The more I watch the highlights of the hit, the more I'm disgusted by the boys lack of immediate reaction to the cheap shot.

No immediate reaction by any Canuck player is really disheartening. Part of me is willing to give the boys the benefit of the doubt in that maybe none of them saw the hit. Yes there was some targeted push back for a while, but sometimes a team just has to say "WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!" and deal with the situation immediately.

To make matters worse, watching Edler standing there talking to Keith while one of his teammates and best players in the league is down on the ice just makes me froth at the mouth.

This isn't a one time issue either. Remember the rat's low bridge hit on Salo in Boston that again drew no reaction from the Canucks...other than again some friendly talking.

I just can't fathom the lack of reaction...especially when our powerplay has gone down the tubes. What would there be to lose??

Maybe I'm reading to much into it, but I can't think of another solid team with cup aspirations that would be as passive as this after cheap shots to their top players. To me this is a big warning signal that this team isn't as together chemistry wise as we'd like to believe and that something is not right with this team.

Why have we not called up Bitz and Duco again?

Edler's nice discussion (at 20 second mark):

Kess & Henrik's pleasant discussion with the rat (at 20 second mark):

As a comparable, here's Chris Neils reaction to simply a solid hit tonight on Erik Karlsson from the Habs Mike Blunden (at 1:17 mark):




God I love Chris Neil!!!

I totally agree with the OP. Sometimes I wish I could just be on the ice to restore some order. How can a teammate not retaliate after something like that? I would have grabed Keith and beat the living hell out of him!!! It makes me so mad that we didn't destroy this piece of crap..

None of the other Canucks even saw it, play was at the net and people were focused on scoring.

these are the times when i miss the wce era. should be an immediate reaction totally agreed, team has been thru so much together, should be sticking up for eachother (although we saw a lotta that in 2nd period kassian included) there should be an immediate response from EVERYBODY on the ice. I love this team with all my heart, hurts to see them disrespected time and time again.

Edit:im pretty sure the whole canucks organization from ownership down have a addressed this (policy wise too maybe) to players about post whistle scrums (said on record), and that they trust the NHL will do the right thing. Just when it feels like the NHL doesn't do anything, im sorry to say, things will boil up to a point and explose eg bertuzzi moore incident, then it will be too late

If Edler did know what happened he should have at least done the old shove the guy into the glass, give Keith the face wash and let everyone join the scrum. The OP is right, standing around talking about it just doesn't cut it.

Gotta dissagree with the Neil video, though. I am sick of players looking for fights after a good hit. Kesler looked stupid doing it when he got Kromwalled and the rest of the league looks the same. It's like everyone wants to be Ben Eager.

I don't disagree at all. I hate that aspect of the game as well. But it's an example of how some teams stick up for each other...even in this case of just a solid hockey hit.

Lol. Hey I'm all for respecting other human beings, and fair play in this game. And sure I enjoy the rough stuff as long it isn't cheap. But that hit on Danny was dirty, and deliberate with the intent to injure. So in this case I say screw turninig the other cheek and beat the pulp out of this rat so he thinks twice before pulling off a stunt like that again. I think Mr. Lennon would approve.

That's the type of trades that should have been done to address our toughness issue. But no, MG trades our blue chip prospect for a Defencemen who is a plug and Kassian, who hasn't really done much. Great deadline.

There's no proof that there's a "pleasant" conversation going on. Just because they're not throwing jabs at one another, doesn't mean they're having a nice conversation about the tight playoff race. Some of them may not have even seen what happened. And they did try and start something after seemingly every whistle, so it's not like they just forgot about it. You're looking too much into this for some reason.

Totally agree. Somebody needed to fight Keith, or at least grizzly tackle the guy. What about Zack Kassian... sure he laid a few hits in, but for a guy who described himself as someone who 'sticks up for his teammates' when he came over here, he did very little with this opportunity to show his worth.

Byron Bitz is overrated.

Aaron Volpatti is who we need.

It all happened really quick, I highly doubt Edler even saw what happened. Besides, Edler is not a fighter and the last thing we want is to get a guy like him injured before the playoffs. Even though Neil stuck up for his teammate, that hit was perfectly clean.

Lol, you do know who the owner of Dallas is right? No trades will be happening between Vancouver and Dallas unless Dallas is getting a steal.

Apollo is not a real person but a post-bot built by the Aquilini's to create hype.

It's because the Canucks don't want to risk losing the PP and I'm sure the Canucks didn't think Keith was gonna do that to Daniel. Plus, I'm sure they were all looking at the puck.

My god man, they are prospects for Christ's sake, Kesler didn't wow when it was his first year as a Canuck nor did Burrows . Team toughness has been addressed with Weise/Lapierre/Bitz. Do you expect those guys to be on the ice all the time? Or do you want a team full of Ben Eagers, or Daniel Carcillos? The team wins with skill not grit. The total retardation in your post astonishes me.
