"I don't think there's any team that has more points than we have over the past year and a half, so I find it hard to think we're overrated in any sense, but that's their opinions, not ours."

- Cory Schneider on 24 per cent of players in a Hockey Night In Canada poll voting the Canucks the NHL's most-overrated team.

Henrik said last week that they got the poll and the whole team put it in the garbage. That does explain some of the skewed results, but Cory says it well.

“No doubt buoyed by their timid Stanley Cup Final performance against Boston, the lack of testicular fortitude from their star starting goaltender and the usual Sedin jealousy/Burrows loathing that permeates these polls.”

The thing I find most interesting out of this is the "Sedin jealousy" bit. I can buy that argument a lot more than I can any scenario where the Sedins are actually disliked. I can see some guy like Bolland saying "Dammit, I'm a good Canadian kid... I should be way better than those Swedish twins... I hate that they have waaay more talent and class than me... this sucks... I'll only ever be paid like a defensive depth guy. Crap." I suppose the more you think about it, the more this whole story seems like jealousy.

The more you think about it, the more it seems like someone scraping the bottom of the barrel for a story.

I don't know if the Canucks are the most hated but I know the fans are frequently voted among the worst in sports.

So Kassian owns a guy, then owns a guy.

The hit was similar to the one Keith threw on Sedin. It wasn't clean. But it looks worse than it is because of the way Kassian spins off of the guy. The camera angle doesn't let me see if he jumped or if he left his feet as a result of the contact.

Don't care either way. I like that we have a guy on the team that isn't going to tuck tail and take a beating just because he deserves one. :P

More regurgitation from last year...be interesting to see how the boys react...best just to shut the fuck up this year and let the W's speak for themselves....I'm sure AV will keep a tighter reign this year after learning last year that lips can sink ships....

Fuck the other teams, this isn't a ballerina beauty contest, I don't care if we are the most hated, as long a we win it.....anything it takes...including sacrificing a few CC virgins to the Hockey Gods™!!!!! 8-)

Anyone else find it funny that in the wonderful piece of journalistic excellence had a Hawks fan talking about the canucks hiding behind officials? No Hawk, say like Duncan Keith, would ever do such a thing.

Top half in the league in fighting majors suggests otherwise as well.

We're no longer the most hated. I think the Penguins are annoying the elites now. Pretty soon the plebian hordes will follow and we'll be the second-most hated team.

This worries me. Are we slipping?
