If you're thinking best player, I'd put him at about 3/4th again, behind Wheeler, Bogosian, and maybe Buff.

If you're talking advertising, Buff, Ladd, and Pavalec are all at least as prevalent as him on billboards around town.
Where are your stats on jersey sales? I'm not saying you're wrong but my experience has been that Kane jerseys are far more popular in Winnipeg than Pavelec or Wheeler jerseys and not that far behind Buff and Ladd either. He's certainly one of the faces of the franchise - I don't think any of the other Jets players overshadow him in that respect.
