Neither of them are Toronto writers.
Robert Tychkowski is an Edmonton Sun writer. Edmonton has hated Vancouver for a long time. No big deal.
Bruce Garrioch works for the Ottawa Sun and surprise surprise he's a Sens homer.

Neither of these articles are that bad really.


This clearly shows the jealousy that we bring to all of Canada for being the only "contending", consistent Canadian team for the past 4 years.
Edmonton literally sucks. The fans, the team, the management, the rink, and the city in general.

What a joke. I live in T.O. and the sun is a garbage paper anyway. They just recently re-added a sunshine girl to the second page as well to accompany the one on the second last. Two sunshine girls in one paper sounds grand, but that's the only reason why I would even pick it up. The reading material is a total waste of time, and its poorly written. The Toronto Star is a much better paper IMO. I take this article with a grain of salt. These jealous buffoons have nothing better to say. "I know lets bad mouth this years, and last years best Canadian team because Um, um, um, we have nothing else negative to say about the Toronto maple laffs." Idiots...

I feel sorry for them. Nobody likes to sit idly in their office with nothing to do, and with their respective teams failing to make the playoffs, they have to desperately find something to write about it.

Hm... on second thought, no, I don't feel sorry for them, they're just whiners because their team has failed yet again.

What the h3ll is a granola tavern anyway? It's clear this arse has never been past the rockies...and I'm pretty sure the Sedin's pass more than 6 Starbucks on the way the the rink. The second "journalist" makes Ottawa sound like it's uncivilized.

Once again sports writers proving the words "sports" and "writers" are rarely seen together. What the hell is a "granola tavern"? And if they're so terrible why are all the examples of bad Canucks at least twelve months old. And if it's bad to have warm weather than 85% of the teams should be written out of the cup. Sun Media continues to reach new lows in stupid.

This is Vancouver's team first and foremost. If the rest of Canada wants to be a part of this magical run in 2012, then I welcome them with open arms. I'm also rooting for the Sens to do well and would love it if both Canadian teams faceoff in the Stanley Cup Finals.

All the hate means nothing to me, as I can guarantee one thing, they wish they were in our shoes and are legit contenders to win it all. People say things when their own teams are struggling and only to say the exact opposite when their on top of the world.

These articles are some of the worst written pieces of journalism that I have ever read. Emotions clearly got the better of them and it screams jealousy.

It's funny how a handful of sport writers make it sound extremely harsh. Apparently over 70% of Non CAnuck fans in Canada was cheeting for VAncouver. Over 80% of Flames OIlers fans cheering for VAncouver Over 70% of Leafs fans, over 93% of Senators fans and 51% of Habs. Don't let stuff like this get to you. It's all good. It's all for being the best team in the NHL. I see in 5 years, teams around the leauge will be slamming Edmonton for purposly sucking in order to get those 1st picks.

Players Nikolaj Ehlers have been compared too by the fan base of the Vancouver Canucks.

 

1 Pavel Bure

2 Markus Naslund

3 Nathan Mackkinon

4 Jonathan Drouin.

5 Jonathan Tavares

combine results.  Ehlers 5'11 162 lbs of solid rock.

7 years...


The cheapshot Canucks are the dirtiest players in the league always injuring people with clean hits
The cheapshot Canucks are the cleanest team in the league and depend on powerplays
The cheapshot Sedin Sisters could never play for the Hawks (why would they ever want 2 scoring title winners)
The cheapshot French Canucks will bite when you try to jam your hands down their throats against the glass
The cheapshot Canucks are lesser players because the weather is warmer
The cheapshot Canucks are lesser Canadians because they live in Vancouver
Everyone in the league hates the 'cheapshot Canucks' because..

They are a better team

Some of you guys need to grow a thicker skin. This isn't our first rodeo. You'd think at this point we would have learned to dismiss the nonsense that is written specifically to provoke a reaction (i.e. trolling).

Canucks fans are easy targets, and posting this crap here and getting all riled just makes it worse.

It's a vicious cycle - They write the articles, fans react, then that reaction feeds their next story. STOP GIVING THESE IDIOTS AMMO.

This is going to be a long run. There will be plenty more of these cheesy articles popping up along the way. Learn to ignore it or your just going to make it worse.

These Canadian media types have done a helluva job building this "pro wrestling heel" image for the Canucks.

It's good to see that they haven't lost their motivation.

We should support all the Canadian teams.
