Report: Kessel denies that he's broken off negotiations with B's

Boston Bruins forward Phil Kessel spoke with Sportsnet.ca on Thursday afternoon and denied a Boston Globe report that he's broken off all negotiations with the Boston Bruins. Kessel said that he didn't think he would be a member of the Boston Bruins during this coming season, but also said that returning was still a remote possibility.
"I don't know who is saying that, but it's not true," Kessel told sportsnet when asked about cutting off talks with the B's after a summer that featured very little in the way of negotiations. "You can never say never. They are doing what they think is best for them. It's just business."
The Boston Globe reported the free agent planned to sign an offer sheet with one of the other 29 teams in the NHL, but Kessel clearly poured cold water all over that report. Kessel also admitted to Sportsnet that the negotiations and trade rumors have been uncomfortable, and that his chances of returning to Boston were slim.
