Well put, i definetly see your point. It will be interesting to see how he bounces back from injury, as i am a fan of his. I wouldnt mind seeing him at the next team canada training camp. I still feel that Kessel is a more unique player in the sense he has the pure goal scorer mentality, and players like that are hard to come by at his skill level. but thats most likely my Toronto bias talking.
