True, +/- is also very much a team statistic. Nothing in hockey happens in isolation. That being said, Kessel is part of the reason for the lousy +/- because he is weak defensively. He probably costs the team almost as many goals as he scores.

You need to surround a player like Kessel with strong defensive players that can pick up the slack. The Leafs cannot do this.

But I digress..... I have already mentioned the reasons why it would be smart to trade Kessel at this point. It is buried somewhere in this thread.
