Henrik Sedin says team is tough enough

Henrik Sedin is fed up with questions about the Canucks toughness. Sedin rarely gets angry, but after the Los Angeles Kings beated the Canucks 4-1 on New Year’s Eve and also when asked how he felt about the Kings pushing the Canucks around, Henrik responded in anger saying “You know what, I’m pretty tire of that question.” “We won the Presidents’ Trophy last year and went to the seventh game of the [Stanley Cup] Final,” he added. “We didn’t lose the final series because we were pushed around, we lost because we couldn’t score. We are as tough as anyone else. We are taking hits, giving out hits and that’s the bottom line. That’s my answer to that one.” The Kings were trying to play physical against the Canucks as much as possible. The Kings laid 30 hits of the Canucks, including 9 by Kings captain Dustin Brown. The Canucks recorded 22 hits in the game. So do you think Henrik Sedin is right that the Canucks are tough enough?
