Jonathan Toews is awesome, no doubt. I just don't think he's as awesome as some people here do.

I think Toews will top out around 80-90 points in his prime while playing excellent two-way hockey and being a tremendous leader.

Kessel meanwhile I think will contend for the Rocket Richard trophy annually in his prime, and is a good bet to top 100 points more than once.

It all depends on what your team needs. In Boston, we already have two centers who play a similar two-way game to Toews in Bergeron and Krejci - not nearly as good, mind you, but we already have them. Factor in the leadership brought on by guys like Lucic and Stuart, and we're set in that department for the foreseeable future, as well.

Me? I take Kessel. I really think the sky is the limit for this kid, as evidenced by his current 15 game point streak and 55 goal pace at 21 years old.
