Jordan Staal has not once, ever, been a 30-30 guy. In fact, hes never gotten 30 goals or 30 assists in any season. And were using Alex ovechkin as an example of a 40-40 guy whos not good at anything else? Really??
At least my comparison of Kesler/Kessel has some merit to it.
I try to make my comparisons while not choosing players who have incredible linemates.
Obviously there are comparisons that work in either direction. But I find it hard to believe that a very good all around 30-30 centerman wont make up the 20 point difference from a 40-40 one way winger.
By your logic then why do the same for Kessel? He hardly is 40g/80 p winger, he barely cracks 70 points.. So why compare Kesler, who has actually been the better offensive player last 3 seasons vs Kessel who barely got to 80 points in a career year.
And i thought Staal was a good comparison since he is excellent defensively, has gotten better opportunity to increase his scoring.
