What a decimating punch Kassian delivered. Sucks for Eager, but he danced with the wrong Canuck that night.

Boom hate that POS ever since that cheap shot against Danny.

I live in Edmonton, and you guys got no idea how much hate Kass is getting right now (even though coiler fans don't like ben much either)

Poor Eager. He wasn't the smartest guy in the league before this concussion.

meh don't want to see anyone get injured.


screw that.......there's only a couple guys in the league who deserve it.......he's one. Cheap shot artist with little to no regard or respect for the health of the players he plays with and against.

I don't know about DJ Ball but I can go waaaay lower.

God bless the NHL if I was ever an enforcer.


no kidding, politically correct kumbaya types make me laugh.
i dont think its un-reasonable to want to see Kassian cleanly catch Keith with his head down and have him leave on a stretcher
after what he did last year to our organization.

What exactly did he do last year to "our organization"? Check a Sedin? Heavens! Quick, "Bertuzzi" him!

To all you people gloating that a Canuck injured another player by starting a fight with him I say that the karma fairy has a nasty way of getting even with such sentiments. I love Kass as much as anyone and was delighted to see him tune up Eager but gloating over his getting a concussion is so typical of the whiny classless attitudes of some fans here. Let's hope the karma fairy isn't listening.

I am not one that wants kass to take out revenge on anyone for something that happened last season.
There is no way he will ever get to go toe to toe with Keith, marchand (sp) etc they will never step up against him, and i don't want him to get a suspension for jumping a player.
but if he could ever catch them with there head down.... i might be happy.
as for fighting Eager i am glad he did but i also wish Vandy was in the lineup so he could have done it.
but at least Kass will get some legit tough guy Cred.

Having a healthy Kassian, Volpatti, and Vandermeer (sp) will be and essential part of a good cup run.
I hope for great things but i do not want to see Kass fighting ever other night.


edit: plus kass is still just a kid wait a couple years and he will be a monster out there.
guys like eager will think twice (if they are even able to think once.) before trying anything dirty.

Kass can still gain a lot of weight in the next few years , 20-30lbs by the time he is 25-26 is not unrealistic

Clearly you have forgotten the SJS series or the CHI series when he was there? I will not hide my joy at his pain. Say what you will about me . Eager's karma has come full circle.

Who are all these people saying "I wouldn't wish a concussion on anyone, poor Eager". If I was on the ice during that hit on Daniel/punch on Colby I would have nearly killed the guy. Concussion would be the least of his worries. That is so incredibly beyond something you do in a game and this guy does it over and over. If someone went knee on knee on Eager, I'd send the guy chocolates and flowers. Same goes for Marchand. The only way these guys stop getting away with their crap is when players start sending them to the hospital for their actions.

So I guess you are a big fan of Bertuzzi "defending his captain" then too eh? Has Eager actually sent anybody to the hospital with any of his hits? One thing I am certain of; if he were a Canuck he would be a fan favorite. Antics aside he could play for my team. At least he doesn't bite or pull people's hair.

lol you must be a blackhawks fan. If Ben Eager was a Canuck...I would hate him just as much as I do now(only a matter of time before he'd do something stupid that costs the team). And I guess trying to put someone in the hospital is ok if you don't actually succeed? Is that what you are saying?

Aww, thema......are you telling me you wouldn't bite the finger of some ass trying to shove their finger(s) down your throat? Bad example.......I'll give ya the hair pulling thing,though, not terribly on-ice cool even if it's in reaction to something said person is doing to you first.....

And no, Eager would not be this fan's favourite by a long shot.

Guess Eager's sucker punch (against Armstrong for which he was suspended 4 games) wasn't "Bertuzzi" enough for you. Pretty wimpy compared to Bert's career ending criminal assault. Now THERE'S a tough guy.


Eager makes the perfect villain; if he were forced to retire because of this nobody here would have him to vent on. Admit it, you would miss him. He's almost made his pension despite having little or no actual hockey ability yet he sticks in the league because he is the perfect agitator. His teammates also love him (ask Philly). As I said I'm glad Zach tuned him up but anybody who gloats over his concussion deserves to have their favorite Canuck go down for awhile. Classless.

You forgot an L in your name there you nancy

Eager's a prick that Canucks fans have hated for ages, and now one of our rising young stars owned him in a fight, feels great!

You had best hope the "karma fairy" is not listening, as flaunting a fairy of any kind can be dangerous .. your sentiments leave you open to a visit from Tinkerbell .. I have seen worse acts of violence on the ice than what Bertuzzi did to Moore that went unpenalized .. IF there is a karma fairy, then Mark Messier is bound to die slowly of some rectal disease .. how fitting ..

Then why is Marchand still skating? Chara? For what he did to Pacioretty?

At least Kassian fought Eager cleanly.

Heck, Bertuzzi is still playing professional NHL hockey after what he did to what's his face. There is no such thing as karma my friend, only bullies and bullieds. And we are better off being the former.

Never, ever want to see another player injured, not even a complete douchebag like Ben Eager. That said, "Karma" got him pretty good, didn't it?

"Karma" was played brilliantly by Kassian's fist.

Think I might change my user name to "Kassian's Fist".

Hopefully this deters people from taking runs at the twins. Word travels fast when you give someone like Eager a concussion.

It's hard to feel bad for him after all the cheap shots his taken.

This is good news for the Canucks. Kassian is making a name for himself. He's letting Edmonton and other teams that he's here to stay. Who was the last Canuck to do that?

One more thing. Remember when Ben Eager played for San Jose, took dumb penalties that ended San Jose' playoff hopes. From what I've read he's not been endeared by Edmonton fans either. Also his brawling in a bar with his brother during the lockout wasn't good for his career. Ben Eager is having what one can only call a moronic hockey career. If he keeps it up he'll be compared to Sean Avery. The parents must be so proud.

Thanks for coming out Ben!
