Everyone is going to say "oh Kessel is a soft streaky player" blah blah blah. Every year his ppg average has gone up, he drives the net instead of shooting from the outside and is a great setup man as well as sniper.

He makes his teammates better and has improved drastically since being lined up with other first line players.

Eriksson plays a GOOD Dallas team that had a bad season and sold off the system. All the vets are gone, and now it's Eriksson and Benn to lead this team until their prospects improve.

The difference is that even when Kessel was surrounded by terrible players, he was still putting up 30+ goals.
Hey news flash - Dallas has not had much talent either playing with Erkisson over the last 4 seasons but yet he has produced....hmmmm interesting isn't it.
