If Kesler is gone for almost 2 months and in a 48 game season I don t see us making the playoffs this year.

You can have the best goaltending and defense but the Canucks problems the last few years in the playoffs has been our lack of scoring and it will be even worse this year without Kesler and Booth.

Edmonton and Minnesota in our division are definitely better than the previous years.

Gillis did not acccept a trade for Lou in the off season being too greedy..and this will come back to haunt him at the end of the year.


Its already been said in this thread but, Gillis said Kes will start skating with the team in the next 7-10 days.Not exactly sure how you get 2 months out of that

If we don't make the playoffs this year, there will be big pressure for the twins in their final year of contract.

I dont care how long it takes. a 100% Kesler is 100% better than making the playoffs in a short season. He better not rush his comeback because of team performance. Also, 2 games doesnt mean we wont make the playoffs. They need to adjust and rethink their current strategy as a team.

Ya but think if we could get at lest 3 solid forwards in a trade for lu and when booth and kesler come back. The canucks are going to have a wicked team.

Gillis did say last night in the 1st intermission that Kesler will be skating with the team in the next 7-10 days so i dont see how he will be missing the next 2 months. Sounded like he will be back before Booth will(according to MG).

Also you dont know what Gillis was offered because noone really does and if he feels it isnt going to help the team then good for gillis. You dont give a guy like Luongo away. So quit crying about it.


Interesting ... yeah know Raymond - Kesler - Kassian won't be that bad of a make shift 2nd line. Though I guess I would prefer Higgins - Kesler - Kassian but that would compromise the team's 3rd line.

laughable thread. Kesler coming back wont' help either unfortunately, he's been out for so long, no skating, no shooting. you think kesler will come back and we will win every game? Kesler??? no


Kesler on one leg and a blind fold on is still better than Ebbett. Besides, our whole team hasn't skated in months either and it shows.

This is the season to have 2 number 1 goalies on the roster, with the tight travel and large number of back-to-back games. That being said, if the right deal comes along we will deal Luongo, until then accept we have talent to fill the crease every night (despite the ugly start we have had.).

Again, trying to look at the positive, Kesler's return will be a bonus, when it happens. Until then, we hang in and try to make the push for the playoffs.

K guys I nd hlp fast. Im @ a girls I rly like & txtng from my iphone. I did a #2 in the bathroom and it plugged, water is almost overflowing toilet. Srsly I dunno wut 2 do somebody help!


Watch Bowness somehow mess up Tampa Bay's already amazing 2 powerplay units...he'll probably tell Stamkos to do drop passes from centre ice, take him out from the faceoff dot, and place him infront of the goalie :lol:

How do you know he was too greedy, do you have his line bugged? How do you know there were any meaningful offers at all?

It would take a collapse of monumental proportions for the Canucks to miss the playoffs. Although I find a loss and a shootout loss to be a poor way to start...i'm not willing to sell the entire season short (pun!) and place incredible pressure on Kesler to come back early just because we didn't steal the first couple games.

Let's wait till we drop 4 or 5 more in a row and then hit the panic button.

Kes is supposed to be back in February


I hope he's not rushed back just because we're down 0-1-1.

Not many can rival a healthy Kesler but Kesler of last January onwards was a travesty.
Cup run Kesler(before injured) carried this team or at least led this team while giving the team a valid second line to give the Sedins breathing room to operate.
Why he was not pulled out and forced into medical repair is beyond me.
The .org really looks bad regarding this whole ,stinking affair.
Not sure why the poke at Ebbett as Kesler beats all our center men at his game when healthy.
