It is when he's one of the best goal scorers in the league. Sure he could he improve but you could say that about a lot of players in the league. Phil Kessel's defensive play is greatly exaggerated, he's on the ice to score goals and create chances for his team, let's not forget that; and he does a good job at it too.
