It was a different situation with Hodgson. Vigneault threw him under the bus before ever developing any kind of positive relationship.
Agreed. Kesler knows damn well how AV feels about him as a hockey player. He plays on the #1 PK, #1 PP, and often leads all forwards in ice time on any given night. It's very easy to forget the odd negative comment when the coach plays you in such a roll.
