The fact that he went exactly where he was projected to go clearly means nothing because the scouts are always wrong. I mean really, it's been a whole year and half, we can definitely already tell that Kesler went too high. Forget the whole "5 year projection" thing, that's hogwash. Heck, many Canuck fans knew right away that they should have taken Tambellini instead.
It was dumb of you to use Tambellini as your example. He is doing relatively unimpressively at the NCAA. Kesler, two years ago, scored 31 points in 41 NCAA games while Tambellini only has 27 points in 39 games.

Kesler is one of the top 20 scorers in the AHL and everything else imaginable.

You lack a knowledge of both Kesler and the truth.
