I sincerely hope no one does. It would be so pointless. This is a sad, sad thread. Even more sad that some people actually think that Keith needs physical harm inflicted upon him.


While I agree that it would be pointless for someone to fight him, I think that we have to at least hit Keith as much as we can throughout the game to send a message to the rest of the league that we won't let our star players get attacked without responding.

But, if someone on our team went Carkner on him, I'd love to see that as well. (referring to the Carkner vs Boyle incident..)

1. What does the fact the Sedin is Swedish have to do with anything?
2. I'm not defending Keith's actions, he was wrong for what he did.
3. Keith isn't paid to fight so I have no problem if he doesn't. Keith is paid to lead our defense and help bring us championships, which he did. Keith has a Stanley Cup, Norris Trophy and Olympic Gold Medal....so I'm not too worried about him.
4. If you think Keith should "answer the call" then so should Daniel, he started everything with his elbow to Keith (yes, it wasn't as bad as Keith's).
5. You mention Keith's cheapshots, as in more than one. What other cheapshots are you referring to? I'm sure the only ones you care about are ones against Canuck's players.
6. Canucks fans shouldn't throw too many stones about havings cheap players, Burrows (for example) is very cheap, he is effective but he's cheap (finger biting, groin kneeing, hair pulling).

I'm a Blackhawks fan but I like the Canucks too, I don't have anything against them. If you're going to attack the Blackhawks (or an individual player) then fair enough, but make your argument half-decent and don't let your emotions get the best of you (I'm not trying to take a jab at your personally).

The Blackhawks and Canucks are two great organizations and each group of fans are lucky to follow teams that are dedicated to winning.


You know, none of this happens if Keith protects himself properly in the first place. If you don't protect yourself, you're going to get hurt. They teach you this in minor hockey. So the fact Duncan got hit in the head is his fault and there's the explanation why.

Im not holding my hopes up much that anyone will attempt anything more than the usual facewash "toughness" we have shown in the past.. quite frankly if it comes down to Weise he'll probably get his ass kicked in embarrassing fashion. I can see Kassian wanting to do sth but with this teams mentality i expect he get's told not to.

Bieksa is tough but he is not the toughest on the team. Kassian is.


Volpatti is the toughest. He walks away from nobody. Kassian might be but we don't know yet. Juice needs to be in the mood usually....................and watch out for Pinizzotto.
By the way I don't think it's toughness we are talking about here as our whole team is tough...............it's a willingness to "pushback"

Right so if Keith doesn't fight whomever on the Canucks wants a piece of him then we can go the "Bertuzzi route" eh? Because IIRC Moore fought in his last game ever (his first ever pro hockey fight no less) and it wasn't enough for the likes of the "true Canuck fans" who wanted him to line up and fight however many Canucks wanted a go at him. This is NOT how the "code" works. I am of the firm opinion that it would be far more satisfying to beat the Hawks 6-0 and make sure Keith is a -6 with about 10 hard bodychecks laid on him. You sure have an interesting definition of "honour".


You have a serious issue with reading comprehension. Hijacking my argument and taking it to lengths I would never go to will hardly make your point look feasible. I hated what Bertuzzi did as a Canuck, but you seem to be blissfully unaware that he has nothing to do with our current organization. I have to add that if you think no Canuck will be getting into a scrap with a Hawk over this incident, you have either never played the game and don't know any better, or you were a player who was victimized on the ice and is still bitter about it.

I don't think you understand what honour means. Keith intentionally elbowed a player in the face. He knows he what he did was wrong and he has two choices: stand up and take his punishment like a man or let someone else take his punishment for him. Which would you consider to be the honorable route?

I agree, if the Canucks want real revenge it should come on the scoreboard, not the penalty box. I have no problem with Carcillo and Kassian (or whomever) fighting, but it really doesn't change anything. Would Canucks fans feel better if Kassian pummled Carcillo but lost the game 5-2?


The teams scrapping it out have nothing to do about how we as fans feel at all, it's about the players and the game(s). It all depends on the climate of the next game, if it's tight, I doubt anything will happen unless it's planned out between two fighters so no extra penalties are handed out. If the games a laugher for either side, expect fireworks.

I would prefer two players fighting than our team running around like Raffi Torres trying to send Keith into next week. THAT will result in someone getting seriously injured and/or suspended. Duke it out then move on.

I'd like to see the whole team take him out.

Keith will not finish that game. He either gets into too many fights and gets kicked out, or we injure the shi*t out of him. Say what you want about being a "classy" team, it ended up in us losing to Boston. This is a huge opportunity for the Canucks to show the NHL that we aren't going to stand for this kind of stuff anymore and take out Keith.


So you're basically requesting another Steve Moore incident. Another brilliant post. I guess you and other 'hockey fans' in this thread advocating such things were cheering the TV when Steve Moore got his so called comeuppance? I personally found that game to be one of the least enjoyable, dirty Canucks hockey games I've ever seen and I find it disgusting people are requesting something similar again on here.

Stick up for your teammate if he gets cheap shotted at the time, and hit Keith into oblivion within the rules. You don't plan to injure other players for months then cheap shot them if they don't want to fight later on. That's just as cowardly as Keith's hit.

Even more appalling are the people suggesting we go out and injure Kane, Toews, or some other player in retaliation if Keith doesn't want to have a fist fight. So we're going to start going out and injuring innocent people who had nothing to do with Daniel's injury just so Keith takes some flack in his dressing room and regrets his actions? Not only is that stupid reasoning, it'd probably result in them retaliating and we could fall short of the Cup again due to injuries. The Canucks aren't known to be a very tough team and you people are suggesting we start a retaliatory process that puts our key players at risk if we go to injure other teams' key players? Bravo for thinkin' up that plan.

When Sedin hit Keith the puck wasn't around them. Besides that, no player should have to worry about protecting themselves from elbows to the head. Elbows to the head are unacceptable and that includes both Keith's hit on Sedin and Sedin's hit on Keith. I know you're a bit biased towards your home team, but how can you justify Daniel's elbow to Keith? Heads shots have no place in the game and both players were wrong for what they did.

If one of the twins dropped em and fought Keith, that would just be so epic. I wouldn't even care if he lost, if it's a home game, the entire crowd would just go batsh*t crazy. No more complaining about quiet suits.

Keith played the puck and Daniel came in to hit him less than a second later. And it clearly isn't an elbow to the head as the replay shows. I'm not being biased at all.

. Kudos to you my friend. Threads like this (and most of the posts in it) are why Canuck fans are reviled around the league. I'm hoping that it is only a tiny minority that thinks deliberately injuring Keith is a good idea but I'm not so sure.

It's a bit late for that, no? As with the Marchand/Salo incident, the Canucks had a chance to exact their pound of flesh at the time of the incident AND later in the same game that it happened, remember? Why are we talking about it now? We all know what kind of team this is. Ain't gonna happen, folks, sorry.

And, especially if caveman Carcillo is back in the lineup. You think he's going to let any Canucks put hands on Duncan Keith?

Its unfortunate that Daniel got hurt and Keith was wrong, but he served his suspension and it's time to move on. If the Canucks target Keith then the Hawks will go after another Canucks. If the Canucks want revenge beat them on the score board and be as physical as possible without drawing a penalty.

Kassian:

Not too sure if he will even be in the Canucks top 6 line up for this season, depends on his play. We didn't get to see a single Kassian fight last season, I hope he steps up this year and rolls on Keith. I thought that is why we got him, for his toughness. Although at 21 years old we still don't know if he is capeable of taking on the likes of Keith. I think he can do it, and I hope he does.

"The likes of Keith"? Duncan Keith is about as tough as a wet tissue...

Look for Mr. Kassian to repeat on oh, I don't know, Jonathan Toews or Patrick Kane?

I'd hardly call Toews classy. Do you remember when we bumped them out of the play offs and he had his little hissy fit?


I called him classier though and no I don't.

I saw Keith bring the Cup to Penticton and had the utmost respect for him. His drive, competition level and desire to succeed are what brought him to the NHL and made him a star.


But I have lost all respect for him now. I actually share a postal code with Keith, not sure if I'll have the balls to call him out when I see him on the beach one day in the future.


That, being said, this is a prime example of why Vancouver doesn't have a cup. The canucks back down and don't stand up for each other. The Sedins shouldn't be out there trying to throw elbows. They just don't know how to do it, it's not in their nature.

"We'll get them back on the powerplay" WRONG

"We'll get 'em next game" WRONG

"We'll get them next year" WRONG


The reaction should be automatic. Every player on the ice at the time should have immediately jumped Keith and any other Blackhawk who had something to say about it. That way, it is in the heat of the moment, you can prove your point and hold your head up high. If you wait then it becomes pre meditated and, in the case of the nux, nothing comes of it and the rest of the league knows they can get away with this type of garbage against us. The word is out, the canucks are pansies, feel free to physically abuse them at your will and leisure.

Volpatti - Lapierre - Pinizzotto

Assuming Lappy and Pinizzotto find their scoring touch (which they both have), then this line can do some heavy damage in the physicality department.
