Both Kane and Kopitar are at the top of their small, respective categories. When you look at the trajectory of the development of a player like Kane you might notice that so far it's not unlike a Hawerchuk or Yzerman-type path of development, taking different eras into account. Kopitar still looks more like someone who'll steadily improve like an Iginla or something.
Okay, although I don't agree with it. This is something with sense. Well said.
