Well because Im assuming in my comparison, that kessel remains a 40-40 guy, like he was last season. Im not looking at his 60 pt seasons and saying thats what he is.
Even using a Gaborik/Kesler debate, id still rather have Kesler.
Ill always have confidence in the 30-30 guy more than the 40-40 guy. Centers, already IMO, are more valuable. But ones who are very good in all aspects of the game do so so so much more than 1 extra point every 4 games. I have little doubt that the center prevents more than 1 goal every 4 games with their defensive play, PK, face-offs, etc.
