He's not on that level.
He's on the level as the aforementioned players I said before. I'm not comparing him to scrubs.
Mark Recchi lead his team in points MOST seasons, is 12th on the all-time scoring list, and ended with 500+ goals, 1500+ points, and 3 Stanley cups. Recchi puts up some of the most phenomenal numbers, in NHL history, so don't pretend like I'm putting Kessel into some 3rd rate category.
And much like Kessel, Recchi was never considered to be dominant. There is another 'tier' of players most teams would rather have.
Think of it like this: Kessel, like Recchi is an AMAZING player, but neither were or will be a real threat to win any NHL hardware.
