Kypreos was right about lu though

It''s going to be an interesting off season.

Theres a strong chance AV used the media to motivate Kes. Kes does have a big ego and if he's getting criticized publicly, he'll do what it takes to prove people wrong.

With his injury, it will probably take more than a season to recover.

Kesler needs to get his shit together. Dude has an ego. Never passes it seems and gets so predictable. He always skates over the blue line and shoots..never looks to pass to his wingers.

AV/Gillis have a reputation for making dumbass comments about their players to the media. Remember Cody's issue with the bulging disc in his back and how they claimed he wasn't hurt THAT bad?

"Fans" of this team will chase star players who are under performing out of this town in a heartbeat. It happened to Naslund, it is happening to Luongo and it will happen to Kesler next.

I still can't believe AV got extended. He gets too much credit for what the team in front of him is capable of. When was the last time he actually out-coached somebody?

It's not that he doesn't want to pass, it's just that he can't pass. He's not a playmaker. He's a power forward. I've been saying before, if he has a centreman that can pass him the puck in stride he'll be a consistent scorer.

Kesler isn't a power forward, and even if he was, that's no excuse for his lack of playmaking skills. Getzlaf is a power forward, and he's one of the premier passers in the league.

He was doing the same thing in 2010-11 and his shots went in. Nobody seemed to complain about his lack of passing then... The only thing that intrigues me about possibly moving Kesler this off season is that his NTC doesn't kick in til July 2012, my curiosity makes me wonder what a player of his potential can return in the trade market. But the fact that he's out of service right now probably kills any trade value unless there is a team out there that is really desperate to make a change and take a gamble.

I'm not sure Schenn plus 5th for Lu will get it done for MG. IF it happens, there'll be other moves on our back end to free things up a bit both roster and cap wise, makes for a very interesting off season for sure.

Maybe I'm over-evaluating but I think it would take more than that for Luongo.

trades cant be made during the finals. bettman doesnt want anything to take attention away from it. also they wont trade larsson for schnieder.

believe its more of an unwritten rule. as the only attention the nhl wants right now is on the cup finals. was shocked bos and wash even made a trade at this time. nba has a similar unwritten rule during the finals
