Kings players on which Canucks defenseman comes to mind

Bieksa Canucks MayorsManorLast hour we posted some Word Association with seven members of the LA Kings, where they took on four big names from the Vancouver Canucks.  As always, there were some very interesting answers.

Now, let’s go in a slightly different direction.

We threw a twist into things and asked “When you hear ‘Vancouver defenseman,’ which player comes to mind and why?”

Here’s what several guys had to say…

Dustin Brown – “Dan Hamhuis. Playing with Kopi, he’s always matched up against us. He’s pretty solid and is hard to play against, in the sense he’s always in really good position and doens’t make a lot of mistakes.”

Kyle Clifford – “Kevin Bieksa. He’s the sheriff.”

Keaton Ellerby – “Jason Garison. I played with him for a long time and even lived with him for a while.”

Colin Fraser – “Bieksa. He’s tough to play against and he’s annoying.”

Dwight King – “Bieksa. He’s been there a while and he’s a guy that’s good at both ends of the ice, so you notice him out there.”

Alec Martinez – “Hamhuis. He’s a good puck mover for them, and he’s been a staple on their blue line for a while. So, he’s obviously a real good player for them. There’s a few more too. Garrison, he’s got a big shot.”

Jake Muzzin – “Beiska. He’s always in the media.”

Jordan Nolan – “Beiska. I just always know when he’s out there, in every way possible. He’s big and he’s physical. He gets in your face and probably a little annoying too.”

Justin Williams – “Mean face, Bieksa”

Back to Ellerby for a quick second though. Not only does he know Garrison, he has some plans for him as well.

“Oh probably,” he said, when asked if there will be any chirping between the two tonight. “He cracks me up. So, we’ll see what he has coming (for me), it might be pretty funny. I’ll get something worked up for him too. I’ll probably write down a few things in the hotel room and throw them out there.”

While not all guys put pen to paper, at least one of his Ellerby’s teammates is also storing up some one-liners.

“I definitely don’t write things down,” said Fraser. “But, I’ve certainly thought of some things in my head. If you know a guy and you have a little ammo on him, within in good taste of course, I like to think of those things a little early. You just have to do your homework sometimes and put it in the back of your mind.”

And now we have an idea for a whole new series here on MayorsManor – Inside the Mind of Colin Fraser.

    ‘Inside the Mind of Colin Fraser’ – that sounds good to me, with visuals by Justin Williams. I’m pretty sure he actually made the ‘Mean Face’ when he said his answer, right?
