Here's an article saying how brilliantly Kesler is playing on the wing. This should come as a surprise to no one. Imagine if Gillis and AV had realized the obvious a few years ago and NOT made the brutal Hodgson trade.
Hodgson as the second-line C in the offensive zone on a line with Kesler had a ton of potential and it was barely even tried. It would have played to all of both player's positives and none of the "issues" about playing time would ever have irritated Gillis to the point that he made the bad trade.
