mooby Posted January 9, 2018 Share Posted January 9, 2018 I don’t normally start posts on here so bear with me. Especially if this is a topic that has been beaten to death. The question is, are we too hard on our team? Especially this year. I know if I take a step back I am guilty of this. In certain games I’ve yelled at my TV “Get rid of Nilson, Marky, Eriksson, Edler… trade for xxx yyyy whatever.” Yes we have player performance and team performance issues. It isn’t an overnight fix to get us in a level of compete for the cup. Most of us all know that. Yet still, (and I am speaking for myself more than anyone else)we forget that when the game is on. Does our level of devotion to our team actually perpetuate the god awful and borderline slanderous Vancouver media? Adding more pressure on the team and the individual players that are singled out? Would we be so critical if we got the cup in 2011? Or has that led to us having less patience than other fans? Sorry if this is a jumble of thoughts. I’d just like to know people’s opinions. I’ve been a die hard Canucks fan my entire life. That will never change. Sure a loss is depressing, but since I was a kid no matter what was going on I always had those guys that get out on the ice for us. I’m proud of my home city of Vancouver, proud of my home team. I know most if not all on here are too. Does that pride translate in to unrealistic expectations? The point of NHL hockey is to entertain the fans. With the likes of Brock, JV18, Stetcher the past few games… we are being entertained. We are also being shown that there is hope for the team we love. Thanks for letting me vent and ask questions!
