Hemsky is the better offensive player and is more skilled.
Kesler is the complete packagage, he can fight, hit, capable of scoring over 25 goals and is a selke nominee, he is imo the top 5 defensive forward in the league.

Kesler but it's close.

Hmmm ...

My first thought was to pick Hemsky and that it was a no-brainer. Since the lockout, he's pretty much been a 1st liner and averaged nearly a point-a-game.

But after thinking over it some more, it really just comes down to team needs and preference in style of play.

I will lean towards Hemsky for now, but if Kesler shows that his offensive output this year was not a fluke than I might give him the edge because the rest of his game is more well-rounded.

Why are there stupid threads out there like this? Kesler and Hemsky play different roles, there different players. How can you compare them?

I'd give it to Hemsky because hes a better offensive player. It is close because Kesler's leadership/defensive ability's but for now Hemsky for sure. But like I said you can't really compare them

yep. The same can be said that a top 6 forward and a first line center is a same thing as well. Just noting that he's a 2nd line center not a 1st liner.

I'm guessing you've found the Hemsky v Sedin polls to be redudant, so you moved down the chain.

Hemsky is the better offensive player and Kesler is the more complete player. I say its pretty close and depends on the teams need.
