Evander Kane's historical comparables

Remember the series of historical comparables we did early this season? Well, we're developing a new historical comparable system, and we need your help.

We've chosen some random players, and below are the results of several different systems that find statistically comparable players throughout history, and new variants of those systems. Turns out one of the random target players chosen is a Winnipeg Jet, and who would know him better than the loyal readers of Arctic Ice Hockey?


Please note this is based on his statistics going into this season, and does NOT include 2011-12 performance. And the obvious: the comparables are meant to match the target player at equivalent points of their own careers.

So today's Question: How well does each group of players match Evander Kane?

System 1: Sam Gagner, Kirk Muller, Radek Dvorak

System 2: Wayne Merrick, Stephane Richer, Justin Williams, Eric Nesteranko, Jordan Staal, Corey Perry, David Nemirovsky, Alexei Kovalev, Adam Deadmarsh, Patrick Poulin

System 3: Wayne Merrick, Justin Williams, Jordan Staal, Stephane Richer, Alexei Kovalev, Tom McCarthy, Adam Deadmarsh, Jim Fox, David Nemirovsky, Jeff O'Neill

System 4: Wayne Merrick, Corey Perry, Rick Vaive, Lanny McDonald, Doug Shedden, Bobby Holik, Sam Gagner, Duane Sutter, Tom McCarthy, Mikael Frolik

System 5: Mikael Frolik, Tom McCarthy, Blair Chapman, Duane Sutter, Scott Mellanby, Phil Kessel, Rick Vaive, Garry Unger, Jim Fox, Kevin Lavallee
