That's a pretty homeristic view. I doubt you'll find many (any?) impartial fans who agree with you. Kesler has a much more complete game, has demonstrated to be better offensively, and is widely considered to be better defensively.

..and Kesler didn't deserve his Selke.
5 seasons ago, Kesler was 23, playing in a defensive role against tough matchups, starting shifts in the defensive zone, and playin over 3 minutes a night short handed.

5 seasons ago, Sharp was 26, leading the Blackhawks in ice time/game and getting over 3 minutes per game on the power play.

If you can't understand the affects that might have on those players' goal totals, you really aren't in a position to say "Sharp is a better goal scorer because.."
