in scoring since his arrival from Boston in a controversial trade. He has one year left after this season on his five-year contract that will pay him $5.4 million next year. In terms of average salary, he would be the third-highest paid Leaf.
