I remember on his draft day and the bio they showed of him mentioned how he had to overcome some kind of sickness when he was young.

They also showed how he was training with parachutes in the field, and is a very strong skater.

Really wanted the canucks to draft him that year, so its nice we eventually got him.
And of course both those players you mentioned got injured, and the rest is history.

I agree with you. Kesler and Hamhuis will again be our backbone and if they are 100% healthy and playing full force, we can do serious damage this year.
