Kes has been out for far too long and when he came back he wasn't playing at all to his potential.. Hopefully this time he is ready to go, because we are paying him 5 mil and so far he hasn't lived up to that contract. Before he got his extension he was on fire, now that he has it I just don't see the same urgency... Blame it on the injuries but he's had a nice long vacation, let's see if he's ready for business.

"It's an opportunity, we don't look at it as a last chance... We look at it as an opportunity to do something great. We are going to take it period by period, shift by shift. You just have to be better than the guy across from you... Every guy in this locker room I can say believes we can do this." - Ryan Kesler

Kesler automatically defines what the second line is.

Does the word "Shyte " come to mind ?

Good news, but we'll need more of it.

Not fair; Kess got 41 goals the year after he signed his last contract. And played lights out in Nashville, legless in the SCF.

Down; but I don't blame lack of character...

Kes has been out for far too long and when he came back he wasn't playing at all to his potential.. Hopefully this time he is ready to go, because we are paying him 5 mil and so far he hasn't lived up to that contract. Before he got his extension he was on fire, now that he has it I just don't see the same urgency... Blame it on the injuries but he's had a nice long vacation, let's see if he's ready for business.

Or win face offs

It's going to take at least a few games to get back into game shape, regain timing etc. Too much to ask him to be at 100% for a little while.
