Kane is far better at going to the dirty areas to score, far better physically, defensively and he's faster. The only advantage Kessel has is his shot (Kane's is actually not elite, despite his numbers).

Kane also hasn't stopped developing. If you're basing your assessment of his game from last year, you're way off today. He has been better than Kessel was at every point in their respective careers to date and Kane can still be better. He recently signed for 6 years and is significantly younger than Kessel.

You want Kane, as everybody else does, the price is two top-10 picks (which the Leafs won't have) - absolutely no less. Kessel wouldn't be considered.
