I hope the coach is actively trying to play Kesler to help him catch-up to the pace of the game.
The guy has been on for 4 goals against 5 on 5 which obviously aren't all his fault but he has been guilty of not getting the puck out and missing chances to win possession when he normally would.
People are quick to blame the goalies and the defenseman, etc. but realistically Kesler has jumped back into our lineup, been thrown in hard and has not had a bunch of success. The goals he has been on for have cost us points in the standings.
Kes' goals against /60 is three times worse than any other forward on the team that hasn't been asked to semi-retire (and still worse than twice as bad as Manny's).
Kesler has now been on for more goals against 5 on 5 than any of our other natural centres (H. Sedin, Lapierre, Schroeder...and tied with Maholtra).
