Unforgiven: Ryan Kesler Wants 'No Boo' Clause Added to Contract

In response to the unexpected jolly welcome he received upon his return to Vancouver, Ryan Kesler has demanded an additional condition be added to his contract:

A 'No Boo' clause.

The change comes on the back of the 'No Media' clause that was added to his deal during the Canucks' summertime trade with the Anaheim Ducks.

"Ryan feels his treatment at the hands of Vancouver fans was akin to Bill Cosby with a waitress," said Kesler's agent and thoroughly objectionable human being, Kurt Overhardt.

"And he wants to take the necessary steps to ensure it doesn't happen again."

The clause kicks in immediately and essentially means Kesler cannot booed without his consent. If he is booed without consent, he may instigate a trade to Florida, Carolina or the New York Islanders, where fans are either too few in number to be heard booing or are simply too disinterested to boo.

The clause is very similar to the one enacted by the entire Toronto Maple Leafs roster last Thursday night.
