Kesler says talk of Canucks’ decline is ‘(expletive)’

Ryan Kesler doesn’t think the Vancouver Canucks are on the decline. In fact, he swears they’re not. (Three times, by our count.)

“To be honest, I don’t listen to that s***,” said Kesler Friday, per The Province.

“That’s what it is. It’s 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 s***.”

In the wake of two straight first-round playoff losses, the Canucks have a lot to prove in 2013-14.

“That’s just going to spark more fire,” said Kesler, referring to all the doubters out there.

      Kesler has a good sense of humor. His photobombing a couple seasons ago was good stuff. It’s possible he was channeling Torts for the shiggles.

    Kesler is washed up.

    So said many of the ‘ill-fated’ passengers aboard RMS Titanic on the evening of April 14th, 2012, as little did they know of the impending doom which lay before them in the form of an iceberg. And here today in 2013 we have Kesler ‘blabbing’ on about this and that. As we all know friends, the bottom line is that the Vancouver Canucks are now barreling blindly into a ‘massive’ flow of icebergs (LA, Anaheim, San Jose, Phoenix, etc) and there will be the devil to pay, no two ways about it. God speed to these people …

        ‘What would Elvis do ?’ …

        As you know friend, like our glorious LA Kings Elvis was also a ‘man of action’ who did things ! This is in ‘stark’ contrast to all of this lame ‘blabbing & tweeting’ which the Canucks (sans Sedin brothers) seem to have a penchant for …

    Spark “more” fire?

    In order to spark “more” fire, you’d need to have fire in the first place. If they had any, they wouldn’t be known as the choke artists they are so rightfully known as
