[The Province] Kesler says #^%$&* to the ‘haters’

62 posts in this topic

Ryan Kesler is back and motivated by the 'haters':

You may want to think twice about doubting the Canucks.

At least, when you’re around Ryan Kesler.

On the first day of training camp, he promised he’d make the doubters eat their words.

On the third day, he wasn’t quite so nice. Or clean.

Everyone keeps waiting for fireworks from John Tortorella. That will have to wait. They got a spark Friday, however, and that was from Kesler.

“To be honest, I don’t listen to that #^!&,” said Kesler, when asked about people who think the Canucks are on the downslide and are no longer one of the top five teams in the league.

“That’s what it is. It’s #^!&. We believe in ourselves in the dressing room. All those negative comments we’re not even going to …

“To be honest, I shouldn’t have even answered that question. It’s #^!&.”

Kesler did show up at training camp healthy this year. He says it’s the first time in two years. But he’s also got a chip stapled to his shoulder.

Kesler said he wasn’t good enough last year, and promised he will be better this season. It will be for lots of reasons.

One seems to be that he’ll use his critics for motivation.

“The past two years wasn’t my best,” Kesler said. “I’m looking forward to the challenge.

“There’s a lot of people who don’t believe in us and me personally.

“That’s just going to spark more fire.”

Way to go Kes. Whether we play better or not remains to be seen, but always good to see there's a fire burning.

He's a good player, we'll see how much better he can get.

Or maybe Sundin is the key to success lol.

A healthy Kes with two healthy and capable wingers can change the fortunes of this team.

Not sure when we had a solid second line for any period of time.

The last two season's playoffs has created 'doubters'. That doesn't make them 'haters'.
