I really would put Kassian back with the twins because we need him contributing. We have too much talent to be running around headless like we were for most of last night. I suspect it will take a few games yet to get both Kesler and Booth settled into the line up. But it shouldn't take that long.
Defensively we are just so disorganized out there. Maybe time for a new defensive coach? Maybe the plan is to let Edler play the R side all season in hopes that come the playoffs he will have figured it out. Garrison, has gone the way of Ballard. It seems like new D to this team take a couple of seasons to figure it out with us. I don'n know why.
And RD, I like the new you. Hopefully we will get a glimpse of the old you every now and then to keep us all honest.

yeah, we need Kesler to be a monster again. This team was at it's best when he was on, gave the other team fits in line matching. I have no problem with the Sedins game right now, although I don't think they are as dominant as they were a couple seasons ago in that Cup run season etc. It was a Kesler where it didn't matter who he was playing with, his line rolled but now, not sure if it's this seemingly problem of trying to find the right chemistry in line-mates for him to play with. Booth and Kesler do not click, there is no sustained pressure with those two, cause they can't seemingly sustain the play in the offensive zone, this may be due to Booth not being a puck possession player and all he wants to do is put the Taylor Hall blinders on and try to drive through 3 opposing players to the net. I think the 2nd line woes has more to do with Kesler than his linemates. Kes needs to get back on top of his game. He is paid too much and knows what to do to have to sit and wait for his arrival throwing the excuse book at him. The time is now!
Right now Garrison looks to be way overpaid! If you are making those kinds of bucks you best damn well start showing why you are being paid those kind of bucks. That's near elite player dough he is getting.

Imagine how many games Hansen would have been suspended if he had smashed Hossa's head into the turnbuckle glass WWF Shea Weber style...
