Kassian is obviously much more talented than Kaleta. What I meant is that their point totals translating to the NHL may not be that far off because Kaleta is extremely fast and that can translate to an NHL game no matter how untalented you are.

You also assume Kassian is going to put up more points next year.
My point is that Kassian has hands and an offensive mindset that Kaleta doesn't possess.

Max could skate like the wind, but that didn't always translate to offensive production.

I believe that Kassian's hands and offensive game will have a much better chance at translating to legit top 6 offensive forward than Kaleta because I believe Kaleta doesn't have the hands.

It's easier to score with slow wheels and good hands than the other way around.
