Kevin Bieksa is taking maintenance days in order to maintain

Apr 3, 2012, 5:45 PM EDT

Vancouver defenseman Kevin Bieksa is taking another maintenance day today. He’s taken a few maintenance days lately. In fact, he’s been maintaining since his last game on March 26. It’s not clear how many more maintenance days Bieksa will need, but it’s expected he’ll be fully maintained by the playoffs, if not sooner. The Canucks have played four games since Bieksa started taking maintenance days.

Here’s Bieksa speaking to reporters about all the maintaining he’s been doing on his maintenance days.

PS – The Province reports Bieksa’s been seen limping around Rogers Arena, which suggests his maintenance days are really recovery days, possibly due to a sore foot.

    He’s pretty much the only bearable Canucks player.

      That seems like kind of a silly statement for a team that has Malholtra, Booth, Higgins, Salo, Edler, Shneider, Sedins, Hamhuis, Raymond and so on … all of which (whether youre a fan or not) you have to agree are classy players both on the ice and off.

      But I’m with ya on Bieksa, he’s totally one of the guys that “gets it” when it comes to interacting with the fans and media so I’ll back up anything “props” he gets.

        I, like most Canadians east of the Rockies, can’t stand the Canucks. That being said, I’ve got nothing against Schneider and a few of those other guys but they don’t have the personality Bieksa does. They’ve done nothing to make me like them so I guess I despise them by default.

      Here in Vancouver, Bieksa runs a radio ad for the awareness of depression as a debilitating mental affliction … anyone who does that is “good people” in my books … I also don’t support the Canucks, even though I live here … and yet one can’t deny that they do have some “quality” people on their team, including the likes of Bieksa, the Sedin brothers, Salo, Edler, Schneider, Kesler, Malhotra, Booth, etc …

      Not Kesler?

      Bieksa’s the least bearable. Doesn’t like to drop ’em unless he sees a last name in front of him.
