I think Tom can be an absolute beast, especially with a very offensive team like Vancouver. I think AV is making a huge mistake putting him on the 4th line, put him on the 1st with the sedins and infront of the net on our 1st PP unit and he will easily be a 40-50 goal scorer with tap ins a lone. He is a bigger version of Dustin Byfuglien and has shown that he can put the puck in the net.
If he sticks around (dont know why he wouldn't) I think he could be in the rocket Richard race. Philly is stupid, HUGE steal by the Canucks. GMMG does it again!

I see what you're trying to do but it's not really funny.



Maybe next time?

Kesler was lucky to score 20 this year since the injury to Morrison allowed him to do so.

I doubt Kesler would ever break 15 goals in his career again.

Don't know why your laughing. He's bigger then Lindros, and if AV uses him right he'll be a hell of a lot better

If by 'Next Eric Lindros,' you mean the post-concussion, head-trauma victim who drools into the chin-strap of his everyday safety helmet thanks to Scott Stevens, then, yes, Sestito could be him.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I can't imagine this won't be locked shortly - seeing that there's another Sestito thread 4 below this gem.

Also I would like to point out his last name, Sestito, has 2 letter s' in it. Its proven that players with 2 s' in their last name are 80+ point producers for example: SedinS, croSSby, etc

He's not bigger than Byfglien, might be taller, that's it. He's no Lindros either, he's an enforcer who skates well.
The real problem here is AV, many of his player choices leave a lot of us scratching our heads.

What stands out is how confident he is with the puck. Even with 2 guys on him he rarely panic. Once he improves his passing he can indeed be a Lindros / Bertuzzi type of player, to a lessor extend.

The NHL is a fixed old boys club. I've come to acceptance with that and just watch for entertainment. The 2011 & 2012 Canucks are champs in my books. Go Canucks Go!

Seriously. Stay in school too.

You can dress a troll up and make it pretty by being positive instead of negative, but it's still a troll.

Don't know why you're accusing of being a troll, i'm just saying to utilize Sestito's assets, put him infront of the net, and allow him to use his cannon and he can have Lindros-like numbers. No denying that
