Solid 3rd liner, that can play his ass off until Kesler returns.
With hearing Kesler's progression I think that he may be underused in the near future, but I am coming around to the idea. I would put him on the third line, but also put him out for defensive zone draws with Malhotra to ensure a good chance at getting it out. I know that this is a Kessel thread, but the Canucks lineup would look like....

Sedin Sedin Burrows
Kessel Kesler Booth
Schroeder Bozak Raymond
Higgins Lapierre Hansen

Although I would expect that Schroeder would be sent down to the AHL Higgins moved up and Malhotra being in that last spot (maybe Weise/Volpatti if we expected a rough game).
