#2 Ryan Kesler and Patrick Eaves are 100% Back
Well, then there is this prediction. It started out with such promise and potential, and then it all came crashing down around us. Recent reports have suggested that Patrick Eaves is dealing with the same weakness and symptoms that he had two seasons ago. Symptoms from a post viral infection that seems to be difficult to diagnosis at this point.
Ryan Kelser has not played since he reached 1,001 games and recent reports suggest he Bob Murray and Kesler’s medical team have had a sit down to discuss the future. This prediction couldn’t have gone more wrong but at the end of the day, it goes far past my prediction, far past this site, and far past the Ducks/game of hockey.
This is about the overall health of two people. Two people with wives and families to take care of and be there for. As much as we would all love to see vintage Ryan Kesler and Patrick Eaves flying around the ice at Honda Center, scoring big goals, and part of huge moments, there are things more important than hockey.
These two need to get their health right so they could lead full and happy lives away from the rink and the game. I, for one, am happy the Anaheim Ducks and, seemingly, the players are taking that approach. This may have been the last we have seen of them in the NHL, and if it is, and they get back to 100% healthy, that is what matters first and foremost.
Verdict: 1/10 Not right at all, and in light of recent developments they just need to get their health right overall.
