Come on guys, leave it alone. No need to rehash it in every topic he starts.

His credibility is already wrecked, no need to embarass him every time

I kinda expect the locked-out league schedule to be started on January anyway.

Good I want him to come back when he's 100% so he doesn't reinjure himself like a fool again

Rather have him healed up 100% rather than rush back and then make excuses for why he didn't play well. Plus this creates an opportunity for someone else to take over the 2nd line C spot

Guess Kesler realizes he doesn't need to rush back as Hodgson has no chance of taking his #2 spot.

That is good to hear. I would rather have Kesler back when he is 100% than have him play sub par and get injured again.

Besides players that come back early to help the team are trashed by CDC (see Bieksa and Ballard)....why would any player want to return under those circumstances.

If Vancouver is going to make a big splash in the playoffs, they at least need a healthy team going in.....no more rushing players back too early. We have some prospects in Chicago who are ready for some game experience so give them the chance instead of rushing out and signing a veteran who is rapidly on the decline. As long as we are not in danger of missing the playoffs, give guys like Schroeder, Connaughton, Jensen etc a chance to gain some valuable development time and experience. We will be a better team down the road because of it.

He'll be on the IRL, so we can always sign Doan and Arnott, trade Luongo shortly after.. Then trade Raymond before Kes comes back December. It will all work out, don't worry my fellow fans. :P

Don't worry the excuses will still come, that's something you can count on for sure.

But if you look for truthfulness

You might just as well be blind.

It always seems to be so hard to give.

Honesty is such a lonely word.

Everyone is so untrue.

Honesty is hardly ever heard.

And mostly what I need from you.

So he'll likely play 60 games, put up 20 goals and 40 points. That's at least 10 goals and 20 points that need replacing in 2 months across our forwards, so we'll need another center.

I have a feeling that this may just be a way to regain some leverage in a possible Luongo trade. If we sign Doan, that would put us over the cap. Being over the cap and needing to shed salary gives advantage to other teams in trade duscussions. Going on record and saying Kesler will not be back before December (even if it isn't true) automatically gives the impression of LTIR cap relief, therefore we wouldn't "need" to have him traded before the season starts, keeping us in a position of strength in trade talks

In October and November (assuming Luongo is still on the roster and we sign both Doan and Arnott):

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows

Booth - Arnott - Doan

Higgins - Lapierre - Hansen

Raymond - Malhotra - Kassian

Weise - Ebbett - Pinizzotto*

Edler - Garrison

Hamhuis - Bieksa

Ballard - Tanev

Schneider

Luongo

In December forwards (assuming Luongo is still on the roster and we sign both Doan and Arnott):

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows

Booth - Kesler - Doan

Higgins - Arnott - Hansen

Lapierre - Malhotra - Kassian

Raymond - Ebbett - Pinizzotto*

Weise*

Edler - Garrison

Hamhuis - Bieksa

Ballard - Tanev

Schneider

Luongo

That would be the best roster the team has ever iced and I would feel comfortable riding a tandem where both goalies play 41 games with. In the playoffs, ride the hot hand. (Not possible due to cap, though) :towel:

* = extra forwards

Hopefully, Kesler sits out until he is %100 ready to play.

healthy Kesler > injured Kesler

You are a fool. Where's the cap space for Doan, Arnott and Luongo? Most people like you live in lala land.

Oh Gillis, just had to jump the gun on Cody didn't you, trading Cody has done nothing positive for this team yet, it has been negative, and now it's kicking you in the butt even more LOL serves you right.

Don't worry, Kassian has been vying for the 2nd line center position. Just ask his dad...
