I already acknowledged that the media were referring to them as such.
A moot point anyways IMO, as it's KB's play right now that is the issue. The only reason we're even talking about it is because the haters have changed their tune from "Bieksa is brutal" to "Bieksa used to be brutal", and they're fervently hoping that it will happen again.
Well, I did find Bieksa's defensive play to be brutal in '08/'09 when he was expected to play an aggressive pinching style and I didn't think he could rehabilitate poor habits (habits which he was still susceptible to last season) either which is why I wanted to get rid of him. However, now that our coaches have told him only to pinch when he's certain there will be solid puck control his defensive play has vastly improved and it's improved so much so (+24 & 2nd in the entire league - he's never come close to that) that it no longer makes any sense to deal the guy when we have a legit shot at the Cup this year.
As for those morons wishing a Canuck will fail again during his tenure in our uniform, really, why does anyone waste more than a single breath on them? It's almost like calling in to the Team1040 to argue with Troy "from Whiterock". Those types aren't real fans...
