Just so you're aware, he's outscoring Brassard by a whopping 3 whole points this year.
Kesler is not the answer here. We need long-term solutions. Getting rid of Cally and trading the farm for Kesler or Spezza or someone of the like is counter-intuitive and more of the same old.
Bring in young blood or don't make moves. Easy as that. I'm sick of this being a retirement home for older players to have fun, eat well, make good money and mack hot women.
St. Louis wants to come here to ****ing retire. That's pathetic. I want this team young and hungry. These geezers who want 6 million to come and play for us and not stay healthy can go do that **** in Buffalo.
Young blood or bust. No more deteriorated has beens.
Seriously, Kesler is a fine player, but do people actually watch him, at all? This guy isn't a commanding #1C. He's a shell #2 at best. He's on par with Brassard and Stepan but is better at faceoffs.
I'm not paying a 1st rounder AND Callahan for a guy who has a few more intangibles then our younger and healthier center in Brassard.
I agree with most, but I don't understand your point on St. Louis. The guy is productive and plays much younger than he is. He would also be a huge influence on our younger players. If he doesn't get traded here, I bet he signs a Naslund-esque deal in a couple of years.
