On a good team, defense is everyone's job. Nashville has won a lot more games than we have over past few years, who was their top scorer year to year? I'd rather the Leafs won more games then have a goal scorer in the top 10 in the league. Yes, with a player like Crosby you can have both but Kessel is not that type of player. That's why some people call him a complimentary piece rather than a guy you build around.
