Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau feels Ryan Kesler provides the Anaheim Ducks with something they lacked last season.
"He's a big, strong centerman," Boudreau said of Kesler. "As much as I loved all of the players on our team last year, Saku (Koivu) wasn't very big, Nick Bonino isn't very big and Mathieu Perreault isn't very big. Now we have that big centerman who can play against every other team's top line, and allow Ryan Getzlaf's line not to have to play against them, especially at home." Kesler is expected to typically center the second line after being acquired from Vancouver. The Ducks are betting on the idea that the one-two punch of Ryan Getzlaf and Kesler will help Anaheim not only excel in the regular season, but also edge out top teams like Chicago and Los Angeles in the playoffs.
