Would It Hurt More To Lose Kesler Or Henrik This Season?

40 posts in this topic

Had we been missing Henrik Sedin all season, instead of Ryan Kesler, would we be better or worse than we are right now?

So, as we know, we are 13-9-6 on the season.

Henrik has put up 27 points in 28 games (solid production).

(random generated lineup).

Raymond Kesler Higgins

Sedin Schroeder Burrows

Hansen Lapierre Kassian

Weise Ebbett Pinnizzotto

The teams pretty used to playing without Kesler or without Kesler being effective so isn't it an obvious answer.

Henrik, because that would mean we now have no first line.

As it is now:

Line 1

Line 3

Line 4a

Line 4b

Take Hernik out, and it's now:

Line 2

Line 3

Line 4a

Line 4b

Worse. Way worse.

Hank leads the team in points (tied with Daniel for the lead in goals, leads the team in assists) and incredibly is a +16 on the season, despite the awful defense and goaltending we've seen lately. Kesler, while he would make a bigger impact defensively and physically, does not do as much for the team overall as Hank does.

Hank is playing like an MVP again, we lose him and we don't make the playoffs, with or without Kesler in the lineup, it doesn't matter.

Henrik Sedin is the most important player on the team without question and he is having an amazing season. Take him out and this team is in the Seth Jones hunt. Maybe the emotion of losing him carries them for a while but you don't lose a player like that and survive. I used to think Daniel was better and maybe he can score more but Henrik is doing so much this year.

Henrik is the Canucks. No disrespect to Daniel but we've seen what the Canucks are without Daniel, Without kesler. We haven't seen the Canucks without Henrik and that my friends will be the worse nightmare you could ever think of.

When Henrik goes, we go.

Easy math

Henrik has 27pts in 28gp

Kesler has 5pts in 7gp x that by four to make the same 28 and it is 20pts in 28gp

Henrik more points than kesler would have had.

Losing Henrik would have this team trying to play a game they have not had to play in what... 8 seasons?

Losing a player who has been on your roster every single game for that many seasons would severely hamper the team, even with Kesler in the lineup.

Henrik is the best player on this team. We wouldn't be able to bandage a loss like him. Kesler hasn't played that well since 2011.

Losing Henrik would be more devastating.

Not only in regards to the points he produces but it might hurt Daniel's production too.
