The NHL is becoming a young league. 23 really isn't all that "young" anymore when you consider the top draft picks are starting to play when they are 18-20. Kessel has been in the NHL for almost 5 years now. While he still has plenty to learn, he shouldn't be regressing at this point in his career. He should be building on his productive seasons, and most importantly, he should be stronger on the puck, and more defensively-minded.
