Canuck fans would be silly to think they even had this talk in 3 years time. Hodgson will by then be the Canucks captain, leading the team on the PP, PK and all crucial late game situations. This guy is Vancouver's next big star.

Kesler is just a very good defense forward, not much else. Only in Vancouver can 2 guys like Kesler and Burrows be considered untouchables.

I know the question is who would you rather keep, which implies a trade.. but this should be on the Canucks board or a Poll.

Keeps the sour patch kids away.

a very good defensive forward that proved he can score at close to a ppg clip playing on the wing of a good playmaker ( same with Burrows ). I'm pretty sure any team would consider them untouchable for a combined 3.7 mil cap hit.

Prorated: 42 goals and 82 points

I think there was some overachieving going on in the final 30 games.
I don't think anyone would argue Kesler over achieved through the final 30 games. But I also think playing in a limited offensive role for the first 50 games hurt his production. I think another ~ 60 point season is pretty reasonable for him.
