Our friend @DTeam1040 thinks Ryan Kesler could return as early as Saturday. Looked great at practice today according to DT


This is what Sekeres heard from Canucks color commentator Dave Tomlinson

Mmmmmm, what I said at the start of the season was that if Ryan was over embellishing his injury he would come back two weeks into the season as he couldn't come back at the start it would look a little suspicious. Three weeks is in the ballpark, it's something we will never know but makes you go hmmmmmmm. It will be great to have him back!!! Hope we can keep Schroeder in the lineup he's looking great.

Don't see how that's possible.

@benkuzma: Kesler: "The shoulder is a big thing. I have to make sure it's 100 per cent. The range of motion is there, but strength isn't there at all."


Strength is obviously a big factor, hopefully he isn't coming back to early like last year...
It did more harm then good.
We're 5-2-2, he can afford to stay out.

Please no. As good and amazing that it sounds to have Kesler back by Saturday, we don't need him to rush back into playing hockey. We've tried that twice and it has failed miserably. We need a healthy 100% Kesler so he can dominate again like he did in 2010-11. Not look like an overpaid 2nd liner who is playing terribly when he's not 100%

Certainly going to be our #1 defensemen. Give him a couple more years to improve his game and he'll be our new and improved version of Matthias Ohlund in no time

HIghly doubt this is true.

MG said on TEAM 1040 yesterday or today that Ryan looks really good but has not been approved for full conact yet. Pretty unlikely he will play Saturday.

I read that he has been working out really hard even though he hasn't been able to be on the ice. I too hope they don't rush him back... but if they do, I'm guessing by what I read his strength shouldn't be an issue.

(With that said, I imagine it would take him a few games to get his timing back)

As much as i don't want to see him come back too early, it's not a bad spot in the schedule for it.

The Canucks have two days off after Calgary and another two days off after Minny. There are no back to back games until the 21st / 22nd.

If he comes back, what do we do with Schroeder? I really like his game. Hes earned a spot in my mind.

Whenever there's a Kesler injury thread, there's always a million people pointing out the obvious fact that he shouldn't rush back. I'm pretty sure the team gets it and if he's good to go on Saturday then he's good to go. If not then they'll wait.

He won't be back on Saturday. This is just the Team 1040 trying to create a buzz on a slow news day.

Kesler just returned to practice. You think they're going to slot him in after a couple practices and being out for 9 months? Not a chance.

If he's practicing with the team full time now, he should be back in a couple weeks. And that's fine by me.

Hopefully not. Take your time, Kes. Do not rush back into the lineup like you did last year.

Kes, just chill buddy! No need to rush. Even if you think you're ready, wait a bit longer just to be safe!

Well, when he does come back it will be a huge bonus!

A healthy Kesler is the physical beast that teams cannot match up against in a hockey sense. Teams have to play a big body on him, and still often lose that battle; and that body is no longer playing on the Twins who run rampant!

Would be such a massive boost to the powerplay and PK as well, good to see he's looking great in practice, was looking like he could be out for quite a while

I actually hope we don't use him on the pk this year. We have enough guys who are capable of playing that role.

Using him on the pk along with all the other stuff he does just wears him out and increases the chances of him getting injured shot blocking.

We should start a thread for Kesler like MayRayDown, except instead of counting his falls, we should count his dives

@benkuzma: Despite two good practices, shoulder strength still a major issue for #Canucks centre Ryan Kesler. http://t.co/7g0QbHiw

Best option is to wait, when it comes to an injury that's taken this long to heal, a couple more weeks cant hurt.

Give MG's interview from yesterday a listen. Kesler hasn't been cleared for full contact yet.



He talks about:

Why he was in Washington
The Lou/Corey situation
Liut's interview
Kesler's injury
The possibility of Schroeder sticking

Wait until we lose 2 games in a row and the world as we know it is coming to an end.

In comes in Booth and Kesler and save the day.

Agreed, there is no reason to rush him back while we are doing ok. If we were tanking early I could understand rushing him back but with the way we are playing there is no need to rush him back if he's not 100%.

Hopefully his first game back is against the Jackets or something so we can ease him back into the lineup, instead of against a rival who will try to hit him every chance they get.

Umberger's on that team, and Kesler and him aren't on the best of terms.
