Kane is a better player than Kessel this year. Unless you think Kessels .02 ppg over Kanes is worth the much less physical play? Or the worse defensive game?

So we have a guy with 10 times as many hits (in 2 less games ) with a +2 on a team thats -11, that is a top penalty killer.

Or the guy with .02 ppg higher that is scared of going into corners and who doesn't Pk at all. Minus 2 on a team that's plus 10.

How exactly is Kessel better this year?
Different players develop at a different pace. Using this reasoning then i guess kane in 2-3 years>>>> Giroux considering giroux only had 47 points in 82 games as a 21 years old. Also wasn't that just after the season kessel recovered from cancer?
