After the Sturm signing I just don't know what Gillis is thinking. And as for Janssen, I couldn't cheer for this guy even if he scored the cup clinching goal for us. I think he is a garbage player.

I'm not saying those guys are growing on trees, but I really don't think bringing in a guy like this does our team any good. There are certain guys I'll never cheer for, no matter what team they play on.

Bunch of hypocrites on here. I've seen these punks talk crap about anything and everything Vancouver much, much more than our fan base talking crap about other teams. It isn't even close.

Wow, almost forgot about Carcillo. If the Canucks sign Janssen and we meet the Hawks again in the playoffs next season, that would be a series to remember.

Well at least Janssen has character... I guess. I would rather have Torres back though, at least he can score.

No but the jealousy crap is blown out of proportion, the Oilers and Leafs get flamed to death because they too have 5 times as many people posting and re-posting threads and arguments that don't have purpose. Do you really think it's that people are jealous of teams with lottery picks... or maybe just the overwhelming number of fans showing up in every single thread with nothing new to say.

Vancouver should have signed Konopka. Actually a lot of teams should have signed him.

I've learned that Nuck fans have a few favourite words the past year

"Envy"
"Jealousy"
"Haterz"

Yes, because clearly a few "Nucks fans" speak for all of us.

I don't have a problem with the constant slights (it comes with the territory of being a playoff contender). What bothers me are blanket-statements like the one I quoted - just no basis for them whatsoever.

Agreed, well back on topic, IF Janssen signs here, he'll probably provide one year of service, 50/50 NHL/AHL duties, and plays against teams that also has a enforcer or a dirty scoundrel player like Steve Ott etc.

it's called strategy, man. hug until the other guy is completely worn out from trying to get separation and throwing punches at your helmet then right when the refs are about to pull you off of him start throwing like crazy.

anyway...not nearly the ****** Torres is. Then again, not nearly the hockey player.

Meh...someone for Hordi to wrassle with.

I love how much people hate the Canucks. Jealousy towards how good they are and how their core is locked up is understandable: I've hated the Wings for the past decade.

BUT...what I like is the cheap stuff. The low hit by Marchand, the slash by Peverley on Bieksa, the Mcguinn hit on Rome (head-on-glass), Eager taunting Luongo after a goal, even Toews was trash-talking with how he'd "expose" Vancouver for the team they are... Vancouver recieves just as many cheap shots as other teams, yet they are the "dirty team"....well O.K. then

I loved seeing:
- Burrows pull Keith's hair - get a haircut, "Kimo"(UFC 08)
- Burrows bite Bergeron - get you're fingers outta his eyes then!
- Kesler chickenwing Weber - get your stick out of his midsection then....duh!
- Horton caught with his head down - If McGuinn or Chara makes that hit, no suspension
- Marleau think he could take the smaller Bieksa - his nick-name is "Boom Boom", do your homework, Patty. Love how it made Eager get mad and make himself look like an idiot.

Hate all you want, cuz I'm having fun with it. I feel like Megamind, booing along with the crowd while Metro Man was busy walking on water and showing off. "Booooooo........Boooooo"

Not 100% of the other teams fans, it just seems to be the "in" thing to do these days, because we won the prez trophy, gone to the finals, but didn't win, people still pouring salt on our wounds.

meh, it is what it is, as sad as some haters can be.
You do realize that a lot of it is bought on us by our own fellow fans starting thread after thread of how we great we are and stuff. Thats where a lot of hate came from. Stop whining and lets deal with it.

No offense, but it's really frustrating trying to reason with fans that have this frame of mind.

If you look at the roster of the beginning of LAST season and you look at the roster right NOW, the current roster is a much improved Canucks team. Gillis has never been a free agent hunter and he's made that very clear. Why after one week of free agency fans are freaking out at the Canucks is simply mind-boggling.

Vancouver will most likely make a trade that involves a winger to play with Kesler and other than that you will see very little movement until the trade deadline where Gillis will once again add depth and size for the playoffs.

Don't take for granted what this team is right now. there are many organizations that would like to be int he position the Canucks are in.

I never brought it up, I'm just agreeing with the original poster who said that.

As I agree there is a lot of it in every Canuck thread on this main board, just look into EVERY SINGLE CANUCK SIGNING, and you'll see rude obnoxious posts about the team and the signing, or taking low blows to a new low.

If read my last post, I'm trying to steer this thread back to the original topic of Janssen potentially signing with the team, but alas this new topic of hating the Canucks has taken over the thread, derailing it till kingdom come, unless a mod steps in and takes control of the situation.

Until then, more and more posters will still want to talk about the hatred of the Canucks.

In all honesty though, the majority of the real Canuck fans are pretty level headed, and don't go off spewing about how awesome we are, if anything its the newbies coming in from cdc and other immature sites, and trolls stirring up trouble & the very few bad apples ruining it for every Canuck fan.

This. The sheer number of fans on these boards that cheer for the Canadian teams have increased the probability that there will be more trolling, annoying posters. Add to the fact that Vancouver had an incredible year and you're going to have an added group of bandwagon/annoying fans join the Canuck board. It comes down to numbers and success. Vancouver is having both right now and as such we are labelled unfairly.

Why this simple concept is dismissed all the time is frustrating.

Really you go into every single debate and look at which teams are getting the most trash talk... or do you read 90% Canucks threads and see the same level of bickering and slander as every other team with a big fan base?

Feel free to have something credible or worthwhile to say about Cam Janssen or 2-way deals for tough guys on the roster... no really actually contribute something. It won't hurt you to try.

I don't think there's any doubt Vancouver is the most hated team in the league. Doesn't need to be proven statistically or anything.

Simply put they are an easy team to hate with their relative success and all the agitating players on their roster.

Add to this a fanbase that has been left in relative obscurity that now has a very exciting team to look forward to will have a lot of Canuck fans quite boisterous.

Janssen is not a dirty player. Yea, he has had some bad hits here and there like every other player that plays his style of game. To label him cheap and a head hunter is just silly.

So sick of everyone getting their panties in a bunch over hard hits. Even most of Torress' (who I hate btw) hits were clean. Players need to start picking their heads up, or enjoy the concussion.

I hope they don't sign him.

What happened to Gillis and his whole "great character" mandate? He might be a nice guy away from the rink, but it's scary thinking about the eventual elbow or dirty hit he will throw at the rest of the NW
