It's Kes not Kessy.

EDIT: Kesler, when he is healthy, is better.

Is it just me, or have we already had this poll before?

Don't see how it isn't Koivu. He can carry a line by himself.

When healthy it's easily Kesler. Kesler was playing with Samuelsson and Raymond when he got 41 goals and a Selke.

Koivu for all around game and leadership.

I don't understand how people can say "easily" to either player. Both are big, strong, great in all areas of the ice, play in all situations, and both can put up a good amount of points.

I think its a preference pick.

Koivu has won every single one of those. Is there a point to keep these polls open?

Canucks fan.

I'd rather have Koivu for certain reasons, and Kesler for certain reasons. I like Kesler's physicality, and his tenaciousness, although whether thats still around after recent injuries has yet to be seen.

Koivu is far more talented offensively, in my opinion. Kesler has a great shot, sometimes, and he's super fast, but Koivu has the offensive creativity that Kesler just doesn't.

Kesler can not only carry a line but he can also win an entire playoff series by himself, matched up against the best defensive pair in the game.

Only one of the players in this poll is a 41-goalscoring Selke winner. At their peaks, Kesler's better.

But this is HFBoards, where the "what have you done for me lately mentality" rules.
