from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province,
The agent for Ryan Kesler has laid the factual foundation for a contract extension. He hasn’t drawn any conclusions or drawn a line in the sand after two discussions with management, but he did suggest that the ball is now in the court of the Vancouver Canucks.
“Ryan is a warrior,” Kurt Overhardt said Thursday of his client who is earning $1.75 million US in the final year of his deal.
“I know he’s looking forward to the club acknowledging his value by stepping up and signing him to a contract extension. Ryan and his family would be honoured to remain in Vancouver for several more seasons.”...
According to Overhardt, the Canucks won 48.28 per cent of their games (12-13-4) when the Sedins had more ice time than Kesler.
They won 74.36 per cent of their games (26-10-3) when the twins had less time than Kesler.
