If the Canucks had no cap concerns, he would be. If the Canucks didn't have to deal Schneider, he would be. If the Canucks hadn't been stifled by bigger checking teams, he would be. But as it stands, Kessel is not an ideal piece to the Canucks. In general? Sure. A team like St. Louis or NYR before they got Nash would make great sense. To VAN, I would say not.

He's an all-star calibre sniper/playmaker, and some lucky team out there is going love having him on the roster. I just don't see that team being VAN, for a multitude of reasons.
