I don't think it's a big deal if they get him playing soft minutes. What's important is that he can handle the type of minutes he's given and that was not the case with Hodgson a lot of the time.

He'd better not step foot on the ice until he's 100%.

No wonder his shot was pea shooter.

Let's hope he's learned from coming back too early this year.

So another offseason of not being able to train..

This guy's prime years are basically being wasted away by injuries. After hearing this, I really hope Gillis considers moving him. When he comes back in November he's going to be a step behind again because of no offseason working out or training camp, and it will be the exact same story as last season. Best thing for him and the team is to trade him so he can have success in a 3rd line role somewhere else where the pressure won't be on him to perform at a 2nd line C role, which I believe is beyond his ability as a player now.

Seriously?! They literally just took the exact same statement from last year and replaced hip with shoulder!

Problem is, as others have noted, he isn't often that healthy for the post-season (when the team really needs him). Probably has far too many responsibilities (which Gillis at least tried to address by acquiring Paulsson) that just wear his body down over the course of a long regular season.

But if he comes back after hes fully healed, what will his excuse be next season when he doesnt do well or gets shut down in a playoff series? Seems like every year we have to make excuses for losing.

Looking back on that, I can't believe he waited until August to get that hip surgery done. WTF?

If he comes back fully healed he wont stay healthy...the way he plays he's always getting hurt. You just have to watch him from shift to shift...he's always grimacing in pain about something. He gives 110% but his body has trouble with the punishment. He (and the team) would be better off playing a smarter 90% than the reckless 110%.

Oh and who wants to make a bet that Kesler actually hurt the shoulder from diving? FFS

Agreed. I can't believe people are hacking him down for giving 110% everytime he plays.

Warriors are often noted for bravery, but also for having a lack of intelligence. I'm not sure how much credit should be heaped on a guy who dragged down our 2nd line by playing hurt for several months.

He will never be the same again. We will always be waiting for that 2011 playoff Kelser to return but something tells me he never will.

So not only will the Nucks be on the look-out for a 3rd line centre but now also a 2nd line centre for 1/2 the season.

Next season is already looking depressing.

If AV comes back, might as well shut down Lions Gate Bridge....

I have no idea the actual date or who we were playing but I think it may have happened during one game when he hopped over a player around the net & went flying shoulder first into the end boards. I remember it looked pretty bad at the time. However the Kronwall Hit does make a lot of sense too & explains why Kesler was SO angry after it & challenged him to a fight.

Win presidents trophy or finish 8th. Doesn't really matter. A .500 record basically gets you into the playoffs.

Please take 8 months Ryan. 6 Months to fully heal, 2 to train. Would be happy to take 100% Ryan Kesler in January.
