Should all of our players avoid all forms of physical contact because they might get hurt? If the idea of physical contact is so frightening to you, then you shouldn't be playing the game of hockey. Should everyone stop driving because there's a chance they might get in an accident?
No, but you make it sound like Phil Kessel should look to get hit.

I want Phil Kessel to face as little contact as he can. If he gets hit, he gets hit, and that happens.

Often, Kessel moves the puck and avoids the hit. But people naturally focus on the negative, thus people only focus on Kessel's giveaways and defensive game.

People also tend to want what they don't have. We deal Kessel for Bobby Ryan lets say... People will turn around and start tearing Ryan's game apart, and say they wish we had Kessel's scoring
