I disagree. I think kessel is closer to a franchise player than sharp, but i don't think its significant. Was hossa on that team? Lets say the cutoff is kane, there's still 3 guys better than our best player with 3 more guys who are at the very least in his category. And kessel is by far the most talented player on the leafs. The top end talent isn't even close to comparable. And that's what matters.
Like in LA, after kopitar/quick/doughty you still have brown/Richards/carter who are all at or near kessel's level.
I agree about sharp, might still take Seabrook over kessel though.
