Kesler 2.0 ?

19 posts in this topic

I really want to believe the Kesler we saw in the Predators series is going to show up. Hes completely healthy (hard to believe) and ready to explode. His presence in the lineup is more than enough but Kes firing on all cylinders is hard to stop. What kesler will show up? What do you guys think?

(side note: Has anyone found Mason Raymond?)

I don't find it hard to believe. If Kesler or Bieksa were not ready to play, they would of been sat vs. Oilers.

I'm hoping we get Tanev back soon. As for Booth, I could care less.

How many players are injured atm besides Tanev, Booth?

Kesler, asked about matching up against Logan Couture: "I’m not going to focus on their player. I’m going to make him focus on me."

A David Booth return would be huge! I would much rather have Booth on the 3rd line than Mason Raymond. Our bottom 6 could really solidify. Also Andrew EBBET wouldn't be in the lineup.

Replace Mayray with a guy with 1 empty net goal this season and 0 goals in the playoff. Van40 for coach everyone

Booth plays a physical game and takes the puck to the net. Mason Raymond spins and falls and disappears in the playoffs.

Both players are overpaid but Booth on the 3rd line is a better fit than Mason Raymond. Unless Raymond actually puts up points, hes useless. Booth may not score but he provides the intangibles.

The intangibles of being injured all the time? Raymond and Hansen on the third line provide world-class speed

Kesler is going to bring it, the issue is can he stay healthy.

As for Booth, I'd much prefer him on the 4th line with Lapierre than Ebbett if he were healthy.

Kesler when healthy is truly an effective player. Utterly useless when he's playing injured. Example is Boston and L.A last year. He just wasn't as quick when exploding his stride and not as physical. Besides blaming the Hamhius injury , I blame the fact Kesler was hurt for not winning the cup. If he was fully healthy, he would have been as equally effective and Patrice Bergeron. He would have reaked Havoc on the Boston Bruins. I really hope he is not injured, and fully 100% or else, it will be a downfall for the team.
