I'm actually more concerned about the Sedins possibly turning into Jason Allison (weak, slow as molasses powerplay specialists who are liabilities 5 on 5) than I am Kesler.

Given they are the same age right now as when Allison played his last season I don't think that's a concern you need to have.

And you know this how? The guy was a stick boy for the Oil as a kid and he played over 500 NHL games and you say that "he never had a passion for hockey"? I detect a whole lot of envy in this (and most of the other posts in this thread). Dissing a guy for retiring because of chronic injury is pretty classless, at least IMHO.

I just meant I'm worried they'll end up playing like that when they get up there in age. Not that they're in similar positions in their career.

I remember Jason Allison! Put up a PPG and nobody had any idea how. The Sedins are much, much better than him.
