Not sure what's so hard to grasp about the argument. Kessel has improved his play away from the puck, while sacrificing very little of his offense. The lack of his goal production isn't a result of him not getting any/enough chances.
So your plan is to get rid of top line/pairing players and hope that we end up in a position to draft top line/pairing players. Brilliant.
Different teams, have different needs. That's why trades happen.
