I don't see him being traded, and I don't Lou holding a grudge.

Kessler is one of those guys that will do anything it takes to win, and no matter what, country blood runs thicker than club. You have to admire that about him, and you know he's going to be the same abrasive prick on behalf of the 'Nucks come spring.

Everything Dude just said, I fully agree with.

Kesler is a glue guy, and would likely be the Captain of this team if Lu wasn't the "Captain"

Kesler is a proud american, and good for him on that.

Big question coming out of these games for the Nucks is Pavol Demitra, and his ability to play like he was 27 again during these games, not 37 or however old he is. He was named to the Tourney all star team ffs...

Housearrest, kjohnsob, stinsonsawesome, and some other friends and I took in the game at the Kingston Taphouse. Legendary Stuff! and a legendary hangover yesterday. :(

But it was all worth it. Imagine is the nucks can get a bit of magic going this spring?

I'm now officially devastated the olympics are over. So depressing. Traffic is back to it's ugly self, there's no appeal in going downtown to just aimlessly wander...

Fcuk Sochi in 2014, bring it back here! :wa:

BTW...the fact that he cried, after coming so close to the goal to winning gold...no issues w/ that. The guy gave everything he had, and was emotionally spent. I'm sure some of the Canadian guys shed some tears of relief.

Another BTW...I was also sad yesterday. I fully loved the last two weeks, and am having a tough time accepting it is over.

I'm deffinitely going to try and get to Russia for theirs!

I'd be upset if he didn't cry, as a Canadian and Canuck fan.
If any of the Americans didn't cry (Or Canadians if the shoe had gone onto the other foot) you'd wonder how much they cared.

The fact is that these guys killed themselves over this 12 day tourney for their countries, and to come up that short for kesler and parise (who were undefeated in Gold Medal games- U17, U18, WJHC) must have been devastating.

It's going to be very hard to go back to watching run of the mill NHL hockey after that two weeks.

I have honestly started a Sochi 2014 savings plan after experiencing how awesome these Olympics and events are. I also plan on actually getting tickets like sixfyv so I can witness another gold on Russian soil this time.

The hangover has started, I found myself looking for something exciting to watch and there was nothing on.

Awesome 6'5"...just awesome.

Stallchone, Sochi 2014 should be a riot. I'm going to save up myself as I've wanted to visit Russia for years anyways...4 years should be plenty of time to save!

You mean the inheritance lottery?

So Dad was an entrepreneur who branched out into a couple of companies.
Good for him and better for you and your brother.

Spoiled South Delta brats is right. :D


PS - I'm in on the Sochi trip lads. :)
