And unless JVR sinks the winning goal in a Stanley Cup finals game to clinch the cup within the next few years, it is going to burn me up forever. That is his measuring stick.
I think this is the case right here. Whether it is a fair or equal comparison or not doesn't matter. WHen you are #2 in the draft you will always be compared to #1. They are two very different players with different skill sets and so forth, but since they went 1-2, it's always going to be Kane v. JVR. If JVR blows up and scores 100 points the next three years and Kane only scores in the 60s or something, guess what people will start saying the Hawks maybe made the wrong choice.
