Hell based of Eriksson contract alone he is more valuable.
I won't argue 2-way game... but let's just be clear that Eriksson has been nominated for the Selke the same amount of times as Kessel has.

With that said, it's not wise to dismiss the fact that Kessel is two years younger (currently 25) and then bring up four years of Eriksson's production as a reason for why he is superior. It's far better to compare their numbers when they were both 23, 24, etc.

Kessel at 23 = 64 points (82 games)
Loui at 23 = 63 points (82 games)

Kessel at 24 = 82 points (82 games)
Loui at 24 = 71 points (82 games)

Kessel at 25 = 43 points (42 games so far)
Loui at 25 = 73 points (79 games)

Loui has since had seasons of 71 points (82 games) and 26 points (42 games).

Compare away!
