Did anyone tune into HNIC radio yesterday? The "legendary broadcaster" Gord Stellick (sp?) used the Larry Murphy in Toronto example several times to talk about how Luongo got the bronx cheer the other night. He talked about it with pretty much every guest that came on.

Also, Bob McKenzie apparently cited the Larry Murphy thing on the quiz last night,too. It is like 6 games in to the season and it has begun already. This anti-Canuck media bias is getting old in a hurry. I am so sick of the Eastern media and how they look at the west in general. (not just Vancouver)

I am happy the Leafs are doing well to start the year. I hope they make the playoffs and have a deep run. There ... is that better hockey gods? ;)

Anyway folks it was a pointless post but I needed to vent nonetheless. Rant over

While I am in complete agreement that the current Canucks should be mentioned with these teams, maybe this is part of the reason for the supposed hate?


Canucks SHOULDN'T be mentioned in the same sentence as the Oilers or Wings until they peel off a couple of championships.

I know why the Vancouver Canucks are hated throughout the league and it isn't only because they have a good hockey team.
Tell me how my ass tastes.

I just saw this video from Oct 8. Canuck players respond to "Most Hated Team" dubbing:

http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/2011/10/ ... cks_hated/

Hmmm... Bieksa, Kesler, Burrows, Lappy.... and perhaps Lou.

Why is it that the most-hated Canuck players happen to be my favorite Canucks? :shock:

How come Blobcat?

Is it because our best players are Swedes, Yanks and flakey Quebecois?

Ot is it because our fairweather, bandwagon jumping fans are cockier than most despite our club's historical lack of success?

Vancouver fans have long been known for taking their booing to ridiculous levels.

Folks here talk about 'Goaltender Graveyard' but there's also the famous 'boo birds' of Empire Stadium.

This city has run more goalies & quarterbacks outta town than any other.

Nah, just more hatred from the biased media.

Mark Spector is an Edmontonian isn't he?

Case closed.

If that was the case, you know the Leafs and Habs fans that made up a huge portion of the crowd in 1972 would be taking credit for it.
