Phil Kessel recently broke the record for the longest ironman streak in the entire league history. He has consecutively played over 990 NHL games and is close to breaking 1000 games during the next month.

While having good players with an impressive X Factor might be important, having players with personality and fame from around the league matter as well. Making Kessel a must-trade for player in the game.
