The problem is that when kessel is "off", his weaknesses dramatically outweigh his strengths.

And now into his 7th NHL season, he's still plagued by a problem that's been there since game 1. Inconsistency. Being "on" and "off".

So OF COURSE he will turn this around... He has a 7 year history of bouncin back.
Unortunately... After being "on" for a few weeks, he'll fall right back down into one of his slumps.
And on and on we go....
That point was more true for seasons past than this season. Kessel's work away from the puck has much improved, and he's still generating scoring chances that his linemates are cashing in on. Judging him by his play (and not just by the scoreboard), he seems very much "on" atm.
