Ryan Kesler, where have you been all my life?
I'm not going to do playoff predictions because I'm not that bold. Anything can happen at any time. The eighth seed could clobber the first seed, regardless of what happened during the regular season. I will not look into the future and predict.
Though my teams for this playoff season are Anaheim, Pittsburgh, and Vancouver. Woooo!
Okay I've been paying particular attention to Ryan Kesler these past few days. The commentators on Versus said that he's an overall good hockey player and I would have to agree. He hits, he gets points, he'll fight if he needs to. He's the type of player everyone needs on the team. Besides, I decided that I love a European and I love a Canadian, but I don't give an American as much attention as I need to. Hellllo Ryan Kesler.
Ironically, I looked up his entry on Wikipedia yesterday and learned that the guy is 205 lbs and 6'2". Three pounds off and the same height as Thomas Vanek. Oh, coincidences. I like big men, as you can tell.
...Get your head out of the gutter!
