Why all the frikin secrecy ??? It's a shoulder/wrist injury, not a concussion for chryst sake. Rather then waving your sticks at Center ice after the game, why not show some some respect to the fans, and give some honest updates as to when we can expect to see him back in line up/skating with team etc.

"Sooner than later" is the best you can do ??? He's being paid huge money, much of that coming from the fans ....is an occasional honest update too much to ask ??

How bout something from Kesler....who do you think is paying you 5 million a year ??

Gillis said in an interview at the intermission of Saturday's or Sunday's game (dont remember which one), that Kesler what already skating on his own, and he expected him to skate with the team within a week of two. And he said booth shortly after kesler.

Did you ever had an important injury? You can feel good for 3 days you think you'll be back in few days and the next morning you can feel so much pain, you think you'll never be 100% once again in your life.

There is only one thing I want about Kesler, knowing I'll be back on ice when he be at 100% to help our team to win, other than that, I want him to take all the time he think he need.

We have more than we think in common with ''Le Canadien de Montréal''

Both have logo shapped in ''C''

Canadien and Canucks mean the samething

We both hate the Boston Bruins now

Alain Vigneault coached both teams

Rogers Arena, Centre Bell, it's phones company

We are blue white and green they are blue white and red

Our #1 goalie is from Qc, their #1 goalie is from BC


But we have one important thing different and I hope it will change after the next season, we don't have Stanley Cup banner

Nickels, gillis has said before that they except booth back in a month or so, and kesler shouldn't be too much longer.

You can't give an exact date you stupid frack.

Wow are you dumb. Ever watched hockey before? Every played hockey? Ever had an injury? Ever had surgery? Do you know how to tie your shoes?

For the record he will officially be returning to action way sooner than he should be and he will require off season surgery in the summer of 2013.

As long as he's not rushed back. Would hate to see him come back a little early and reinjure himself. As for booth, well he will probably get hurt with something else once he's back anyway.

Oh for christ sakes it's not disrespectful for them not to release when he's returning.

You're not paying for Kesler either.

When it's your 5M then you can get real updates, until then piss off.

Hey OP. First of all, its not about us as fans. They have the right to protect their asset. They dont owe us anything.

Also, they dont want it to be public knowledge, for the other teams in the league. Some teams will go after a player who has a specific injury (why they dont say anything in the playoffs)

Which is what they did by saying sooner than later. It's all we need to know for now.

1. It is not your $5M. You pay for an entertainment service, but the company who provides that service is the one who is paying Kesler's salary.

2. Why is it important to know to an accurate (not exact extent) about when Kesler is going to return? We all want to know, or at least have an idea of when he could possibly return, but you're Demanding an answer .Why not just accept that he will be back when he is ready to return?

3. The return date is unpredictable, as Gillis made the mistake of stating return dates last year and got egg on his face when it was a mistaken date. You preach the desire for honesty, but you Already Assume that they are guilty of secrecy and dishonesty. How do you know they aren't stating the fact that they cannot predict these things?

4. Even if they are being secretive - stating exact return dates for injured players will weaken your trading position - critical when we're trying to deal with the Luongo issue. There would have to be a special reason to knowingly give out that information on a top player of your team when it is not necessary, and that everyone has been given an expected time table already anyway. This ridiculous demand, not desire, for greater accuracy is mind boggling.


This thread stinks of self-entitlement.

Bad news OP, he re-aggravated his injuries on Saturday while working as a bagboy at Save-On, and will be out another 6-8 weeks.

What I really like about injuries, especially long term injuries, is how it is really easy to predict exactly when a player will be recovered from them and ready to play...

lol I expect to see a lot of warning points given out for this topic. I got 1 for calling some one a dumb *expletive* <_<

"It's an opportunity, we don't look at it as a last chance... We look at it as an opportunity to do something great. We are going to take it period by period, shift by shift. You just have to be better than the guy across from you... Every guy in this locker room I can say believes we can do this." - Ryan Kesler

It also can affect any potential return on a Luongo trade.

Two games ago, MG said that he should be practicing with the team in 7-10 days. Then whenever doctors clear him. It's been said already, just pay attention
