Kesler looking to return tomorrow

Maybe he's just trolling the media, then make a suprise appearance tommorow.

Took a nap for a couple hours and woke up with some big news, wasn't expecting this one at all.

I think he was just being precautious and modest during his interview, like waiting for the coach to give him the go. Moments later, he got the go during AVs interview. I don't know, I may be misunderstanding things.

We are doing really well without him, no need to rush him, altough PP needs his help. I can see AV limiting his minutes to PP and ES, give him 15 minutes and get Kesler going little by little.

Is it really smart to put him in this soon?

Wasn't he just cleared for contact like a week ago?

Hmm... Not entirely sure how to feel about this. Can't say I've kept super up to date with his recent recovery, but I still think there's no rush yet. Isn't it VERY recently he's practiced and he even said the strength isn't there.

If he's not 100%, no one will be happy.

Kassian has shown himself to be an incredible playmaker and he is not a cherry picker and will pass the puck. Higgins is not the best passer, but he is far from the puck hog Kesler is. And Kesler is not supposed to pass the puck, he is supposed to bury it in the back of the net. Its what he does, and he does it well.

Really? What shows you that? His 2 Assists while getting ice time with the Sedins and PP?

Or are you just impressed with the last assist he got vs Minny and think he's an incredible play maker just because of 1 play?

Kesler can dominate a game if he so chooses...the only problem is that his reckless all out play can make him injury prone...Like a lot of folks have said here already..what's the rush?

The silver lining behind the news about Manny I guess

Kesler hasn't been 100% in a long time. Hopefully he has had all this injuries taken care of.

Actually I think he is right. The one thing I am very surprised and impressed with is his passing skills and his awareness of where everyone else is on the ice.

He has a lot of work to do to figure out where he is supposed to be without the puck as he sometimes looks lost, but watch his passing the next couple of games. It is excellent. It doesn't always translate into assists of course.

His last year of junior he got 51 assists in 56 games so that is a pretty decent sample size to work from.

Maybe the reason the whole Malhotra situation is happening now because Kesler is actually 100% and ready to go?

Could've just kept calling it "personal days" until Kesler was 100%...

I believe when he was first traded here he was asked what kind of player he was and he said even though he was a big guy and liked to score goals, he considered himself a play maker and that his passing skills are always something that gets pverlooked

Can't remember where I read that though

Pretty sure he might have mentioned that in a between period interview.

His hero was Big Bert. The comparison isnt too far off. Bert in his productive times here, was a sublime passer/playmaker.
