Is the coach trying to bring more motivation to Kesler? Your thoughts on AV's comments.

Come on No. 17, beast mode from now on in the playoffs!
Sounds more to me like AV and Kes aren't on the same page

It's all been said already, once Kesler stops trying to sell the officials on drawing penalties and focus on his game he'll start to get back into his groove. He completely shut down Toews last year so there's no reason he can't do the same with Richards. Right now he's picking up his bad habits again.

I'm not sure if I'm in the minority but I truly believe his 41G season last year was an aberration. Everything that could go right for him did; in my mind he's more of a 25-30G scorer.

Actually thomas' version was worst, as he went out to hit sedin, Holtby looked like he was just trying to prevent the guy from running into him.

Man, the inconsistency with the officiating is just blatant.

I wonder what's the green men's relationship with the brown guy who sits next to the penalty box. Green men also goin to LA?
What the deal with that kid, we always wondered does he have autism or something? He's always wearing those things to protect his ears, he's more than old enough to not need them at a hockey game. GM isn't that loud at all.

Anybody actually watch the Detroit/Nashville game last night?? Detroit and Nashville are two teams that give up the least amount of penalties...Last night, 17 penalties were handed out. The game was called retardedly tight....Do you think it was a coincidence that commissioner Gary Bettman was on hand Wednesday night for the closely officiated game?.....(rhetorical question)

Is it me, or maybe it's the amount of penalties we had, but our fans are soo damn quiet!

Not only that, most of them were not even wearing blue or white. I know it was raining yesterday, but for fuck sakes, take off you black jackets cause all I saw in the stands were people wearing jackets not cheering. Lots of black areas in the stands.

I agree, and I think that will be the peak of his offensive career. Kesler's future is a checking centre IMO.. and probably not with the Canucks for longer than his current contract

What do you expect when tickets are going for $500?? If you want to see the people that make noise and are wearing canucks gear instead of suit jackets, look towards the upper bowl. And we have some of the worst fans in the league; our fans are more likely to put the team further down rather than trying to get them back on their feet.

Our team needs to stfu, stop chirping so much between whistles, stop embellishing plays/selling officials and just play hockey.

sure, chirping is part of the game, but to a certain extent. when you're team is playing like shit for the most part, the last thing you should be thinking of doing is talking shit to the opponent. canucks just need to go back to playing solid hockey and nothing more. i hate seeing guys like rome stirring shit when he's playing mediocre.

like mentioned above, kesler needs to stop worrying about drawing penalties by selling the refs bullshit. we'll get PP chances from hard work.

just my 2cents.

It doesn't help that the Canucks suck at embellishment.
