The two seem strikingly similar this year IMO.

I could care less if he ever scores again - were winning - without him
No, Jason Blake never led the league in shots while he was in Toronto. If you'll remember back a few years, that was when Ovechkin was taking like 500 shots a season. When Jason Blake came to Toronto, he was around 34 years old. Phil Kessel is currently 25 in his fourth season in Toronto. Jason Blake scored over 30 goals (40) once in his life, the season before coming to Toronto. He was 33 years old at that time. Phil Kessel is 25 (as mentioned above) and is coming off his fourth straight 30 goal season. But I mean, they're both American? That's about how far the comparison goes.
