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?
Come on herbo..... really ? I think it might have something to do with H Sedin, R Luongo, A Burrows, M Raymond, M Lapierre and R Kesler going down like they've been hit by a 44 slug each and every time they've been touched, complete with a head snap .
Maybe it's the taunting by the French Canadian players that rub some folks the wrong way, or the goalie who has the pouting look of a 12 year old kid and passes the buck quicker than a pervert at a peep show.
Or perhaps it's because we have had guys who pull hair, bite, and cry on tv about how they're being treated by NHL officials. Hey maybe Ryan Kesler's bullshit move in a fight against Andrew Ladd a couple of years ago sours some NHL fans opinions of the Canucks. Trying to slam a guys head into the ice after he dotted you with a clean punch is a classless move in any league.
I am a Canucks fan through and through but there are some guys on this team I don't like and I can sure as hell see why fans of other teams hate the Canucks.
I could write just as bad of a post about the Bruins or any other high profile team in the league.
How about Lucic and the 4 or 5 ridiculous sucker punches he threw last season. Or Chara almost killing someone last year because he got shoved after a goal the night before. Or Horton going after a fan in the walk way.
Or how about the fact 2 Bruins taunted Lappy the day after their coach said he wouldn't tolerate it. Or how about Marchand being far and away the dirtiest cheapest fucker in the final last year (by far). Or how about Boychuk coming close to ending Raymonds career with a horrible cheap shot. Or even better Horton crying in the media because Rome didn't apologise correctly.
How about Peverly with a horrible cheap shot on Beiksa then refusing to fight when challenged. Thorton shooting a puck at luongo during a pre game skate, or the fact Greg Campbells dad basically runs the refs.
The Bruins are every bit as bad and so are most high profile teams.
You think the Flyers or hawks have any less of a "laundry list" from last years playoff?
