HE WAS TRIED ON THE WING FOR MORE THAN ONE STINT. IT WAS A FAILURE EVERY TIME. WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP BRINGING THIS UP AS AN OPTION.
Or he actually doesn't play wing, just lines up there while Kes takes faceoffs and then they switch. If you don't like a thread, feel free to remove yourself from it.
Kesler is actually a capable playmaker himself if he'll just start passing the puck again. In 09/10 he had 50 assists and everybody on that second line had a career year.
He's not bad, but Schroeder's better and it'd allow Kesler to utilize his shot. Kesler/Booth hasn't exactly generated fantastic chemistry, where I think having someone like Schroeder with them (or with Kesler/Burrows more likely) would free them up to worry about the rest of their game.
I like the idea of Schroeder on the 2nd line wing; he has speed, is probably our best playmaker after the Sedins and we've long wished for someone to compliment the shoot first style of the others that have been on our second line.
