JVR in three years, and a true #1 center with Kessel and a better defense will go a long ways in helping that. Kessel alone is NOT the reason the line gets scored on more than it scores. I just don't see it. Still a team game. Kessel needs help, there is no denying that is there? Every team needs a #1 line player that can pot 30+ goals or more.
Look at the past 20 years of Stanley Cup champions. Has a team won without a 30+ goal a year player?
Sure trade Kessel. That's fine if the return is Awesome. But if not, where are the goals the rest of this year, next year and the year after going to come from?
It would score less but would still score more goals then it let in. Understand? That's how teams win hockey games, by scoring more goals then it lets in. I'd tone down the laughter if I wasn't 100% sure of my position but I guess that's just me.
