As fans we always set the bar high as far as our expectations goes for how well the team does every year.
After a down year by his standards in 2016, many thought Corey Perry was going to terrorize the league the way he did en route to a Hart award in 2011.
However, this is where Ryan Kesler swoops you off your feet.
Given the physical game he plays, his contract that lasts until 2023 concerns me.
As happy I was when we first got him, it never crossed my mind that he would be our best player let alone lead the team in points.
After all, we specifically got him to be the second line center.
So how this will pan out down the line remains to be seen, but until then I like our chances of winning a cup in 2-3 years.
Kesler, you have earned the right to tell Getzy that you’re the captain now.
