Everybody should just chill on Burrows. It was a frickin fight; should he kiss him?
Its not like Kieth's good sportsmanship has been validated. He does things that drive people to want to kill him. His cheap shot on Danny is worse IMO. I agree with this point just below...

That's because that's exactly how you fight a long haired femme like DB Keith .. you must use every available tool at hand ..
Kess will be fine too! Check the warrior effort he put up at the Olympics and until he got injured in our cup run. And he played on, this year also. I disagree with management or CDC'ers who call out Kesler when he's playing through injury.
Call him injury prone, like Salo, if it comes down to that but judge his play for what its worth!

Talk to me when you score a game 7 overtime winner against your biggest rival.
We should have no fear cheering for Burrows because he's a warrior. Most of his battles are against bigger guys! The Oilers never soured on Tikanen, Detroit just signed Tootoo. Pronger is considered intimidating, because he's also big. Make no mistake, Big Chris is much nastier than Burrows. And Peverly's slash on Bieksa was worse than anything Burrows has ever done. What we really need is someone exactly like Burrows who is 220 lbs! Hopefully Kassian or someone can pick up the baton!
Honest question; did Claude Lemieux make it to the hall of fame? Guys like Burrows and Kesler help your team win.
But..On diving, nothing wrong with falling down when someone cheap shots you. Plenty of chances to battle back. The rest would be better eliminated.

I find it funny when people say this specifically about Kesler. What about Burrows? He dives just as much, and he pulled Keith's hair, but nobody ever mentions that, do they?
