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.
That's true about the stats but Mark Recchi would go through a wall to make his teams win and was pretty hardnosed. Can you say the same about Kessel?
