Not once did I see him try a chip and chase all night.

Again, I'm not ragging on him because of what I noticed in the first paragraph because I attribute those to not being in game shape. I'm ragging on him because even from just coming off an injury, all his crappy habits that proved to be noneffective and counter productive are still here.

Kesler is at his best when he's shutting down the other team and playing a gritty, chip and chase, game. If Kesler wants to shoot, put him on the wing.
I'll just agree to disagree.
