Is Kesler really that key? Of the 5 power plays, only two had legitimate chances. IMO we really do need Kes in front. Hansens good, but he's no scorer
Thoughts?

I'd go with Kass.
Twins, Kassian Edler and Garrison on first unit
Higgins, Burrows Hansen Bieksa and Hamhuis on the 2nd

Kesler is key to our PP, PK, and second line.

Yet idiots on these forum want to trade him because he had an injury. Sometimes this forum gets really pathetic.

Didn't Kesler get more PP goals than he did ES? If I recall correctly, Mason Raymond had more ES assists than Kesler did last season. Kesler lives or dies by the powerplay, and apparently so does Vancouver.

He had 13 ES goals and 8 PP goals last year so your first part is not accurate.

Kesler had 15 ES assists and Raymond had 10. Also not accurate.

Your point about Vancouver living and dying by the PP....very true and a big reason they struggle at times in the playoffs when other teams turn up the aggressive PK tactics.

It'll also be great once Booth is back so we have additional players that could slot in

Kesler is the engine that drives this team.

Without him they are just lacking in intensity.

Gah the lockout is messing with my memory.

I meant to refer to the 40-goal year where Kesler's PP dominance really emerged. Kesler had something like 15 PPGs, so no, more ES goals, but I'm not too sure about the assists. I do remember some talk on CDC about Raymond having more ES assists than Kesler did.

Thank you for the stats BTW.

Kass was really strong on the puck tonight along the boards in the Offensive zone, He can help grind out those powerplay goals when the skill plays just arn't quite clicking for the first 5-6 games. wish he had hit the open net on either of his other 2 scoring chances today and the one yesterday. Could have 4 goals this season already! Keep it up!
