Kevin Bieksa made himself look stupid on Monday when he called out Logan Couture and Joe Thornton for what he believed to be embellishing. The Canucks defenseman accused Couture and Thornton of having no integrity for hockey and therefore weren’t real Canadians.
Couture said he doesn’t have to give a response to Bieksa because he let’s his play do the talking. Meantime, we called out Bieksa for the bitter hypocrite that he is because we keepz it realz. And on Tuesday, more members of the Sharks decided to join in on the Bieksa hammering.
Here’s Todd McLellan forecasting Bieksa’s future grievances with the Sharks:
“If we go back now to look at the series, we’ve been called cheaters in Game 1, we’ve been called embellishing Canadians after Game 3. If the series goes any deeper, we may be accused of biting, eventually.”
McLellan with a rather clever rebuttal, if you remember the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals.
Joe Thornton, who holds dual citizenship, addresses Bieksa calling him a “so-called Canadian”:
“I consider myself kind of North American, minus Mexico,” Thornton said.
And last but not least there’s Adam Burish, who absolutely tore into Bieksa:
“I guess it if I was him, while he’s up on his soap box trying to save the integrity of the game and doing all that stuff, I’d swing by player No. 14 (Alex Burrows) and player No. 17 (Ryan Kesler) – The Beast – and have a little talk with them about diving and the integrity. Then he can work his way over to our room. … “It was silly to call out the refs and worry about what we’re doing. Please, keep worrying about us. But, in our room we’re going to worry about our guys, what we’ve got to do, how we can be better and not worry about the integrity of the game and have props in interviews, and act like a lawyer with video evidence.”
