Kessel contract talks still at a standstill

It doesn't seem like much has changed since the beginning of the summer  in regards to the contract negotiations between restricted free agent Phil Kessel and the Boston Bruins. Peter Chiarelli and the Bruins' brass are still toeing the company line saying that they "want Kessel back in Boston, blah, blah, etc.". Meanwhile, Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe is reporting that Kessel's agent Wade Arnott (brother of NHLer Jason Arnott) has indicated that contract talks between his client and the Bruins are "virtually non-existent". Over the course of the past few weeks, several teams including the San Jose Sharks and New York Rangers have emerged as possible suitors for Kessel. Some believe that a trade for the rights to Phil Kessel could happen before the start of the season or shortly after, if a team doesn't give Kessel an offer sheet first.
