NHL Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Phil Kessel

Phil Kessel is starting to generate interest on the free-agent market, and it seems quite possible that the veteran winger will find a new home soon. Due to this, let's discuss two potential landing spots for him now. 

New York Rangers: The Rangers could be an intriguing spot for Kessel to land. Blake Wheeler has struggled mightily as their 3RW, and Kessel would give them another solid option for the role. With that, the Rangers could use more secondary scoring, so there could be a good match between him and the club if they reach an agreement. 

Calgary Flames: Things are BAD in Calgary right now, and the Flames need some help because of it. Scoring has been an issue for the club, so they certainly could be in the mix for a player like Kessel. On a cheap one-year deal, there would be no harm in taking a chance on him. 

We will need to wait and see if either one of these two clubs end up bringing in Kessel from here.
