My thinking of late is Kesler would be best suited playing on a bang and crash line where garbage goals are the norm. Strangely, he looked pretty damn good last night for a shift or 2 with Tostito and Weezie. He doesn't really make that
good of use of his linemates either and his 40 foot wristers aren't going to beat many goalies not named Dubnyk. He's a power forward who drives the net, stands in through the punishment, deflects point shots and bangs home 2nd and 3rd chances. Oh and his speed on the forecheck is pretty damn good too
Don't get me wrong, I like Kesler and am not suggesting he be our 3rd or 4th line centre...it's just his game seems to be better suited to a more physical brand of hockey and some skilled banging wingers would help his game come back around.
Wonder what it would take to weasel Hartnell out of Philly...
