    This is a tough one for me. Obviously Kessel is having the better season right now, but my gut says go with Seguin. I think his skating and work ethic are going to get him to the point where in a year or two it's Seguin hands down. Kessel just hasn't seemed to show that consistency, but then again, I don't have a true basis for Seguin, either. I honestly think Kessel is the more logical choice, but somehow Seguin is the sexier one. Yet, I think the sexier choice will actually be the right choice here long-term. I really like where Boston is cap-wise and I think they'll find a way to get some serious consistent scoring from a top line with Seguin on it.

    Seguin for me and really it isn't even close. I do think Kessel can be a consistent 35-40 goal, 75-80 point player.....but Seguin will just be better long-term. It's not necessarily that I don't like Kessel, I just like Seguin more.

    I don't think any of the 4 this time were a hard choice. All 4 leaders should be it. Benn and Kopitar was the closest and I still have to go with Benn even with Points only. Kopitar has reached his plateau and Benn is still going up.

    Seguin for me in a heart beat and as a leaf fan I would personally carry Kessel all the way to Boston in order to trade them for each other (never mind, Knight and Hamilton).
