For Kessel this is an improvement on last years TSN 2011-12 top 50 list (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/feature/?id=49962) where he didn't crack the line-up.

The panelist put him on this years list due to his past season performance as they felt he took Bobby Ryan's place on the chart, who also has 4 straight 30+ goal seasons but ended up being ranked #51 this year and falling out of their top 50.
Phaneuf also has a 'C'. Luongo also had a 'C'. Doesn't make you a good leader. He played in Columbus, not like they had too many options.

I agree with you on Kessel, however I disagree that Nash is some type of leader. And let's get real, he wasn't alone on team Canada...
