He has never been elite? I'm guessing you haven't watched the Nashville series, where he was easily the best player dominating on both ends of the rink. He carried the whole team on his back. I'd say 41 goals and a Selke would be considered an elite season. The whole Sedins inflating his stats thing is false, he helps the Sedins out as much as they help him with his big body presence in front of the net. Most players wouldn't be as good on the pp with the Sedins as Kesler is.
His numbers are largely inflated last year since he faced 2nd tier competition and got the majority of his points with the Sedins on the PP. This is a fact. He is a good player, but I rank him alongside Zajac, Bergeron, Backes, Callahan type players. He is not elite, go make a poll about it.
