As for his other actions, he's on his own there. But I would give him a full summer to get ready for next season to see where he's really at.

Keslers two biggest weapons, skating and shot are a function of core strength. This means he has to maintain or improve this area of his body in the off season.
He couldn't, he therefore didn't and we see what we see now.
Not to mention the fact that his cardio, leg strength blah blah blah is lacking due to an inability to work out.
But let's take him out and shoot him....
