Has Ryan Kesler played his last game as a Vancouver Canuck? | Puck Daddy - Yahoo Sports
I like Ryan Kesler. He's from Livonia and he's a great 2nd line center. As you've probably heard, he's been linked to Detroit in recent trade rumors. Here's my problem with Kesler, even without Zetterberg, we still have a slew of centers (Datsyuk, Helm, Weiss, Glendening, and Andersson). I just don't see the need for Kesler.

After stroke, Kris Letang unsure when he’ll return to Penguins | Puck Daddy - Yahoo Sports

One of my cousins got a stroke about 2 years ago. He is in his early 30's and while he's not a professional athlete as Letang is, he had been running and skiing all of his life and was in as good of a shape as you can be. 2 years later, he still can't drive and struggles with a lot of day-to-day tasks. Strokes can take a long time to recover from.
