I certainly will not say he is even close to being a defensive stud, because he is not. But the fact of the matter is everyone has a bad stretch or two and when Kessel is on his game, we win games. That simple. Hence my original point as to why he is not "useless" as Dave seems to think.
Rip it apart all you want but I have no doubt many will agree with me.
Kessel is definitely one of the worst defensive forwards in the league.
Ask any non Leafs fan who is the worst defensive player in the league, and his name will come up more often than not
