This of course is because you think Kesler is a 70 point player because of one season, which his career statistics don't support.

Actually he has had two 70+ point seasons. And I think it is fair to say that he could reach 70+ again given quality line mates. He is not an elite offensive player. No doubt. But he is a good offensive player to go along with an elite defensive skillset.
To comment on the topic. This is a trade neither team wants to do.
