Is Kesler ever 100%?

It seem like if he's not playing well, people will use Kesler's injury as an excuse.

I hate to say this, but I hope he was not 100% (not wishing bad on him or anything). If he wasn't, then maybe he can recondition, recuperate and refocus on next year
It only takes one hard fought series to make a rivalry

1. I saw him passing a lot in this series and not taking the puck himself except when necessary.
2. This is stupid. The goal that won us game 3, who was screening Quick on that shot? That's right, Kesler. Like I said, even if he's not scoring he does everything else on the ice and he does it better than anyone else on the team.
3. I saw one embellishment after the Kings embellished, so I wasn't mad at that at all.
4. Kesler is our best forward in the defensive zone and was in this series too, I don't know what you're watching. He always backchecks hard and with speed.

Without Kesler the Canucks lose any dynamism the team has (which isn't a lot to begin with). You're all crazy, honestly.


Ok, i'll bite.

1) I saw the passing different than you, and not enough time in my day to play by play each game video.
2) We didn't win game 3, I assume you mean game 4. And, you must be talking about the slapper from Edler. Yes, he was screening, and that certainly made the goal possible, but he was also -1 for the night. BTW, that was the tying goal, not the winning goal. He was not on the ice for the winning goal, for that goal, on ice was 7, 22, 33, 23, 3
3) One embellishment? That whole "shaft of the stick in the face" while going by Quick was awful. It set the tone for the refs, and probably cost us calls in that game.
4) Yes, he kills penalties fearlessly. But we didn't lose because too many goals went in, we lost because of a lack of offence.

Once again, I repeat, I am not advocating his trade, but the first reply was to the Captaincy and the adjectives used to describe him.

Heres hoping we actually see "beast mode" next year.
Sig too big.

NTC starts next season so now is the time to shop him around and listen to some offers.

See, I think this is the wrong approach. Get him someone to play with, specifically a right winger. I see promise in Booth with the Sedins, Burrows with Kes, but they either need a right winger OR a natural two way center. No, Hodgson probably wasn't the answer, but maybe a guy like Nik Antropov, Brooks Laich, or Paul Gaustad

BTW, Semin is UFA, might not be a bad fit.
