Magnezone is probably the best counter against B-Kyurem without Earth Power.
W-Kyurem seems to be better than B-Kyurem: titanic Special At., STABed Ice Beam and Dragon Pulse/Draco Meteor, and Fusion Flare, that brings MUCH better coverage that Fusion Bolt. With Outrage, it will devastate pink blobs. Add Turboblaze and it will kill every single PKMN with one or two blows.
W-Kyurem - Uber
B-Kyurem - OU or Uber
How does B-Kyurem not automatically warrant ubers status?

If ferro switches out, whatever comes in will probably die or take a truckload. If ferro stays in, it will die. Theorymon also provided a stall breaking example yesterday in a pinch situation.
So yeah don't completely rule out freeze shock. It's not a good move, but it's not unviable.
Freeze Shock is simply good as a filler. It has it's situations where it can boss but otherwise it won't work all to well unless you make a set revolving around it (and that'd be a waste). In situations like you said: when a team has no mon with protect OR a wall that resists ice it'd do a truckload and a half. Meaning that it'd be a pretty good filler just for the sheer threat it posses if nothing else.
