    Yes, Kesler is the key to the Canucks' success. He elevates them from a decent team to a very good team just by being around. It would be nice if he had some help on the 2nd line though......
     
  2. Kesler is definitely not the key to the Canucks' success. The Sedin's are. And while they're still good, they're not 2010/11 good, and it's only going to get worse as they inevitably get older.

    In fact, I think that if this team gets a major shakeup, it'll be Kesler going the other way.

    This team sucks so bad,it'll take a complete overhaul to get it going again.

    Sedins are getting old and predictable,AV has to go ,his system sucks,Gillis has turned out to be a terrible GM,with no draft picks coming our way at all.

    We have the most porous defence in the league..........the only player that actually knows how to play his position is Tanev

    Booth,Lapierre,Higgins,Schroeder,Kesler,Ballard,Bieksa and Luongo should all be trade bait.

    I'm not worried, I'm just entering "gives no ****s-ville".

    As long as AV refuses to adjust to the new NHL style, this team will be fodder. Especially with injuries. And as long as AV apparently thinks Lapierre is a Top 9 player.

    I'm so tired of ****ing grinders getting promoted for no damn reason.

    Would you guys take Ryan O Reilly for Kesler?

    I wouldn't.

    Damaged broken Kesler still produces at the best that ROR has ever produced. I would have loved to have gotten ROR to play on the same team as Kesler.

    F that. O'Reilly "might" become as good as Kesler, and that's a big if, and he's already getting paid more. No thanks.

    If this were the case that would be immensely depressing. I however would say that this team thrives or dives by the Sedins.

    The Senators top 3 point gettters last year (Spezza, Karlsson, and Michalek) have been/are still out with injury this year (21, 11, and 10 games respectively) and yet they are in 6th place in the east.

    If this (our current play) is what happens when we lose our 4th and 6th best point getters (last year) then we should be thanking our lucky stars the Sedins are the Iron men they are because we would be absolutely and completely screwed.

    :(

    Kesler hasn't been healthy nearly enough to be a corollary to the team living or dying by him.

    This team is the Sedins and Co. Kesler is like the assistant manager of the company.
