If the Canucks sign Doan, will the NHL slowly start to cheer for us, not against us?

The NHL seems to love the teams that have an old veteran and great player on the team who has never won that elusive cup. Ray Bourque, Lanny Macdonald, Dave Andreychuk, etc.
Is it possible that if Doan is on our team, we would have less haters and the NHL might possibly favor us in certain ways such as calls on the ice, and media attention? I think it is. Discuss.

Stop with the madness! The NHL referees are professionals! They don't "favor" teams.

I could care less what the rest of the hockey world thinks about my Canucks. I chose to cheer for them and only them and I could care less about 29 other hockey clubs.

Embrace the Hate bud!


Seriously, I love cheering for a team the rest of the hockey world hates. Makes us all... unique in a way. It makes it so that if you see another canuck fan somewhere else in the world, you immediately have this sense of "oh we'll be friends"

Last year in college in California, I wore my Canucks jersey to this class during the first round with like 400 people in it, and then there was this other kid who wore one as well and he happened to sit right in front of me, we talked after the class obviously. Then a few weeks later (the night Bieksa scored in OT to send us to the SCF) I saw him in a bar from across the way and we just sort of ran to each other and hugged (That sounded romantic, but I hope you know what I mean.) and celebrated as much as possible in front of all the Sharks fans. We embraced the hate big time.

Or to embrace the hate more, I would go to this little bar (the owner was a huge sharks fan) and watch the games and that's where all the sharks fans would go to watch and in that first game (7-2 or something), everyone would throw hundreds of peanuts at me when the canucks scored, it just got to a point where I stood up and just waved at them to bring on the peanuts, then some ranch got thrown and there was almost a fight, but we won't go there. I guess I was talking a lot of crap, ESPECIALLY when Rome scored "Oh, was that our bottom pairing D-man who has had two career goals before that just scored?? I think it was". Or in the only game the Canucks lost they had that 5 minute major at the end of the game and were down 3 I think, and they scored 2 but everytime I got up and I said "That's 1" and "That's 2!" and they got incredibly nervous and didn't throw a thing and the owner said I was getting too rowdy, but it was just awesome being the ONLY canucks fan in there. BUT kudos to sharks fans, I would go there to watch the SCF and the owner would watch and he was almost cheering for the canucks with me and there were never hard feeling about it, only during the WCF. I don't think there will ever be a greater span of 2 months in my life than that one.

Anyways, you're probably bored by now, but to answer your question, no it will not make teams like us more, but when we win it will make them ALMOST accept the fact that we won the S.C. Like how I can ALMOST be happy if the Yankees win the world series, because then Ichiro will have a ring.

They will still refer to us as the diving, finger biting and hair pulling team...as haters have nothing better to do than live in the past - plus their teams suck and they hate seeing the Canucks doing better than their teams...

If the Canucks land a player almost every team wants, they'll magically stop hating us? Sounds legit.

If the Canucks just play the damn hockey game, keep their mouth shuts and stand strong, they'll be treated better. If they dive and start biting fingers, then they should expect the hate.

MG wont ever get Doan or a player like Doan. It's against his rules to get a player who sticks up for his teammates.

Yeah. We traded a player like that to Buffalo for Kassian, one of the softest players in the league. Oh wait. No. That's wrong. Kassian is tough, and Cody was a disgruntled little muffin.
