Yup.

He will be the go to guy in a way he hasn't had to be in the past.

And, btw, this is the exact reason I don't buy the earlier posts that label Kessel soft. Going into a pressure cooker like Toronto, being asked to be the man, and then coming through in grand fashion, is not something a player can do without a lot of mental toughness.
