How much longer does Kesler have to sustain it for? Parise has had 2 seasons of over 80 points. This is going to be Kesler's 2nd season of over 70 points. I'm not saying Kesler is on Parise's level, but if you're going to call Parise proven, I would do so for Kesler as well.

Kesler has 5 more seasons left on his contract, Parise has one. Without knowing what Parise's true intentions are, that's a huge advantage for Kesler's value. Would you rather take the guy with one year left on his contract and thus far shown very little indication to re-sign or the player who's a tier below, but is locked in for another 5 seasons at a very good rate? You can call me a homer if you want, but I've gotta take Kesler.
