Kesler Severely Over-Rated- Do We Really Want Him?

205 posts in this topic

Is it only me who finds it annoying that if you critisize a player on the team almost everyone will call the poster band wagooner or only post a face palm. I thought the poiny of the forum is to share your opinion on the team.

And regarding Keslers play, he hasn't been the same as he waa his Selke season, but he has been having injury problems, give him some time. If he doesn't come back to his game maybe the Canucks management should consider trading him.

It ain't gonna happen but Kesler would better fit as canucks 3rd line centre. Trade schneider ++ for someone like N. backstrom from Washington.

I agree the one 40 goal season was an anomaly, it's difficult to put up those type of number year after year. Perhaps that one year raised fan expectations too much. Having said that he's still a very good secondary scorer, and good in all situations especially defensive. He's still one of our best players, even if he's not sniping 40 goals a year.

Is that right? The whole six games he's been back? Imagin that. Oh he's also got 4 points in those six games big guy.

People said the exact same thing about Daniel Sedin when he came back from his injury a couple years ago. And how did that turn out? It took Daniel 10 games to start playing even remotely well. Then he went on to almost tie his brother in points ( who won the art Ross that year)

He had one stellar season which he'll never reach again and everyone presumed that he'll be doing that EVERY year, so in that aspect yeah sure he's overrated.

once again we have arguments between real vancouver fans that are not blind vs the vancouver cheerleaders ... real vancouver fan puts up a good post and the cheerleaders have a hard time facing facts or even replying with facts so they resort to face palming and insults really shows how intelligent the cheerleaders are.

He was brutal last season too guys , not just this season.

He's also made of glass if you're all going to say "but he was injured "

Well he always seems to be injured then

yep. he thinks he's some big time 40 goal sniper nowadays but thats not how he should be playing, needs to use his linemates and not go for the wristshot every ???? time he crosses the blue line

My God, do we have to be subjected to this every loss?

I guarantee you don't want to be playing against Kes.

And he's just come off not one but two surgeries...how about letting him work out the kinks first before deciding? I remember people doing this to Bieksa too right after his calf laceration(s), etc.

He's always coming off an injury it seems so what else do we have to judge him by? Was his entire seasons last year a pass because he came off hip surgery? It's the same thing year after year, in seeing the same Kesler that is playing bad hockey for what his contract states

are you kidding me? are you actually suggesting one player cannot play better than another?

wow. perhaps the OP posted this in frustration to the canucks loss, but that is irrelevant. anyone who has an objective hockey sense has had this formulation of kesler for a while.

Did you see Kesler last season? Same crap. He's changed his game and clearly it's been for the worse. He looks nowhere near as dominant defensively anymore and his not passing shoot into the shin pads routine is getting annoying.
