I am looking for a good tool that would allow me to centralize my event logs for my ESX servers.  I'm particular interested in capturing logs such as the vmkernal logs.  Is there a good tool that someone has had exerperience with that will allow this?

Look for a syslog tool and then a analyser tool to analyse the logs.

Try ESX Guide. It allows you to remotely connect and download your logs directly from the server into one place. Also allows you to view them on the fly. Great news is that it also works with vSphere 4.
