Are you seriously trying to say that Kesler should be a third line centre and somehow he still gets 20 minutes a game?
What do you mean stop being sucked into the numbers attached to the line.... it's there for a reason. There's 60 minutes in a game. Explain to me how you give third line 20 minutes a game.
Or... do you just mean that Kesler should play 20 minutes a game, but we will just "call" it the third line? Ok. call it 4th line for all i care.
I'm saying that he WILL play 20min a game no matter what his role is five on five. The only reason he'd be considered a third line center is if he's playing a shut down role but he's still going to get the minutes. There's no reason to worry about him taking the third line if that turns out to be what AV decides. Schroeder could potentially take the offensive responsibilities five on five (and give us a good set up man on our second PP which we have been seriously lacking) but will still leave a huge amount of responsibility for Kesler to shoulder. Third line does not mean reduced minutes, especially if he's playing top PP and PK minutes.
