Hmmm my answer is no one. It's just a game and it's about winning and getting paid and doing what it takes to accomplish both. What does class even have anything to do with it? It's like because you are Canandian you have to do everything honourably as that is the Canadian way! Gimme a break. The Canucks are just as bad offenders as the rest of the league. Take off your rose coloured glasses and see athletic competition for what it is, a business. You want to watch guys who play because they love and respect the game? Head down to your local rink and watch the beer leaguers.

you can either win with class or not.

It's like because you are Canandian you have to do everything honourably as that is the Canadian way! Gimme a break. The Canucks are just as bad offenders as the rest of the league.

this has nothing to do with being Canadian lol its about hockey and losing respect for someone after they do something, Also people have already stated kesler like 10 times so we can see there are things wrong with the canucks.

Despite what you may think keith's elbow to danny's head isn't a hockey play or Marchant taking out Salo's knees or steckle elbowing Crosby in the head

I can't believe Canucks fans loss respect for Kesler..... way ta go bunch of noobs. You guys see a pattern here?

CBC hates Canucks
TSN hates Canucks
Everyone hates Canucks
Espn hates Canucks.

Then all of a sudden only one player made the diving list and none other then a VAncouver Canuck now we all hate him?
Ok, answer this. Is Ryan Kesler the only diver in the NHL? If you say no, and you lost respect for Kesler, then your a moron.

November 20th 2013, Canucks just lost their 5th straight game. Last time this happened the Canucks, they missed the playoffs.

Unless, of course, people who have lost respect for Kesler either:

1) Chose to not respect any diver, ever, regardless of jersey, or

2) Feel like he, injury or not, tried to accomplish too much last year, beyond his means at the time, by failing to utilise his linemates effectively, regardless of who they were or their talent level. Passing creates open ice. Period.

Not everybody follows the (un)popular press opinion, many are intelligent enough to create their own.

By the way, I'm not a fan of trashing players that wear my teams jersey, but my love for the Canucks goes far beyond Keslers tenure here. You had better believe that true fans of any team retain the right to hold players accountable for their actions while representing the city and team the fan has lived in and supported longer than any specific player has ever done.

Losing respect implies that I had respect for the player in the first place. Many of the players I have no respect for never had my respect to begin with.

What did Zach Boychuk do? Waste Carolina's first-round pick in 2008?

People don't even have a good reason for hating Crosby. 'Oh, he complains too much!' Do you also hate on half the league? :rolleyes: Most players complain DO complain; bad called, missed call, so on. Not to mention Crosby has been getting beat up during the play and after the whistle since his Rimouski days because he's always been the best player. If you can't beat him on the score sheet, try and beat him by playing cheap. If anyone has the right to complain, it's him.

People always hate on the best, same reason the Canucks as a team are hated so much.

TooToo for his crosscheck to Bourdon's face. What a joke.

Peverly for his 2 handed slash to the back of Bieksa's leg

Shawn Thornton for being a tool.

Ah yes, the classic jealousy argument.


If I hate on player X, it must be because I'm jealous. Of course that means I would have to hate every single player in the league. And if I hated every single player in the league, why would I watch hockey?

To all those saying Canucks fans themselves shouldn't be losing respect for a Canucks player is just odd.. In the L.A. series for example, I always had a ton of respect for Henrik, but when he stood up for his brother and b*tch-slapped Brown, I gained even more respect for him. In contrast, when Kesler was injured and all he did instead was flop all over the ice, I lost some respect for him.

Yeah we see Doughty, Brown and (insert any other high-profiled player here) dive all the time, but as a Canuck fan I hold higher standards for our players. After the 2011 run, Kesler had garnered so much respect around the Canucks fanbase and even some around the league. (Seriously there was no sadder moment than seeing Kesler crying and breaking down in an interview). I wore my Kesler jersey in pride, and I still do (if there was an occasion to wear). It was just the fact that he was making it completely obvious and was prying for any calls we could get (yeah the reffing was atrocious but the diving made it worse)..

This happens with players in every team, but now that he was on that acclaimed diving list, the Canucks are sure going to have an even more difficult time with the refs. Kesler just added some very not needed attention to the hatred the league has on this Canucks team. He's certainly not the worst diver out there, but now with the uncertainty of the season starting, that's all we have left to remember him by for now. He's still one of my favourite players on the team, and when he focuses on his game he's the most determined and successful guys out there.

(Everyone else I lost respect for has been mentioned, they have just lost my respect so much I don't feel like mentioning their names)

I don't hate him just because he complains, I hate him for garbage like this :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGFjjAQJv20

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7uB7EE2_7M

If Crosby wants to act like a tough guy, he's going to get treated like one. Slashing Bryz after the whistle and then hiding behind the referee is being a coward. Punching Giroux only once the referee is holding on is even more cowardly.

My list of hated players :

Everyone on the Penguins
Marchand
Bolland
Doughty
Richards
Brown
