If you look at there total careers to this point, yea its Kesler and Richards. But if were talking right now, Duchene is the best by a land slide. More points then the other 4 on the season, a higher +/- then the others on the season, and he's even playing a much more defensive role this year and playing it well.
If were truly talking about right now, Duchene is the best. And in the future it will likely be Duchene.
Not really. If we're taking sample sizes that small, then the better player can change game to game, or even shift to shift, and it starts getting ridiculous. It's like saying Craig Anderson "right now" is better goalie than Lundqvist.
Duchene has started the year strong, but he's coming off a bad injury-plagued season, and while he was good the two seasons prior, that level of play still wasn't as good as Kesler and Richards. He's young and has a lot of potential, so it's entirely possible that he's taken that extra jump ahead of them and will prove it over the course of the season, but it's far too early to say.
