if i was building a team and a choice between the 2, id take Kesler 10 out of 10. Maybe DET fans wouldnt, who cares.

point being just because someone gets more or less points, has really no significance to the calculation of who is better. its about as irrelevant as a survey of their favourite ice cream.
If anybody knows that points don't tell the whole story it's Detroit fans. From what I could tell nobody was saying Filppula is better then Kesler. I don't think he is much worse I think Kesler has gotten a lot of pub playing for Van and his 40 goal season really put him on the map. He had a problem living up to that last year.

I think that the comparison in points was to show that Kesler isn't THAT much more valuable than Filppula. The real difference is Kesler's physical play and contract. I Filppula was signed to a good deal the difference would be Cleary +.
