So yes, I strongly believe Kessel is not entirely "useless" outside of scoring. Perhaps the term "useless" should have been used in better context, no?
He specifically stated if he isn't scoring he is useless.

And here you just list more of the same. Basically if he isn't generating assists and being fast and pokechecking (rarely happens).

He gives up WAY more turnovers than he takesaway.

Not even close.

So here's what he said because it seems you forgot.

Rip it apart all you want but I have no doubt many will agree with me.
And here's how you spun it.

Nice try and all, but it's pretty obvious what the point was.

Kessel is easily one of the worst defensive players in the league. And for further clarification that means all aspects not involved with offence.

Believe it or not but there exists times in hockey when a player doesn't have the puck on his or his teams stick and Kessel is basically useless as a player in engaging players.

He avoids contact, corners, board battles, cherry picks, and doesn't really go through much trouble to work hard.

Here's another thread btw.
