Bruins have made "multiple offers" to Kessel

According to Kevin Paul Dupont's weekly Hockey Notes column in this morning's Boston Globe, the Bruins have made multiple offers to Phil Kessel this offseason:

Headed into the weekend, it was same ol’, same ol’ on the Phil Kessel watch. No reason to expect him on Causeway Street when the Bruins open training camp Sept. 12. A Group 2 free agent, he remains without a contract. A source familiar with the sporadic talks throughout the summer confirmed that the Bruins front office has made multiple offers, with varying length of term, but nothing has convinced the speedy 21-year-old winger to sign on the dotted line. Kessel told this space two weeks ago that he will have a new deal prior to the season - be it here or elsewhere - and he also felt that David Krejci’s new three-year pact (average $3.75 million) didn’t factor into where he set his value. Meanwhile, a New York Post story had the Rangers possibly ready to pony up for Kessel, who must sign prior to Dec. 1 or will be unable to play in the NHL in 2009-10.

Kessel's contract situation has been discussed ad nauseum this offseason, so I won't add anymore baseless speculation to the discussion, but it appears that the two sides are still far apart.
