There are many misconceptions on this Canucks forum, mainly towards our captain Henrik Sedin, and his brother Daniel. Please learn the definitions of the words tough and soft before blindly using them to describe two of our best forwards. The word soft is generally used towards our captain, Henrik Sedin. Frankly I'm tired of the ignorance seen in the discussions lately. Henrik Sedin, I believe is currently on the 2nd highest iron man streak and yet most of our Canucks Community is alright with the use of the term soft to describe him. Yes, you could argue because he does not play a gritty game that he is soft, but he is a playmaker/scorer, we pay him to create/score goals, not to hit.

Just because a player doesn't skate around hitting everyone near them like a goon, doesn't mean that player isn't tough, I'd like to think it's the players who constantly get hit and continue to put up points and/or go to the net that are tough. It'd be great to stop this huge misconception seen around the league that the Sedins are soft, starting with our own fans. That's my opinion on the subject, I think of the Sedins more of a Dairy Queen ice cream cake. What's your opinion on the subject?

P.S.
Sorry for all the ice cream references, the weather in Vancouver is heating up and I think my brain is trying to tell me something.

Agreed bro.

I would love if those haters went to work everyday and got punched in the face.

Every player in the NHL is tough from Semin to Lucic. They just happen to be on opposite ends of the spectrum.

I miss Anson Carter too.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

People see someone in one moment of time (replayed over and over on YouTube?) and then they form a quick opinion that sticks. Everything they achieved hasn't just fallen into their lap. Of course they have toughness. Denying their talents and greatness just makes people look silly.

They are "durable" for sure. To be tough (in hockey terms) you have to give as good as you get.

To me it is their inability to fight through playoff checking that has been the disappointment and perhaps gets them labelled as "soft", moreso than the fact they don't play a physical game.

Lets say salaries were the same, anybody want Marchand on their team instead of Henrik? :sick: :shock: :bored:

Didn't think so!

You idiots should stick to WWF and let real men play the hockey games.

And if you think u wanna try and watch a tough guy play hockey > watch 185 lb Henrik hold off 224 lb Seabrook draped all over his back, pivot 270 degree's even with all his weight on him and still have the strength to deftly play with the puck and deliver passes on a dime.

The problem is they let too many big wankers take cheap shots cuz they keep getting embarassed!

Me too. Those things are f***ing cash.

Reason why our captain is called soft is because the last two teams that knocked us out of the playoffs had captains that were very tough (Chara and Brown). People's though process behind this is that since they beat us, we must try to become exactly like them.

That thought process is stupid.

That's the point though, the labeling of the Sedins being soft has to stop with the fans of Vancouver before stopping it elsewhere.

"... inability to fight through playoff checking...", this sounds like what I was hearing on here back in 2008-2009, people claiming the Sedins would not be able to perform in the playoffs because of the checking and such but they proved everyone wrong. They were both PPG players. Henrik has 51 points in his last 52 playoff games played and Daniel has a little less with 46 points in 49 games played. The only season were they weren't PPG players was the year we went to the finals, which is understandable cause of the more games played. My point is they're playoff performance is on par or better then players like Datsyuk and Iginla, so I'd be cautious to say they can't fight through playoff checking.

Henrik stopped being soft after Daniel took an elbow, his comments post game said it all.

Havn't been the biggest Sedin supporter, after the LA series I saw Henrik is ready to win the cup.

And in all honesty watch them play till their 40 winning 3 cups with this team.

Love those haters.

They are tough, but they need to fight back too imo.

They have to do something to deter the opposition from taking them off their game.

agreed..the league respected the way he let brown make him his b****h and came back without whining,but he lost it tenfold with his little b****h payback when dustin was on his knees from a puck and high stick to the face

by tough do you mean chara's 52 pts and +33 or the fact that brown scored as many shorthanded goals as the sedins and kessler combined??????

to mention the sedins in the same sentance as Datsyuk and Iginla shows that you are the normal nuck homer that never played hockey and gets your opinions from the ridiculous van media. compare pk mins and watch the 2 way play of real team leaders to the sedins goal sucking pp and offensive zone mins. as long as this is the canucks "heart" i will continue to be embarrassed to be from bc

To me this is a question of Insanity and Brute Force vs Skill and Intelligence.

I was always taught that NOT flying off the handle and keeping calm and collected in the face of chaos was an ADMIRABLE quality in a person.

Calling out the Twins for being soft is lame as hell.
I even thought they answered the toughness call this season and people would let up.

A good portion of the very best goal scorers in the league have this admirable quality... and yet the piranha fans and the vulture media just love referring to it as a completely negative aspect.

Guess what yo's, being cool and calm is samurai sh** !! ... so if your not down with THAT kinda cool, then buzz off.

Daniel Sedin not punching Marchand out in the finals, was a good comparison in character. Daniel deserved a power play for not flying off the handle. The refs missed this one big time. There are a hundred other players that would have dropped the gloves with that rat face, but only a handful that would think to take a punch in the face for the man advantage.



Call out Euro's for not having grit all that you want, haters. I for one am getting sick of the media trying to convince me that violence and brute force and more admirable qualities than incredible skill and intelligence.

While I'm at it, SCREW the NHL for taking this stance too.
These business clowns (cough*bettman*) don't care about players lives.
The fact that our seasons have taken on a huge serge in career ending hits to our most skilled players is testament to this.

The Sedins, particularly Henrik, have become a lot more physical. In the finals they tried not to lose their cool so they could draw penalties. Plus it isn't a good idea to fight back when there aren't guys on your team to back you up. Considering the team could not do anything offensively 2 of the last 5 playoff rounds Henrik's almost PPG pace is pretty impressive.
Sig too big.

There is no problems with the Sedins. Don't blame them for the L.A series loss. They were the only forwards putting up points! L.A plays a tight checking style, and games 1-3 when Daniel was out Henrik was 1 on 3 or 1 on 4 the majority of the time looking for a pass. Being held and hooked non stop and not getting a call. What I saw from the twins is this series was pure hate. Pure hate in the sense that they are angry for the cup and they want to go for it.

After the OT goal was scored in game 5 the camera cut to Henrik. There was a look of disgust. Anger like I've never seen before. Rage is his eyes. While the team was dissapointed, Hank and Dan were livid. This guy and his brother want to win. They competed harder than most of the Canucks! The rest let us down. They let the Sedins down. No team in hockey can win a cup with two players. You cannot blame the Sedins for any part of the series loss. I've never seen somebody so tough as battle through L.A's clutching and grabbing and still be PPG, and in on 5 of our 8 goals! Daniel as well was PPG and in on 2/4 he was in the line up for!

The Sedins are ready. They are ready to take the cup home. But they can't do it themselves.
Henrik had the anger, the fire in his eyes. Does anyone remember this look?

There are different variations of tough and no, they're not goon tough. But as far as stamina and resilience tough - like no others. One of the points made on the Team awhile ago was how they blow up the Grouse Grind leaving others in their dust. You have to be a different kind of tough for that and that kind actually takes more than simply throwing your body weight around. That kind of tough comes from intense training and dedication year round. It involves mental toughness because, if you let up, you lose it.

The Sedins are naturally gifted but the thing that propels them to a different level is their commitment to the game. Of course they're tough - they're two of the most targeted guys in the game and they still can't be taken out of it.

One of the things I do see developing more in the Sedins is their snarls...because they are skilled players, they've also been rather "polite" on the ice but I see that changing. Still not sure if it's a good thing yet, as it pulls them off their game a bit and I know that's the intention behind it. But they do play with a bit of a nastier edge than in the past and are by no means pushovers.

Treekiller - save it. Your inner troll is shining through.
