I like Kesler at a 3rd line center position. Look how pittsburgh is built. Deep down the middle. Surrounded by decent wingers. Thats how we should be built. Should of got a 2nd line winger for Roy. Now thats a proper forward core.
I always wanted to see Kesler play on the Twins wing when we had Hodgson (and Manny)?
With the Roy signing and Schroeder starting to look like an NHLer and given Burroughs, Raymond and Higgins are all capable of playing Centre there is absolutely no reason to play Kesler at Centre. He is simply not a "natural" centre......his first instincts are always to shoot rather than pass and he would be much better along the boards. Forward Line up should be:
Sedin, Sedin and Burrows
Higgins, Roy and Hansen (*)
Raymond, Schroeder, Kesler (*)
Pinnizzoto, LaPierre, Weise
