The reason Kesler always plays hurt is because we use him way too much in situations where guys are likely to get injured. We need another guy that can play tough minutes 5 on 5 and not get destroyed. The guy was playing over 20 minutes in meaningless games down the stretch last year despite carrying two injures, it makes no sense at all. This year, 2nd game back - boom 22 minutes including SH time. The guy was hurt again before he even managed to adjust to the speed of the game.
When your entire 2nd line production is on the shoulder of 1 player, who is the C.

Clearly you need better wingers.

Wasn't it obvious after the cup run, and even Gillis himself promised Kesler to bring him a player to form a duo?

This is exactly why we need another legit offensive player.
