So what are you saying? That Kessel is a better player because he scores more goals? Does that mean Corey Perry is a better player than Crosby because he has more goals? Yeah okay

Why is that surprising? Kessel is just as elite when it comes to Giroux. Also I'm willing to bet if he played on any other team but the Leafs and was putting up the same stats we have seen the past few years, he would get a lot more respect from other fans.

Kessel gets plenty of respect. i don't get where this nonsense of, 'it's not fair, everyone underrates him because he plays on the Leafs' when there's over a thousand comments from other fan bases that say otherwise.

Giroux is still a better player than Kessel, though. typical fickle HFB.

I agree, Kessel gets plenty of respect, he just is not as good of a player as Giroux, it's that simple.

Giroux always was and always will be the better player. Although I'd gladly take Kessel on my team as well and live with the flaws in his game, but if Kessel is your 2nd line winger, then you should have a dangerously potent offense.

I think if we started this poll again Giroux would have a very big lead. Like 65% to 35%. This poll was started on a Kessel hot streak and you know how HF is.

But to get 50 assists, your team has to score 50 goals. There's no other way for that to happen.

Do you now understand why?

There is a very good chance that by the end of the season, those 62 games will have been the only instance in the 4 past season where Kessel outproduced Giroux for any significant amount of time. It's called adding context to statistics.

Or that Jonathan Cheechoo was the better player over Joe Thornton on those Sharks teams when he was scoring 56 & 37 goals to Joe's 20 & 22 goals? Or that Peter Bondra was a better player offensively (let alone overall) than Peter Forsberg?
