Kessel is 24, turning 25 this year. Seguin is 20, turning 21 next year. How is this 'very close'? Kessel has 6 years of NHL experience, Seguin has 2. Context means something. Youth means very little without potential, but if we judge them at same age seguin had 67 points and kessel had 37. I'm not even pointing that out though. I was pointing out that seguin has room to grow to match kessel's production. Seguin will be as good as kessel no question.
