Could both Kessell and Seguin have been newer Kane/Toews combo?

A lot of inquiry can be made by this further analysis. Boston already has a steady offense ran by 4 interchangeable lines producing equal goal distribution. Not many players are needed to be parted with after this season. Though, a few items to dissect can be taken out here.

After watching of late the constant surge, urgency put up by Chicago of not wanting to be eliminated has been utilized by only two prime and deadly pieces with Patrick Kane and Jonathon Toews. Both were thought highly of in the means of a constant goal scorer and winner in late games. Likewise, Boston previously salvaged two tangible players. Say Phil Kessell and Tyler Seguin. Obviously both were drafted into a further established franchise. Unlike Kane and Toews who were brought up to make mandatory impacts rather reluctantly.

Phil Kessell early on showed similarities in Kane's play. Granted back then his defense was and is still a liability to be counted for. But was a free wheeler who knew how to put pucks into the net from all sides. Something the Bruins are still lacking and could certainly use. A few years later, Tyler Seguin an identical threat like Kessell (a high octane goal scorer) who later was sent away by not fitting the overall Bruins style). Was still growing at 19 years old, still finding himself minus the hangover troubles he endured during last year's playoffs.

Both trades sought benefit in the long run, Seguin was replaced by great complementary assets in Riley Smith and Lou Erickson. Kane and Toews fill up a lot of gaps in the Blackhawks complete game. Scoring isn't just the mindset of those two but the mentality of not wanting to lose. Clearly, Boston has players who exemplify this current state. Yet, a complete sniper and outright goal scorer is a lacking point that was pushed to the limits this season, unexpectedly. When all 4 lines wasn't producing no one was there to help assist. Kessell and Seguin are gone now for clear and straight forward reasons. Though, maybe if both were still sticking around. A different mindset would've been shown.
