Zetterberg has had a much more illustrious career than Kesler up to this point and will retire with better numbers but if you're looking at the present and immediate future, the 2 become close.

In short, they stack up very well going forward.
I love Kesler; favorite player on the roster but yeah, I'm getting Zetterberg over him. Kesler needs another huge season before you can make the case he trumps Zetterberg overall.
