Yes. He was not liked at all by this fanbase prior to coming to Vancouver. Good luck finding a single Canuck fan right now that dislikes the guy.

The crest on the jersey always comes before the name on the back and that goes for every sport. There are countless examples of players going to teams where they were despised only to be treated well right from the get-go.

Winning is what fans care about. If Bolland performs, he will be liked. If he performs in the playoffs, he will be a fan favourite.
