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

These threads are amusing but there must be something else to discuss. :picard:

Doubtful. One of the comments on TSN was that Doan wouldn't come to Vancouver, because he doesn't know how to dive...

The rest of the hockey world will continue to hate the Canucks. Personally, I'm not losing any sleep over it.

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!

Who cares what other fan bases think of our Canucks. There are a dozen teams that I can't stand to watch win one measly game. If the Bruins get rid ofLucic, Marchand or Chara. I won't hate them any less. I'll just hate the teams they end up on more.

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.

As long as Kesler keeps diving, nothing will change.

Nope. I've talked to fans of other teams that have said they won't cheer for the Canucks unless we had a massive turnover of players and a change in coaching and management staff. I don't know why, but that's just the way it was stated to me.

I think most fans will cheer for their own team. As for cheering for other teams when your team is out, I think it's more of "well, i don't really care who wins, but i would rather see that team win because of x..." (at least for me anyways).

And I don't really care for nonchalant support like that. Actually, I don't really care who other people supports. All I care is if my team wins. If Doan makes us better, then awesome. End of story.

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.


This is an interesting question. Yet another intangible and positive reason to get Doan. Its all these little things that add up to a stanley cup.

I'm firmly in the "who cares?" category. Not that there is much chance of it happening anyhow.

Adding Doan will add to our "douchery" quotient by about 40%, so I would say NO ..

I think the famous quote by Caligula perfectly sums up my thoughts, "Let them hate us, as long as they fear us." Now Caligula may not be the best example for us, as he was arguably quite a douche, but I think the point still stands.

Why would any die hard canuck fan give too S***'s what the rest of the league and their fans think. you actually want to be embraced by other teams fans? I prefer it the way it is, makes for a better rivalry.

If the NHL "wanted" Doan to get a cup they missed a golden opportunity this last spring.

My God, why are (some) Canuck fans so sensitive and consumed with these ridiculous "why do they hate us" threads?

Why do some of you have such a strong desire to be liked by the rest of the league? Why does it matter to you what fans and media of the other teams think?

Seriously, why do you care?

He's met with Philly and the Rangers, and is going to Montreal today. He's not coming here, so let's drop it already.

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.
