I am wondering how many people will choose to not watch the Canucks next year if they miss the playoffs this year. Have we become a city that expects the team to make the playoffs every year without any hiccups? Is that realistic of us to expect? I have heard people ragging on the canucks lately saying they suck... it doesn't seem like this city likes losing very much.
 

OK, so you tell me. Does the rapist go to jail? Should Toffoli be suspended?

 

Basically what we are seeing here is that, like you said, the league feels that us getting a win is enough of a punishment to Toffoli. In analogy to the boy's parents being able to buy a lawyer that can set the boy free on a terrible crime such as rape, the league decided to set Toffoli free on the consideration of potential financial loss.

Ya thats what a fan is all about. Stop cheering for them the moment they start to struggle. I think I should start cheering for Toronto now.

Why would anyone boycott the team? We aren't entitled to make the playoffs every year. If that's the expectation then good riddance.
Such a spoiled fan base. Jesus.
A lot of this anger is frustration driven. We've been outstanding for a few years, and have forgotten what it's like to struggle. Doubt I'll stop watching my team because of that.

A little bit extreme for missing the playoffs one year don't you think? Welcome to sports, sometimes your team doesn't play well. Life goes on.

No, I wouldn't be happy and want changes but there were a number of years they didn't make it and I'm still a fan.

So basically, all your really doing with this thread is a defining what a bandwagon fan is.

I wouldn't be happy. But boycotting wouldn't really enter the equation.

If they did something like rebuild with a despicable team culture like Messier / Keenan, then I might boycott. But it wouldn't be based on wins and losses.

Let Canucks management know you want King Richard Brodeur in the Ring of Honour with no further delay! He's been retired for 25 years!

No, that's not what real fans do. You cheer for your team through good and bad times.

What the actual hell kind of topic is this? What kind of ****** fan would boycott a team for not making the playoffs? I think I speak for the majority of people here when I say that I don't care if the Canucks miss the playoffs for the next 25 years. I will always be a Canuck fan.

It's this kind of crap that gives Canuck fans a bad reputation. Boycotting because your team misses the playoffs? What the ****.

Haha, this city doesn't like losing much, but I was born/raised here and this is the best team I've seen. :) If I could hang in through the really bad years, why on Earth would I pack it in now? Nope, I'm a lifer...Lions and Canucks. Like my air and water.

I'll be surprised if there is even a single yes vote.

A lot of posters on CDC tend to overreact to losses, but they're still fans who care about the team and would never desert them, even if they miss the playoffs.
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!

I've spent decades -- since day 1 of the franchise -- cheering for the Canucks when they piled up losing season after losing season. If anyone boycotts the team after one awful year, maybe it's time they boycott life after something relatively insignificant (and inevitable) happens to them in the wider world, too.

Yes, in fact. Here ye, here ye... let it be known by this decree that if indeed, the Vancouver Canucks do not make the playoffs, there shall be absolutely no attendance to any future games by any man or woman. Furthermore, there shall be zero viewers ever watching any future broadcasts.
