So lets see how the team plays when Kesler is back, what the lines look like and then we can worry about Booth. He may get third line with JS, someone who will pass to him. Higgins drops down to the 4th and Raymond gets second line with Kesler and Kassian. Who knows.

WIN IT FOR MANNY!!!
So pretty much the Canucks HAVE to win the Cup this year for Manny, otherwise they are a bunch of jerks

Then onto AV talking about Kesler........why didn't he name Kesler as his starting goaltender just to fuck with the media?

Todd Bersnoozi wrote:Yeah, does seem like he's being pushed out a bit. After playing like 100 games since the injury, now they think he's a risk to get himself injured? It doesn't make a lot of sense. What makes Gillis an expert to say a player is a risk to himself? If the doctors clears a guy to play and the player feels he's ready to play, it should be ultimately up to the player. The fact that Manny hasn't spoken to the media says alot and he must be pissed. Manny probably still thinks he can play, otherwise he wouldn't have worked out hard in the off season and spent all that time dicking around with the NHLPA negotiating committee. Also, it just seems really convenient to shut Manny down just when Kes is coming back and Schroeder seems to be emerging as an NHL player.
I think Manny would request a trade or ask to be put on waivers, but his wife just gave birth and he probably doesn't want to leave their side right now. I don't think we've seen the last of Manny. Come summer when he becomes a UFA, he's probably going to try to sign with another team.Rumsfeld wrote:Retirement or being pushed out, it's all in the eye of the beholder.
