Canadiens Goalie Carey Price Totally Burns Phil Kessel and the Maple Leafs (Video)

carey price burns phil kessel and maples leafs

In case you haven’t heard, the Toronto Maples Leafs are having a little PR crisis this year. The richest, most valuable hockey team in the world just cannot put a respectable product out on the ice. Thus, the fans who foot the bill are getting fed up and throwing Leafs jerseys onto the ice during games.

Why do I bring this up? As context for the behind-the-scenes footage from last weekend’s NHL All-Star festivities in Columbus. Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price sees a Maples Leafs fan walking down the steet in a Phil Kessel jersey and cracks a pretty great joke.

Take a look:

The best part about this video is the short pause after Carey Price points out the Phil Kessel sweater. It’s like he thought of the joke right away, debated for a moment whether he should say it, and then decided, yeah, it’s too good to pass up.

I do kinda feel bad for Phil Kessel, though. It sucks to be a Maple Leaf right now. If he’s lucky, the Leafs will decide to trade Kessel to a good team and suck with a whole new group of players for a while.
