Voted Kane, but I'd the question is who is better right now, I might be persuaded that the answer is Brown. In the future, and possibly now, it's Kane

It's a toss up now but it'll be Kane, by a fairly wide margin, in the future.

Right now, I think there's a slight edge to Dustin Brown; however, I would take Kane no question because he's already aroound the same level as Brown and is very likely to become much, much, better (and that's not a knock on Brown).

Is Kane seriously winning this poll? Talk about overrating young players.

Right now, Brown >> Kane. I don't even know how can you argue otherwise. Brown is a consistent 25-30, 55-60 points guy, great skater, hits like a truck, is clutch, draws all kinds of penalties (whether you like his methods or not) and leads by example. Kane might be a better goalscorer now but currently he's badly outclassed elsewhere.

I assumed this was right now in which case the answer is Dustin Brown.

In the future, it will probably be Evander Kane.

I'll have to agree. The only logical reason for kane leading in the voting is hf's youth factor. The younger player is always overrated due to their potential.

Funny thing, Brown didn't hit 25-30 goals or 55-60 points this year. Also, I keep hearing that he's a pretty bad skater, and that's why he keeps falling so easily. And are you really saying that Brown is a MUCH better skater than Evander Kane? Skating is one of Kane's best qualities. He's an amazing skater.

And additionally, Kane drew 1.5 Penalties per 60 minutes on even strength, which would put him as #2 on LA after Brown (who stands at an impressive 2.2), so it's not like he's a slouch in that department either. Actually, he's right up in the top of the league.

He does not have experience from the playoffs, so I can't really say if he's clutch.

But really, Brown >> Kane right now?

IMO it's a good poll. It's close, and it should be too.

Now, I personally don't like Brown's antics, so I'm homer voting for Kane!

Really interesting thread. I don't see enough of Kane to make a comparison, but I know from his draft scouting report etc., he has a very high ceiling. Looking at the numbers, they followed very similar trajectories at the same age. Brown leveled off and in terms of offensive numbers, Brown today is the same as Brown at age 23 or so. You really can't judge his numbers from last year because every King was below average PPG-wise until Murray was fired. We'll see if Kane continues to rise. He certainly has the potential.

Brown

Brown are an example of constancy a leader. Kane has very bad abitude, and he was kicked out from the KHL.
