The same Kessel who have uses the same toe drag move and shot away from traffic since he became known to this day?
The same Kessel who on a stacked US team in the Olympics managed to look as invisible as he is now?
You really think he will change? He do work a bit harder, at least he did for the first two games. But now he is back to his usual game, minus the scoring.
Very few player make a complete change in how they play and they sure dont change their personality. Kessel is what he is. A speedy sniper who is afraid of the physical stuff.
The same Kessel that finished 6th in the league in scoring last year, behind Malkin, Stamkos, Giroux, Spezza (2pts), Kovalchuk (1pt), and ahead of Tavares, Sedin, Thornton, Gaborik, Kopitar, St. Louis, Staal, Zetterberg ++ -- while playing with Tyler Bozak.
The same Kessel that has 4 30+ goal seasons in each of the last 4 years. Including 37 last year.
The same 25 year old that already has 165 career goals.
The same 25 year old that has more goals than Spezza, Malkin or Kovalchuk over the last 4 years.
The same 25 year old that hasn't scored in 5 games and is considered a bum by ignorant fans like you.
