Ask Canucks fans... in his early years Kesler wasn't THAT good in his own end, yes he was good but not as good as he is TODAY. Lapierre still has a lot to learn, he will get better as well.
Maybe some of you need to step outside of the 'HF consensus' sometimes....
And no I would not post this on the main board because most people over there havn't seen both play enough and think Lapierre is just a 4th liner that has no talent and Kesler one of the best two-way player in the game... and both are not true IMO.
2 years ago Kessler was already a hot commodity because he was considered a guy who could play against top lines every night. Lapierre who is working hard, doesn't have much in the way of instinctive play. He contributes, and can play on the team but Lapierre has a lot to improve on to get to Kessler's game.
If Chip could move better, he'd be in that role now.
