The only ones one-dimensional are the ones that think Kessel isn't worth it. That dimension is that they don't know jack! This isn't the same Phil Kessel from 3 years ago, watch the team before you criticize.
Yup, I don't get the "one-dimensional" BS. Maybe in his Boston days, but everyone can see that this kid jets back up the ice constantly backchecking and even mixing it up occasionally. He is better than average defensively purely based on his speed, tenacity and superior stick skills. Obviously he's not exceptional in the way that a Bergeron is but he IS exceptional offensively moreso than maybe a handful of players. I'll take an exceptional offensive output with an above average defensive capacity any day of the week. Pay him whatever he wants.
