    Yes he is. He's always been a shoot-first player. Problem is we really need a 2C who can win face-offs.

    was not expecting Kesler with Henrik Sedin that's for sure. would really like to see Henrik and Daniel split up for at least a full game.

    Solid win. I hope torts keeps the kes-hank-higgins line intact for the next game as well. Schroeder and Kassian can also get some time on the second line when they are rolling.

    I know we're primarily concerned with offense, but I've been majorly impressed by the Sedins' effort on the defensive side of the puck. Outstanding play in the dying seconds by Daniel there.

    Seems that the added responsibility has re-focused them. Last year I was wincing every time they were out late with a lead.

    I wonder if we should put Schroeder with Kesler since he looked better with a(n elite) playmaker on his line.
     
  11. How did Kassian look? Wasn't able to keep my eye on the game for more than a minute at a time.

    Because Kesler has a long extensive track record of being weak on draws, right?

    It sounds crazy but...

    Higgins - Sedin - Kesler
    Sedin - Schroeder - Kassian
    Booth - Santorelli - Hansen
    Weise - Richardson - Dalpe/Sestito

    I agree. I still found it troubling that Kesler couldn't get anything going (I only started watching mid game) until he was put with one of the leagues best play maker.

    Kesler on the wing needs to be tried.

    Get Schroeder in the middle with Kesler on the wing.

    This may have been Kassian's best, or maybe 2nd best game this season!

    Tortorella puts the Sedins and Hamhuis on the ice for the final minute. Showing a lot of confidence.

    Great games from Henrik, Kesler, and Higgins. Have we found our new top line?

    Really didn't see too much of Kassian or Schroeder tonight.

    And Hamhuis has his best game of the season (ok, yeah, that's like saying "the least corrupt politician" but at least he didn't suck ...)

    Overall good win, let's get another one in Buffalo and then we can worry about beating good teams.

    I think it's virtually impossible to take anything you say about Kesler seriously.

    Agree about tryin him with Schroeder tho

    He's our best face-off man (really only good one) - when Maholtra wasn't on the team.

    We need offense. Face-offs are less important.

    There used to be a Hockey's Future rule to the effect that Kesler could never be allowed to take a shift on the wing because he'd won a Selke playing centre. I always thought it was a strange rule.

    Adding to that, he had a 76 percent ratio on the faceoffs aspect.

    You can always just have Kesler take the draws.
