The year before, Dion missed some games, but even by PPG calculations, he was quite a bit behind Kronwall on even strength, and slightly ahead of him on the PP... Having played 1:20 more PER GAME.

The year before that, Kronwall missed nearly half the season. Using the same PPG calculations, Kronwall was slightly under Dion in even strength scoring, and 3 points behind in PP scoring... When Dion was playing 1:30 more PER GAME.

So pretty easy to see Kronwall is better on even strength, whereas Dion gets more points on the PP because he gets more time.
Dion has clearly been the better and more consistent offensively player in their careers. Dion has 5 40+ point seasons, Nik has 1. And Dion is 4 years younger.
