In their first three years in the league - even though Kessel was a year older - they had the exact same amount of points(126). Kane also did it in 9 less games.

So if we were to talk about Kessel vs. Kane, clearly there is far more value in Kane. The trade would be:

Phil Kessel +

for

Evander Kane

Anything else is delusion coming from the center of the universe.
Their careers in the first couple of years was essentially equal. Except now, Phil HAS taken the next step in elevating his game. Kane has the potential to do it - but potential is not even close to the value of having actually done it. Phil Kessel is currently has more value because he has elevated his game again. If Kane can match and hit PPG then he'll hold more value given his style. But right now, Phil Kessel holds more value.

Accomplishment > Potential. And Phil Kessel is far more accomplished from an individual production perspective than Kane. You are delusional if you think otherwise.
