I wonder what people would say in those Kesler/Richards polls now...
Their 6-15 forward depth is hideous, too. 06-07 Canucks hideous. And Doughty's attitude has screamed "Neon Deon" to me since his rookie year.
Richards is having an okay year, but there isn't a forward in the entire NHL with Kesler's skillset. There just isn't. There are a few similar guys (Burrows, Koivu), but none with his physical skillset and absolute effort level. He doesn't always work smart but he always works hard.
Of course I got lambasted a lot for saying I didn't think there were 10 centres in the league I'd take before Kesler last season. There were a lot of Getzlafs on those lists...
