Weren't we saying a year ago that we need more assholes?
Just get rid of the pussyass diving and I'll be happy.
Personally I loved Kess' bumping of Quick for a goal.
I also admired his nut-sack stick-work on Stoll.
But yeah he needs to take some of the diving out of his game.
The diving is what drives me nuts. I've got no problem with running guys, giving them the lumber, a snow shower, or a shot to the face. The problem I have is when the reverse is done, it seems like our heads snap back quicker, our legs give out faster, and our arms flail easier, than almost any team in the league.
When we score on the PP, this type of behaviour can help us win games. When our PP is shit and we're still pulling that garbage, it's embarrassing. Right now the Canucks need to get their heads out of their asses, realize that hard work wins games, and get on with it.
I will add, however, that last night's game WAS a joke to watch. Half of those penalties wouldn't be called in a regular season game, and now they're called in a playoff game? The reffing has been horrid league-wide all season, and it was absolutely atrocious league-wide in the first night of the Playoffs.
