But that really only tells part of the story.

Remember that JVR took two full seasons two reach the NHL after being drafted in 2007, while Kane went straight into the NHL in 2009. In other words, this past season, when Kane potted 30, is the equivalent in terms of draft-development to JVR's rookie season, when he scored 15.

Of course players develop at different rates...and JVR's presumed "break-out" season was riddled with injuries. Still, Kane is hardly done developing either.
Same age doesn't mean same point in development. They've had similar time against NHL competition.
