Kessel is the superior player, Duchene has the better contract status.

I'll stil take Kessel, because in the end the skill is what matters most.

Duchene. Born in '91 and already scored a lot of points in that disaster of an organization. This dude will be a beast in NHL, no doubt.

But once again it's very close

I really, really like Duchene - far more than Kessel - but the answer is clearly Kessel for me, at least right now. Now in the future, I'd say Duchene may be better, but Duchene can hope to do what Kessel has already done, at a very young age.

I'm a Maple Leafs fan and while I think that Phil Kessel is clearly the better player now I'd rather have Duchene based on potential. I think the likelihood of him reaching that potential is pretty high and he's going to become a top-10 forward in the NHL

I agree that right now Kessel is stronger offensively then Duchene, but the only aspect where he is clearly ahead of Duchene is his wrist shot. Duchene is Stronger Defensively and excels playing a more important position.

?? Kessel show he's top 10 scorer and one of the best snipers in the league. Sure Kessel may not be as good as Duchene defensively but Duchene isn't as good as Kessel is offensively either.
