The reason that I think Kessel is a good fit on the Blues is twofold. One, they do have a consistent, 30-50 point group, but they lack a star scoring player. While being 1st in goals against per game, they are also 21st in goals forward per game. Kessel will bring you 30-40 extra goals per year, which is huge. And if you put him on a line with a guy like Backes, you are putting him in an atmosphere where his line mates create time and space for him. Likely making his point production higher.
