Two years ago this is one of the more lopsided polls you'll see. One player is heading in the wrong direction, the other is playing better each year.

PHIL KESSEL.

Usually, I would look down upon these threads (the ones made by leaf fans) because it seems like they need a boost to their ego.

But the exception is that Kessel was constantly condescended upon by HF in comparison to Bobby Ryan for years. Same way Kadri was put down upon by HF's glory child, MP5. Those people would never admit their mistake, but suffice to say, I'm going to make an exception and say this thread is indeed, thread-worthy.

PK, and it's always been PK. Ryan was one of the most overrated over hyped players in the world 2 seasons ago.

Perry vs Kessel would have been a better poll.

I do like both players, but there's just something about each of them that worries me. They both seem like players you can't count on to score when the game gets tougher and are very inconsistant. They pretty much remind me of Jeff Carter when he was on the Flyers, but not as big of chokers as he was. Not saying either of them are chokers, especially Kessel, but they just aren't "go to guys" so to say. just my 02. I'd still take either of them over majority of the wingers on the flyers now, hopefully we actually do get Ryan this offseason

Kessel is nearly a point or game in the playoffs, lead the team in goals and second in point behind JVR. He also was on a ridiculous pace leading up to the playoffs

Kinda funny he started so hot last year (10G 8A in 10gp) and started so cold this year (0G in first 10GP), but Kessel ended this year almost identically to the way he started last year (10G 7A in his last 10GP iirc)


On the poll, Kessel AINEC- but you could probably tell from my username.

Also: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UV_xxPGIXA

That will be all.

Has it really been 123 goals as a Leaf?

The same Jeff Carter who's won a World Junior Gold Medal an AHL championship and a Stanley Cup? Yeah I'd take that "choker" on my team any day.

Kessel has been a top-10 or so forward these last two seasons, and is a year younger. I take Kessel easily.
