Now that the trade deadline is over, now that our team in place for the playoffs, and now that we are in the home stretch, I challenge this board, myself included, the fans of Vancouver.

Cut the negativity, support this team, whomever is on the ice and be the extra attacker.

We all have a right to critisize as fans, heck I've been one of the most critical, but playoff time is coming. One thing any athlete will tell you, is the fans in the arena, off the ice have an impact. Sports are based on effort, energy and emotion. We can assist in the latter 2.

Positive energy towards this team, support when they are down and need a lift, emotion and feeding their energy levels when they need us in the 'garage' - still call it that, and intimidating other teams through that support has an impact.

We want the boys to win the cup? Well you know who the boys are now, this is the team that will make its run. So let's saddle up and ride with them.

If Eddy has a bad game, well who cares, let's focus on his positives and hope he finds his game.

If Schnieds starts and lets in a bad one let's not hammer him, and start the Lou is better trade schnieds, or vice versa.

If Lou's in net and lets in a bad one, let's lift him, let's stand on our feet and tell him shake it off. We got a cup to win.

If Max takes a bad penalty, if Garrison misses the net, if our PP can't yet find it, if Booth isn't scoring, on an on, let's still get behind them.

Let's help them find that swagger, that cockyness, that in your face game that got us there before by showing them their fans are right behind them

That is ...that We are all Canucks

It's time kids,

Go Canucks Go, and go get that damn Cup

somehow i dont think it matters, it just leads to the collective negativity in the media, twitterverse etc.

do you remember what that run felt like in 2011? the emotion? the elation, well try supporting this team now so we get back there

I dont know if you're old enough but, i remember the old chicago stadium, it made the new chicago stadium sound like a library.

teams were intimidated to go in there because of the noise, those are fans

we can do the same. and its time...

this team has seen and heard so much negativity this year, from lou, to kesler, to pp issues, to edler, to the sedins getting old, to coho vs kassian on and on.

maybe the fans should get up on their feet, give a crap about this team, lift them and tell them, shake out the cobwebs, lets put the crap behind us, and now go win.

there are three factors needed to win a cup

1. Getting hot
2. Getting goaltending
3. Staying healthy


1. Comes from intensity, and emotion, we can help there

2. We have

3. We will have soon with Kesler and just lacking Both.

So fans, our choice to help or complain and sit quietly in Rogers Arena and bitch, or lift our team.

Sorry,bud,but you have yet to enter the real world of performance.

When they suck,they need to get better.

When they do well,they need to get better.

I'm going to flat out disagree with you. Hockey for me is not just about blind faith in my team. It's about analyzing the games, watching individual players, who's hot, who's not, these are just a few of the things that make hockey enjoyable for me.

I will always cheer for my team and hope that they win, but when they play bad, they play bad.

Our guys are professionals and if they can't handle the pressure of one of the best Canadian markets going then they are in the wrong business, or at least in the wrong region for playing.

There are reasons why some players get criticized more than others, and it's because they don't live up to their potential *cough cough, Lou in big games*. Here's the kicker... do we ever criticize Higgins or Hansen when they have a bad game, no? Why? Because they consistently work hard and we as fans know that a bad game will not continue to happen with them. Other players have a history of pooping the bed so they duly experience more criticism.

It seems as though you are blaming us fans for some players lack of performance? I disagree, and I for one will continue to analyze each and every game, each and every player, each and every coach, shift, shot, penalty, etc. etc.

This is what makes hockey fun for a fan. Having said all of this... Edler better show up for the playoffs!

This team is going to surprise a lot of people this year.

NHL standings as of 10:14 est April 06, 2013

1. Chicago
2. Pittsburgh
3. Anaheim
4. Montreal
5. Boston

6. Vancouver



There are officially 5 teams in the NHL with more points than the Vancouver Canucks

I rest my case and the jury finds your arguments to be nonsense.

No please re read my post. I am not blaming the fans for anything other than helping create this aura of negativity around a team that is it...again lets look at the standings


5th overall in the NHL

People talk about this team like we're Calgary and we are in 5th, despite an underperforming year with our second line all but out of the lineup.

And I also said as fans we have a right to critisize, we pay for tickets, jerseys, center ice subscriptions, $10 beers and $4 hotdogs but that time has passed and why add to negativity now?

Why not lift the team, why not when they are down, lift them? You'd rather sit in the library and bitch? or get loud and get them to pick their heads up and fight like Higgins and Hansen.

Few people have played a sport in front of a large audience. I have, and I can tell you this, players hear it, they feed off it. We have choice, contribute positively to that, or negatively, I choose and challenge vancouver fans to do the same


P.S

I can't really believe people on here are arguing about cheering for a team. That bitching is better in life.

Oh well good on ya!

How did we chear for athletes in the olympics? how did we push the speed skaters, the hockey team when they were behind? Did people in vancouver go silent and bitch?

no they got loud...they pushed them, filled them with the emotion of the crowd to find it, to dig deep and push harder, to burn to win.

why did we do that? because inside we know we have an impact

if we have an impact to those athletes, why do we think we dont have an impact on these guys? our beloved canucks?

and if we assume we can have a positive impact (ie olympics) well we can obviously have the counter, a negative impact, so lets choose the positive and help will these guys to a cup.

thats all - lift em up

Well...you tried. Some people you just can't get to. I understand where you were coming from and i agree. It's those that don't realize they are being negative or want to "over analyze" that just wont change.

So, is this a thread about cheering in the Rogers Library or about talking hockey on the CDC forum? I agree that the players love to play in front of a loud stadium and when playoffs happen I have no doubt the place will be screaming, but if our guys poop all over the ice... are you saying that we are not allowed to come on to CDC, Twitter, FB, etc to talk hockey?

I think the OP is trying to say let's stop nitpicking every little thing and over analyzing and being negative. Sure we can point out issues but don't be so negative about it. We're a team.

poop over the ice?

6th overall is not poop over the ice

and all the is negativity on here, spreads to the media, fans, and translates into the library on georgia

I have watched probably about 85% of the home games this year, seen 5 live

I dnt think i have heard the fans start the go canucks go chant when down (and loud) even once, instead they act like their father just died and need to weep.

i remember how the fans were behind this team in 2011, regular season and playoffs

stop bitching, start cheering and start helping or jump off maybe its time for fans to be fans and not bitch

No, there's only one factor in winning a cup: 16 wins in the playoffs.

However, if you're going to stand by that list, I'll say that you're one item short. Coaching is as much a factor as any one of those three in terms of winning the cup (and in fact, is probably a contributing factor to the other three).

People who label others as bandwagoners, people who tell other people "how" to cheer for their team, "how" they should act or what they should wear to "support" their team, people who only want to hear positive thoughts and don't want to read about how the team can do better - these are people who are insecure and uncomfortable within their own skin.

I'll support my team the way I choose, thank you very much. You can choose to support your team the way you want to, and I won't judge you on it as long as you don't try to force your beliefs on me. I'll also be quick to point out where I think the team can do better, because identifying that there is a problem is the first step to fixing it; denying or ignoring a problem won't solve anything.

Go Canucks Go.

no 16 wins means you won the cup

there are factors and go into that outcome

the dependent variable is the cup, the independent are 1,2 and 3, and yes clearly coaching has an impact on the first two, coaches have no impact on health.

so i disagree with you in regards to the specifics of your comment but yes of course coaching matters

I'm still confused with your post. Edler playing atrocious for practically the entire year, Garrison missing the net, Lappy taking ridoculous penalties that hurt the team, these are all aspects of the game that we as fans can make go away by being positive?

I agree that when playoffs start a loud arena can pump up our players and help them work and push harder, but how will the aforementioned parts be remedied by us fans?

If we're in the middle of a big playoff game and Lappy takes a horrible penalty and we lose because of it, are you saying that we should just repress our emotions and say, "don't worry about it Lappy, WE LOVE YOU!" Gotta take off the blinders and see the game for what it is.

When it comes to Lou/Schneid trade talk, this will not go away until one of them are gone, that's called reality. Meez thinks that it will lessen now that the trade deadline is over, but to get so upset about people "bitching" (as you call it) is too bad for you I guess. I think maybe your Canuck positive rose coloured glasses have made you build up a too much repressed emotions from over the years. Let it out man, let it out!

its all in the same there champ, if your mindset is to bitch and complain good on ya

i won't let you back on the bandwagon if we go on a run, i'll say no you should go and complain and bitch in the corner about all that is wrong with a team that is going to finished top 7 in the NHL

the world is ending, the sky is falling, lets complain about at team that oh damn didnt get the pres trophy the 3rd season in a row and was missing a selke winner and its second best center

lets find any little thing to complain about because thats what we canucks fans are, spoiled little whiners

ok

thats your choice.

this is my team and i'm 100% behind each player now because this is what he got going in, and ya know what? Players aren't programmed robots, they make mistakes, teams lose games, thats sports

canucks fans seem to think unless ya win 82 straight followed by 16 straight that the team is crap and should be bitched about, even then Im sure they'd argue 'something is missing for next year'

I am a canucks fan and I choose to see this team through win, lose, errors or not

you can choose to complain

The criticism on CDC does nothing to make the team better. If you think it does you are fooling yourself. This is essentially a place for people to discuss their team. Nothing more, nothing less. If you think a player or anyone from management spends one second reading the drool on here you are out of your mind.

Cutting out negativity leaves positive void of credibility.

Just like cutting free speech bottles and suffocates the truth, leaving Chinese newspapers with fake news (for instance)

If the team is good, lets celebrate.

If the team sucks, berate.

Negativity is the foundation of the positive. Can't have one without the other.

Be positive in life, but cognizant of problems.

Passion = energy. The + and - is all part of the equation

Seriously this thread reminds me of people who are all positive about something and then don't want anyone to give anyone the freedom to criticize the same issue. That's great the OP wants to be all positive, but dude either you just came from a therapy session or you just don't want to accept reality and grant people the right to say what they want... it's a public forum. That's the whole idea.... you with know where people talk and discuss stuff...

!Go Canucks Go! :towel: :towel:


I agree to some degree. However, re the parts I've highlighted: players DO get hot/cold...to expect them to perform 100% and beat everyone all the time would be unreasonable, no? So why don't you extend that to Lu?

Was the team firing on all cylinders at the time? No. Were the refs doing their part to protect him, as they do other goaltenders? No.

To analyze and criticize is fine...but, for some, it's every damn game. And the rest of us only ask to hold those assessments to make an overall assessment (based, partly, on guys HAVING off games/periods and it not necessarily representing a bad PLAYER/team). Some people jump off the bridge at a loss, only to climb back up to it to do it all over again. If it's painful, move on. You have to eventually say I've had enough if it isn't working for you - to continually gripe and whine isn't fair to those of us who do take it in stride, as part of the game.

Many this season have written us off because we have been stumbling at times. Haven't won convincingly. I, for one, have believed that it's a matter of timing and that we have good players in place who may just start to click at the right time. That they're slow out of the gates and the shortenened season may actually benefit them in that. My thinking makes me happy, so why is it wrong?

And Higgy and Hansen DO bring it and work hard. I think Lu has also.

I'm with ya OP! I, personally, always try to stay positive. Sure if they have a bad game, I'll be the first to say so but I don't go nuts trying to change or fix everything. It's a game that I watch for enjoyment...not to get all worked up or stressed out about...my job does enough of that for me.

I wish this place was about positivity, but the negativity will always be here. Canucks media and fans love to throw their goalie under bus and then bury them in our graveyard 6 feet deep.

Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things. - Winston Churchill

To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing. - Elbert Hubbard

The greatest threat to freedom is the absence of criticism. - Wole Soyinka

Every human being is entitled to courtesy and consideration. Constructive criticism is not only to be expected but sought. - Margaret Chase Smith

I much prefer the sharpest criticism of a single intelligent man to the thoughtless approval of the masses. - Johannes Kepler

I like criticism. It makes you strong. - LeBron James

A state that suppresses all freedom of speech, and which by imposing the most terrible punishments, treats each and every attempt at criticism, however morally justified, and every suggestion for improvement as plotting to high treason, is a state that breaks an unwritten law. - Kurt Huber

We can do things the cheap way, the simple way, for the short-term and without regard for the future. Or, we can make the extra effort, do the hard work, absorb the criticism and make decisions that will cause a better future. - Mike Rounds

He only profits from praise who values criticism. - Heinrich Heine

Persecution is the first law of society because it is always easier to suppress criticism than to meet it. - Howard Mumford Jones

The dread of criticism is the death of genius. - William Gilmore Simms

No team is sooooooo perfect that they are worthy of blind faith. If your criticism is constructive then that means you are interested and that you have seen room for improvement. Whining about bad reffing and blowing up the roster up after a bad game, only shows that you are a short term thinker. There's gonna be ups and downs along the way just like life.
