Even a drunk supermodel is better...granted I didn't exactly track the ball very closely.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Back on topic, interesting to see Kesler's and Bonino's stats now that we're nearing the end of the season.

Code: Select all

Nick Bonino       GP     G 	 A   Pts   +/- 	PIM
2013-14    Anh 	77    22    27 	49 	14 	 22
2014-15    Van 	73    15    22 	37 	 5 	 22

Ryan Kesler       GP     G 	 A   Pts   +/- 	PIM
2013-14    Van 	77    25    18 	43   -15 	 81
2014-15    Anh 	79    20    27 	47 	-4 	 75
Bonino is no longer the 20 goal / 50 point player we were hoping for, and excluding 2012-13 that's Kesler's lowest goal total in a long time.

Good stuff Beard.

10 points less for $3+M less. Missing Kes in the faceoff circle though.

Also worth noting that while Kesler has been playing with real linemates, and seeing some top PP-unit time with the likes of Perry and Getzlaf, Bonino has been playing with guys like Chris Higgins for more than half the season. He's looked a bit better since Vrbata landed on the 2nd line to bolster its ranks.

Regardless, I think that we may have won that trade.....particularly if McCann develops as hoped.

Speaking of.....would McCann, who is already regarded to possess a solid two-way game, benefit more from his final year of junior eligibility, or would he be better served to make the Canucks roster a la Horvat?
