Kesler Has To Be Hurting

from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province,

If this is turning into the Nashville series for the Vancouver Canucks, they’re going to need their predatorial antidote.

That happens to be Ryan Kesler, the fellow who put himself into the Conn Smythe Trophy lead with perhaps the greatest playoff series ever authored by a Canuck player although Richard Brodeur might have something to say about that.

But right now Kesler has a problem. He’s not the same player. The attention he’s getting and the pounding he’s taken has him a very frustrated young man at the moment and apparently limited player in many ways despite his eloquent denials. When a dwarf like Brad Marchand can cuff him aside and score the third goal the way he did Monday night, it’s enough to make you gulp a Selke award right on the spot.
