Scoring goals is a team effort. Our two highest goals/game team stats over the past 5 years have been in the two years we didn't have Kessel.
You subtract Kessel from the 1st line and bump MacArthur or somebody else up there? They will get slightly more goals than they would on the 2nd line, and the player bumped from the 3rd line to the 2nd line would get slightly more goals than they would on the 3rd line.
I don't think our overall goal output would take much of a hit. And our goals against should also go down slightly with more responsible 1st line wingers, and then the return on Kessel wouuld have the potential to give us a legitimate core piece.
At this point in time I'd rather get JVR/Kessel a C that helps them outscore their other deficiency's.
