There's a reason why I try to ignore these type of threads. It's filled with people who make judgements and claims but clearly don't watch the team or player that they are making the judgment on. Kesler scoring 40 goals is impressive as hell when you consider who his teammates are. If you followed this team even a little you would know his line has often been dubbed the helicopter line because he had no wingers or support 5 on 5. And if you want to get into PP talk then again watch this team even a little and you would understand that without Kesler our PP it would not be even close to as dominant as it is. Him standing in front of the net and screening the goalie (which may not show on the score sheet always) is one of the main reasons why our PP is so successful. Does Kesler benefit from playing with Henrik and Daniel on the PP? Sure and it's no crime. But they benefit as well from having him there. It goes both ways.
Anyways I think its pretty close between Giroux and Kesler. Richards isn't too far behind but I'm having a hard time choosing between Kesler and Giroux for the 1 and 2. I have a feeling that Giroux will have a better year than Kesler though and that will give him the 1 spot.
