How exactly? If Kessels replaced by a subpar scorer whos good defensively then the Suters and Charas around the league cover the Grabo line rendering it essentially useless. That would result in the Kadri's line being the only one available to score. However, the Charas cover Kessel, Grabovski and Kulemin have easier defensive competition, Kadri has even easier competition. I dont think you realize the benefit of having an offensive threat distract the competition defensively.
