Travis Zajac/Ryan Kesler/Ryane Clowe

Basically coming down to the player now and in the future.

Who would you choose for now and in the future?

What are some realistic production from each player (Granted Clowe is on SJ)

Clowe is going to get the must point because he is in the best situation.

If you put all three of those players on the same team I'm not sure who I would pick.

Well, I don't know tonnes about all the players, mostly just Kesler. I can't say who will be the best in my mind because of my lack of knowledge, but I do think Kesler has 65-75 point potential. He will provide good secondary scoring and play a great shutdown role. Of course, he may not put up that many points if playing a purely shutdown role...some pp time and different icetime against weaker opponents and he could surely find them though.

Tough choice. Clowe is the best goal scorer of the bunch, Kesler is the best defensively, and Zajac is probably the most well rounded.

I'm not going to vote, as it would be for Zajac, but thats a really good comparison.

Can't go wrong with either, though I think Travis may have the highest upside.

Kesler, the guy hasnt taken a night...no, a shift off all season!

Even when he's not scoring, he's shutting down teams top lines, hitting, playing with grit, the kind of player a team wins championships with.

He got 20 goals last year......i say he tops out 25-30 in his prime with selke nomination if not win.

the other two guys are nothing to scoff at either, but they are more easily replacable imo

Zajac and Kesler are like 2 diffrent type of players.

But I take Kesler. This guy is a workhorse on the 3rd line. Never takes a shift off. Always grinding his way.

It's hard not to take a guy like kesler. He plays all out every shift, gets hit in the face more than anyone i've seen but never misses a shift. It seems like every time he heads to the bench he is hunched over after taking a high stick or skate (actually happened) to the face. also his speed is exceptional and is what makes him a difference maker both offensively and defensively.

I'll take Kesler. Kesler is the core of the Canuck's checking line. He is projected to receive a future Selke nomination.

I'd take Kesler. I don't think any player is going to ever score more than 60ish points in a season and IMO Kesler is easily the best defensive player of the three and should hover around 40-50 points throughout his career.

Kesler because of his strong defensive presence every game.
