People on this board love to act like capologists and pro scouts while failing at both.
At this point, we have a dynamic offence. Kessel commands the attention of the opposing teams #1 dman all game... not Kadri, not Lupul...Kessel.
With or without the puck, he is capable of skating at 40 km/h down the ice. Only guys like Crosby can compare with his speed. Factor in his lethal wrist shot, ppposing teams are forced to focus a lot of their attention on him. He is a threat to score every time he is on the ice, keeping the other team on edge all game. This opens up opportunities for guys like Lupul and Kadri, allowing them to play with less pressure and against weaker matchups.
Factor in his credentials:
consistent 30 goal scorer with potential for more
25 years old***
doesn't need good linemates to produce
... and you have a $7 million player. With out influx of defensive prospects on cheap ELC contracts, we can afford high-priced forwards.
