Ryan Kesler has been easily one of the most fond hockey players non-wings related for me, unfortunately it seems slowly but surely he is just rubbing me all the wrong ways on how he conducts himself. I'm not saying I know him personally but after receiving that beautiful legitimate hockey hit he has come off as one of the weakest minded hockey players i've come across. Listen, if you're going to play, none-the-less at a professional level being considered one of the best two-way forwards in the league, understand that when you have positive control of the puck and give Kronner no less an opportunity to lay you out, you're going to get hit/knocked off the puck. The latest interview of Kesler b!tching about Kronner just had me laughing,

"

I think if you're going to hit guys like that, you're going to have to drop the gloves."


"I think he has zero career fights in his career," Kesler said. "If you're going to continue to hit like that, I think you've got to answer the bell."

Kesler delivered a thigh-on-knee hit on Henrik Zetterberg's left leg, though Kesler denied doing so. "I have no idea what you're talking about," Kesler said when asked by a Detroit reporter.


Why? Why does Kesler magically think because Kronner wants to dish legitimate hits that stop plays dead in their tracks, ending what could be a potential odd man rush/scoring chance, he needs to drop the gloves? No less you come back later in the game and knee someone back? Please, someone get this 13 year old he isn't playing bantam anymore.

eh, Kesler has always been one of my non-Wing favorites, too. The Canucks have delusions of grandeur when it comes to their place in the NHL. Makes them say ridiculous things.

Kronner may not have more fights than Kesler, but he's got more Stanley Cups. Oh, well. :)

Kesler is a wanna-be


:lol:


Datsyuk has more Selke's, too. Just sayin'.....

Honestly, it's just the cry baby attitude that a lot of the Canucks players seem to have. There's an arrogance to some of their players which is unfortunate because at times they (the arrogant, whiney players) can so good.

Hopefully Alex Edler was prepared to drop the gloves after hitting Kane last year in the first round.




You know, because you can't hit anyone unless you're prepared to fight. Like Edler's never done in his life.

If Scott Stevens had to answer for every hit he made, he would've hit a million penalty minutes. Kesler is a joke. He's not from Detroit. I refuse to believe it.

Kesler should be thankful Kronner didn't fight. Not that I think Kronwall is a bad ass or anything, but Kesler is af****** *****

Well tbh if Kronner isn't suspended Shanahan has no credibility left.

And any hit that deserves a suspension probably deserves a fight too.

Why?

if fistric was suspended for leaving his feet during the hit; that is after contact; and kronwall is clearly off the ice before contact then how wouldn't kronwall be suspended?

I hate Kesler and his behavior, but I have nothing against him challenging Kronwall to back up his hit. It was a questionable hit and he did leave his feet somewhat. Kronwall shouldn't be afraid of obliging Kesler there.

And don't compare him to Scott Stevens. Stevens had more than his share of fights throughout his career, especially in his prime.

I don't expect or want Kronwall to drop his gloves a lot, but I don't want to see him skating away from Ryan Kesler either.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I never directly compared Kronwall to Stevens, more today's NHL to the NHL of the past, as far as having to answer for every hit, whether its clean or not.

Okay Kesler, fair enough maybe he should expect to have to drop the gloves if he hits people like that, but if you continue to skate around with your head down maybe you should expect to be hit like that and not be such a ***** about it when you do.

Kesler is a whiney *****. He has a damn shoulder .. use it. I love how Kronwall DOESNT fight after huge hits. It drives the opposition nuts!

Why do you always have to answer for hitting in the NHL now? Keep your head up next time Kesler and it won't be an issue.

This guy used to be one of my favorite players in the league until last season, especially in the playoffs. Now I just see him as a whiner and hypocrite. It is completely wrong for Kronwall to make a hit but Kesler is allowed to stick his knee out and try to injure Zetterberg? Total clown -- fits in well on that team with the Sedin's, Bieksa and Burrows.

Then what happens if Kronner breaks his hand and is out for weeks? It's not worth it. I about had a heart attack when Datsyuk dropped em with Perry. It was awesomely terrifying.

This. I was listening to Chicago radio when he destroyed Havlat in '09 and the announcers were livid that Kronwall wouldn't fight. As if it were absolutely reprehensible.
