Kesler is bigger, more physical, much better defensively, is a center who is good at faceoffs, and a leader. He's also signed to a pretty darn good contract until 2016.

We already have two pure offensive guys in the Sedins, we don't need to sacrifice our best defensive forward and our center depth to add more of an offensive punch.
Booth-Grabovski-Burrows would be a pretty solid two-way 2nd line. Have a Raymond-Schroeder-Kassian 3rd line. And Sedin-Sedin-Kessel would be just unfair.
