    What makes you say that? He's outscoring him and Kane gets a good amount more ice time. Kane does have worse to work with. Kucherov was definitely better last season.

    And the season before that and the season before that Kane was better. It’s a toss up but I’ll go with the more proven player. Hard to say no to a hart and smythe winner

    This is likely kanes second best year. 15/16 was just something else entirely. He also had his 26 game point streak that year too.

    Seguin is pretty bad in the playoffs so.... sure. You're basically hoping he shows up in the lone 1 goal loss the Stars had that series.

    Kane and he's peaking right now. MVP of league with the way he's been playing lately.

    Kucherov is the better player.

    Kane peaked at 106 points a couple seasons ago. Incredibly impressive season.

    However, Kucherov is on pace for 126 points this year. A number Kane has not and will not likely ever approached. They're both skill guys who put up points. The proof is in the pudding.

    That 2016 season from Kane was insane, Especially considering he was nearly 20 points up on Benn who came in second. Kuch is on pace to have more points this year but scoring is way up and his lead isn't nearly as large as Kanes was

    You do know that Kane is only 4 points behind him right now, with 9 more goals and 30 games left of the season for things to change right?

    9 goals, 25 points in Kane's last 10 games. He is here to burn down your village and take your Art Ross.

    106 pts for Kane in that low scoring season is more impressive than 120 pts this season

    They are obviously not, however it is a point of comparison. Kane is 2nd in points and goals. Kucherov is 1st in points and 24th in goals. Take it how you want it.

    86% of Kucherov's even strength minutes this season he has played with one of Point or Stamkos. Kane has spent more time 5v5 with Strome and/or Anisimov than he has with Toews or Debrincat. The fact that he's producing like he is while putting his whole line on his back more than half the time on the ice is ridiculous.

    even if he finishes a couple points behind Kucherov this season, it's Kane 100%.
