Yep, Kesler is a beast and is our best player at the moment, by a wide margin. I'm also VERY impressed with Chris Higgins, he's doing everything asked of him and then some.

The potential injury to Henrik Sedin is very worrisome. The twins haven't played well lately, in fact they're playing their worst hockey of the season, but losing Henrik would be a death blow to this team.

One thing I noticed a few times last night was Rinne stopping a shot and holding onto it for a face-off - despite there not being any pressure on him. Last time I checked, that was a 2 minute minor, but I've lost all concept of what is and isn't a call these days.

I couldn't disagree more, is that what happened when Daniel went down? No, Last I looked this was a complete team with depth. Injuries are a part of it. If Henry goes down another will rise. Death Blow -heh That's what many predicted when we lost Manny.
Canuck fans can be so fickle some times... *shakes head*

Total use him and lose him though.

Yeah... that's a little scary. Losing the nexus is more than a tad worrisome.

If they're playing so worse how can it be a blow to the team anyway? :mrgreen:
No team should be screwed by missing one player if you have a real team going on.

Many predicted it when Kesler was drafted but in this playoffs it becomes evident, he's our true new #16+1 :towel:
