Regarding Duncan Keith, I am not going to be easy on the guy in this article because he knew what he was doing and the entire Blackhawk team has done their best to brutalize the Canucks over the last few years. Did you see the first round playoff match-up between the two teams last year? The Blackhawks committed crime after crime and the refs just let it go because they wanted to give the defending Stanley Cup Champs all the help that they could. The league would make a lot more money if an American team was to win the Cup, and what other reason could it have been? Well, the Canucks managed to just get by the Blackhawks but then in the
series the refs let the animals on the Bruins do what they wanted and the
Sedins and other players were afraid of injury and the Bruins stole the Cup.
That is the unbiased truth of the matter. Honestly,
to me it does not matter if a Canadian or American team wins the Cup as long as
the best team is given a fair chance by having refs call ALL the penalties so
that the real hockey players can display their talent! My favorite teams in
the NHL include Canadian and American teams—four from each country. Boston
In getting back to Duncan Keith, since he purposely injured Sedin and did not get a stiff enough suspension I am going to pull down his pants. In my opinion, he should not merit any consideration this year for the Norris, and he was fortunate to have been given the trophy during the Blackhawks Stanley Cup year—2009-2010. In the Stanley Cup year Toews, Sharp and Hossa had a better plus-minus than Keith, while last year Keith was minus-1 for the year—utterly brutal! Among the regular players on the team last year with better plus-minus included Toews (plus-25), Kane, Hossa, Seabrook, Bolland, Bickell, Campbell (plus-28), Stalberg, Dowell, Skille, Pisani, Hjalmarsson, Frolik, Cullimore, Boynton and Scott! No genuine Norris Trophy-quality defenseman goes from winning the trophy one year to going minus-1 the following year—a plus-minus which was one of the worst on the entire Blackhawk team! What a joke! Clearly, Keith is over-rated. This year he has improved I admit but in plus-minus he is currently 53rd in the league.
Who are better defensemen than Keith this year? Some include (and perhaps not in exact order) Shea Weber, Kris Letang, Brian Campbell, Chara, Erik Karlsson, Lidstrom, Ryan Suter and Alex Pietrangelo. Should I add Michael Del Zotto, Dan Hamhuis, Kevin Bieksa, Ian White, Dan Girardi and Kevin Shattenkirk to the list?
Finally, let us have a couple of good, hard, and deserved laughs at Duncan Keith as he is undressed by two different players.
First, Lee Stempniak of the Flames makes Keith look like a minor-league player in the following video. Maybe Keith was high on something or perhaps he ate a bacteria-ridden chicken or turkey sub and was having trouble playing due intestinal cramps and diarrhea? This one took place on
