Sorry to derail this further but Kesler has:
U17 Gold Medal
U18 gold medal
WJC Gold Medal
WJC Silver Medal
Olympic Silver Medal

His only full season in the AHL he posted a 30 goal season and the Moose lost in the conference finals. The same season Richards joined, along with Carter, an already stacked Phantoms team to win the Calder Cup.

I am not attempting to put Richards down and to me they are pretty much identical in terms of impact to their teams, in fact I think they are good comparables for each other.
