Kenpachi will win because he's Zaraki Kenpachi and because of not because of an argument as weak as yours. Previous captains of the eleventh division had used their shikai/bankai, if that's what you mean. The members shikai/bankai usually are for melee/close-combat, but that's it. At least there won't be anyone deserting in his div..

I guess everybody agrees that Kenpachi can defeat Sternritter members but what about the strong ones? Will Kenpachi fight one of the strongest ones and defeat him or will Kubo match him up with one of the weaker ones because he's not quite there yet?
If he's not there yet, than when will it be? He will probably play the eye-patch game again. Could see a Sternenritter sucking up his energy somehow, but will deem him weak because only got so little, than Kenpachi will butcher him up seeking for stronger opponents.
Than latter at the end of the manga he will use the power Kubo has addmited him to have due to the new novel.

How do we know Kenpachi hasn't learned bankai yet? We just had a short timeskip and that is open to possibilities.
I personally believe kenpachi will get his ass handed. if these quincy that enter SS are as strong as the one ichigo is fighting then all captains besides Yama are going to have extreme problems.
Ichigo in His Shikai Form is probably at the lvl of Byakuya with his Bankai.
My prediction is All the Captains besides Kyouraku,Ukitake, unohana will lose and Yama will Release his Bankai and use his strongest Technique and obliterate all of the quincys but also Sacrificing himself. Yama's Death will bring in the Royal Guards into Action. Or at the last moment Aizen SHows up as a trump card, uses his bankai, the Quincys wont be able to steal it due to the Hyougoku, and if kyouka suigetsu was the most hax ability imagine his bankai, Aizen will take all captains to a secret place to regroup Etc.

It wouldn't make sense for the captain commander to use his bankai IMO, as it was hinted on that it's far to destructive. The war would be lost anyway with the Gotei 13 destroyed because of collateral damage.
I can see how Ichigo's reiatsu output would be as big as with Byakuyas in bankai mode, but just as strong? When did he become a minor and weak character like that? Is there anything to support that assumption?

Well he effortlessly killed a fullbringer with one hit, I think he doesn't need a bankai to handle a quincy.
He is probably going to kill of some medium-ranked Quincy who gets scared when he realizes Kenpachi isn't using his Bankai to fight.
kenpachi is like the hulk of bleach , just raw power , while the more angrier hulk gets the more stronger he becomes and use a simple hulk smash as a finisher while kenpachi is the longer the fight drags on the stronger he becomes and a simple kendo as the killing move
It's not certain who Kenpachi faces off against out of the Stern Ritters. he may face one of the stronger ones or one of the weaker ones. Imo, it all depends on match-ups. Kubo has been playing the match-up cards for some extended period of time now. In fact the Espada matches and the Fullbring matches were all cases of who to match-up with who, whether it be personality wise or strength. But the leading title of the thread is misleading. Of course Zaraki can handle a Sternritter. He doesn't fight with special abilities or techniques anyway. Just pure "Raw Power".
You guys are giving kenpachi to much credit, these quincy arent playing around like the espada were. Look at what happen to Kyouraku, 1slip and he almost had his head blown off. and this is the guy that faught head on with the 1st espada without getting much of an injury.
Kenpachi will likely fight the leader of the quincys that enter SS besides the King. And Kenpachi will without a doubt lose Very badly. Kenpachi Has yet understood the pain of uber defeat. and the quincys will give him that.
Special fights, special conditions, you really shouldn't compare his shadow trick fight to Kenpachi's "normal" swordfight. WTF is an "uber" defeat?XD If he loses, he will die and he won't die IMO. If the translation is right[the once of the novel], Kubo confirmed that he's about the same power level as Ichigo.
