Not necessarily. He passes if he has confidence they can create a scoring chance. We saw glimpses of it last year with Higgins and Booth. Both were capability of crashing the net and opening up opportunities, so Kesler passed. Kessel would bring a different eleent but is undoubtedly capable of creating offense.
What also needs to be taken into consideration is how the opposition responses? Kesler is their sole target because he is infinitely more dangerous. If we iced Burrows/Kesler/Kessel, the dynamic changes. They cannot focus on just Kesler because leaving Kessel open is far more likely to burn you than Booth.
