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

92 posts in this topic

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.

All the other Canadian teams are just extremely jealous. So they try to find anything to bring us down.

We are NOT diving or chirping more than any other team. It's just because we are so good they cant stand us.

Who cares if the rest of the league doesn't cheer for us? As long this city is behind the team, that's all that matters. Plus Im not sure if signing Doan is such a good thing. He will cost atleast $5M plus and that would put us over the cap, which means we would have to dump Lu for next to nothing. We also have guys like Burrows and Edler who need to be re-signed with a significant raise. Doan's contract would be a burden IMO

Bring Doan and bring the hate, makes us stronger. Exciting but I'm afraid it's not gonna happen. MG has no success with big names unless they are past their "best before" date like Sundin.

If that's true, I can't see the Rags making too serious a push now that they've added #61. If Doaner wants a cup before he hangs up the skates, he won't be going to MTL, either. I wouldn't count MG out just yet, but, if Philly was willing to break the bank for Weber, they've got the cap space more than VAN to make it worth Doan's while to move to PA.

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

Actually, I read that part of the draw for the Rangers is that Doan might want to play with Nash. Also, they do still have cap room and he prefers an Eastern conference team rather than play Phoenix several times each year (according to the Bleacher Report).

if Doan signed with Chicago or Boston, would you start to cheer for them? I wouldn't, and I wouldn't expect fans of other teams to suddenly start liking the Canucks more... it's not really an issue, the team that's popular to hate changes every little while depending on whoever's at the top of the standings.

Did I miss something. What's with all the Doan talk? Is their a rumour that he is coming here?

don't get me wrong, i'm all for shane doan (despite previous criticisms of his personal beliefs' effects on dressing room chemistry)

but am i the only one who gets the impression that 90% of the rabble in this market demanding shane doan on a silver platter couldn't tell you who the captain of the coyotes is?

How many games have you watched lately? You see the refs favor one team all the time. Last year it was Boston (obviously did you see the games?) and this year it was L.A. and don't say I am being a homer. I will openly agree that the worst reffing was in the L.A. v Coyotes series. It was ridiculous. I'm also not saying it's the refs decision, it's the league. Look at the past 5 cup winners and they have all been perfect for the league. Another "tip" of this is the teams starting in Europe always win the cup. Coincidence? I think not.

I hope not. I like being the most hated, and when we win our cup, SUCK ON THAT, haters.

i don't mind the team being hated, it's the reasons they're hated for that bothers me, and the legitimacy of those reasons especially.
