I just can't imagine how great a Crosby to Kessel pairing would be with the shot Kessel has, along with the speed too.
However...Kessel never really broke out until this season.
If we had drafted Phil...we might be better today...but I wonder if we make the playoffs 2 years ago or the cup last given how good Staal was in the playoffs as a shutdown center?
Or maybe Kessel would have developed much faster paired with Sid?
Did Shero blow it?
