1 year too late, if you ask me.


11 points against the Sharks in round 3 bro.

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.

They don't fight back though... They just take it... 6 punches to the face later, b/c Marchand "felt like it...."

Wouldn't happen to Doan.


I didn't know Daniel was the captain...

Truth. Many people don't know that as new born babies their father took off their wristbands before marking them and got confused and mixed them up. Therefor they have forever lived there lives not knowing that were originally and legally born with the other name :bigblush:

Doan is a cowardly D-bag who has never lead anyone to anything, except his horse to water .. he does the janitorial duties on the ice? .. wow .. how admirable ..



Guy is a turd .. look up his stats for fights .. a real bruiser .. but only when he gets to start the fights .. much like Phaneuf and Jarome .. :picard:

The sisters are wimps.. Have to be together at all times.  W/o the other they can't function.... They will never lead this team to a cup.  That's the bottom line... They'd probably rather win a world championship...


Nice job. I didn't really think it was possible to "out-stupid" your previous post, but you proved me wrong....
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

If Doan and Henrik Sedin were both on the Canuck roster, who would you make captain? Doan for sure.

And then would everyone end up hating Shane Doan the way they did Mark Messier?

Great time tonight at the game... Even spotted an old Pavel Bure jersey and Wendel Clark too.. Great to see the team doing well and the great news of getting closer to the team staying...

Doan is a beast... Really works hard... He's a great captain... Last guy off the ice in pre game.. Runs the drills, clears the pucks out of the net... He's a real leader... Gotta feel good for him.. Seems like a very good guy.

ya they never had an owner that controls the leagues reffing either , till now. never seen so many non-calls in one single series that differs so much than the other series. their success isnt an accident, it has everything to do with selling the team. you watch how swiftly they get swept in the next series, once they are the main event , with everyone watching.

I'm soooo tired of all you people who say that the Sedins aren't leaders! Henrik is a great captain, he's good with the media, always works hard and is a great row model.

I'm even more tired of the people who say that they're weak and soft. Yeah, sure, they don't fight. Nor do they stand in front of the net, but look at them play! Look at all the abuse they get. They get smashed into the ice, and just get up and keep playing!

People don't seem to understand what great people, players and leaders they are.

People on here are sickening. The same people will be crying like little bitches when the Sedins leave and they realize how bad this team is without them.

Who scored for us. Henrik. who single handedly tried his best against LA. Henrik. Who was the best canuck. Henrik


Who scored for us? Nobody. Who singlehandedly tried his best against LA? Schneider. Who was the best Canuck? Schneider.

That said, nobody knew Shane Doan would carry Phoenix to the promised land this year. I'll keep our Henrik over him any day.

But when Sedins do retaliate, people STILL call on them: "Thats not the Sedin's game. They should go back to playing the way they play"

:picard:


Maybe in Van, but everywhere else in the world they are considered the biggest pussies ever to play the game because they won't stand up to anyone. And ya they take a lot and keep bouncing back, but so do punching dummies. Seriously, would it really hurt the team if during game 34 of the season they played like the Hanson brothers for a change? I say no. Imagine Saturday night against the Leafs and Hank goes into the corner and pastes Phaneuf with an elbow that breaks his nose and then spits on him while he's lying on the ice and in the meantime Danny grabs Kessel in a headlock and just pummels him.
I hate to say it, but the game is not going to change to suit the Sedin's, so the Sedin's need to change their game or go back to Sweden where there is more room to duck out of the way.

You don't get it man. You're going into a corner with Hank on your tail, you're not worried because you know you're safe. You're going into the corner with Doan on your tail, you're thinking crap I gotta move fast or this guy is going to cause me some pain.

You may not be safe from your coach though after with Henrik on your tail when he strips you of the puck and quickly passes to his brother for another assist.

Apples and 2 oranges. Henrik and Daniel are special players that come along once a lifetime. Just enjoy it. The day Hanks no longer the Captain means the Sedin era is over.

Kesler was supposed to be our Doan. :mad:

Doan is a good ol Canadian boy who will retire a Yote and has the dubious distinction of kicking Mantrackers ass. That is an A in my books. Stupid Mantracker

Hits, fights, scores... That's what you want as a leader... Not some soft serve like we got... This guy is a leader....

He created that goal the other night blasting the defender off the puck and getting the pass and going to the net...

Would be nice to have someone like The Doaner as our captain.. You can tell this man wants it!


I like Doan, but you're saying that a guy who has led his team to a whopping 50 playoff games in 15 seasons, is what we need in a captain? His teams have missed the playoffs 8 of the 15 years he's been there, and this is the first time in 15 years they've gotten out of the 1st round.

I think he'd a great addition to this team, but Henrik is a captain worthy of respect, while he's no Linden, the way he played after being plastered by Brown showed he's got more heart than most players in the league.

I've been advocating for a player like Doan for a couple of years now.

...but I don't think we need a different captain.

Canucks fans see a player that had a great 1 game, and all of a sudden, "YES YES I RATHER HAVE THAT GUY OVER OUR CAPTAIN." or "I rather have that scrub over an art ross trophy winner."

Noobs everywere.

I disagree with OP pretty much, but are calling Doan a scrub?

Snake Doctor, on 23 May 2014 - 10:41 AM, said:snapback.png

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

Of the three potentially suspendable hits last night, that's the last one that should receive a suspension. Lewis turned at the last second, it was just unfortunate for everyone involved.

Regardless it was a major penalty and put the Coyotes in a huge hole. Anyways... I was directing this towards the OP who thinks we need a captain like Doan when we have an awesome captain in Hank.

Soft serve = 2nd on ironman streak

I like Shane Doan but I would NOT trade him for one of the Sedins, sorry.

When you don't deliver the dirty work, it's easier to stay healthy...


The group that I mtbike with have a saying...If your not bleeding at the end of the ride, you didn't try hard enough. Secondly, whilst the Sedins are great offensively, they are not complete all around players. They are on the ice for 20 minutes a game, that means for 20 minutes a game, none of the opposition is being hit.

+1 if this hit is suspendable...the the NHL is setting the precedent that skating with you're head down then turn away from a player when you see a hit coming, will be the safest way to play in the NHL. It's a joke how many people look at the result but have no idea what happened on the play...shows the lack of knowledge a d experience of this organizations fanbase.

Or "this guy is going to get another suspension for being such a cheap shot D-bag" .. Doan is right up there with Cooke and Torres for douche-baggery to his fellow man .. and a coward to boot ..
