Getlaf, Perry, Giroux, Eric Staal, Couture, Hall, Eberle, Hossa, Krejci (now as back then), Spezza - I'd take all of these guys ahead of both Kane and Kessel.
Are you not entertained?!?!
Yes, you can slice and dice in different ways, but I find it hard to see how someone could put Kessel in the top 10 FORWARDS in the league, much less the top 10 PLAYERS.
A Conn Smythe trophy? Before we go there, let's see him win more than one playoff round or score 40 goals first.
You can put him in the top 25 FORWARDS in the league, I don't see top 10.
I can see how you can place him at top 25 . I place him higher then that.
While he has improved since, didn't he win a car a couple of years ago. His peers were concerned about either his ride or his game.
