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.
The only real difference other than age between the two - is that Jason Blake probably could have done more in Toronto.
I have seen the absolute best from Phil Kessel - and its helped propel this team no higher than 9th last!
But if you want to join the rest of them and sugar coat the fact that the Phil Kessel experiment has/is not working in Toronto then by all means - take up the mantle.
