Speculation and Truth.

Sorry, didn't know which forum to post this in but it's EXTREMELY annoying to see posts like

"Doan is a Prima Donna"
"Doan has set enough deadlines already"
"Justin Schultz wanted to go to Vancouver and Gillis screwed it all up"
"Luongo wants to go back to Florida and won't accept a deal to anywhere else, he's handicapping us"

This is all SPECULATION created by Twitter Insider wannabe's and by insider's looking to stay relevant.

Doan has never physically said "I will sign by ___ date" until his agent came out and set the September 15th deadline. So no, he has not set "many deadlines". The HockeyyInsiderr's and Darren Dreger's of the world did for him, trying to get their daily fix of relevance. Doan can take as long as he wants to, it's his life and his family decision.

Justin Schultz never once said anything about wanting to become a Canuck. He wanted to get playing time, and a good opportunity to hone his skills and improve. The "insider's" of the world made it all believable that he was a lock for the Canucks, and we all convinced ourselves through extensive discussions that there was no way he wanted anything else but to play at home. Show me an interview where he specifically stated playing in Vancouver was his priority? Or even a factor at all?

Luongo has never once even said he only wants to go back to Florida. In fact, quite the contrary, he has stated multiple times that he's willing to do what it takes to help the team. So get that out of your head.

I hate seeing players being tarnashed or bashed for something that has nothing to do with them, or speculation that is created by people who have no clue what's going on. Put yourselves in their shoes for a moment and realize that moving your whole family, your whole life to a completely different city isn't a decision that's made in a day, especially just because a fan base is getting impatient.

What really gets under my skin is when you see articles like that in the newspapers, or the supposed insiders on twitter or whatever feeding off all these false speculations.

When you got people like hockeyyinsiderr and samjam, speculation from Henrik's butcher becomes truth.

Shane Doan is overrated. Good player but one team will be very disappointed with his price tag.

The hype is a pissoff. *leads to all these "insiders" making the dumb believe their crap

Meh. That's just the way it goes. As long as you're smart enough to recognize the HI's and samjams of the world as useless ..., you'll be fine.

Actually, that's what I thought this thread was going to be about when I first clicked on it. I had some examples ready myself, such as There, They're and Their.....Then and Than.... Bias and Biased, etc., etc....

BTW: Good post Hank. I agree with you.
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!

Just wait until you figure out that the overwhelming majority of all media, be it TV, newspapers, radio, etc. are mostly speculation and opinion that they would just as soon have you beleive is the truth.

When I read the thread title, I though that's what this thread was about.

Are you CRAZY??? Trade Green for ONE first round pick?? He's restricted after this season.... He WILL get an offer sheet for 7-8 million from a number of teams regardless if he plays another minute for us or not. That offer sheet would be worth 4 first round draft choices.


Some fans overrate their players, and then there is this guy.

I don't know what you're trying to say but if it's that Jason Botchford isn't in line to win a Pulitzer Prize then you're dead wrong! Gaborik did buy that house!

Yup.

I have, (to my astonishment) read several CDC posts to the effect of "I blame AV for this lost".....
