Drew Doughty's Comments on Phoenix/Vancouver (mod warning #185)

Drew Doughty calls out Canucks and Pheonix at the same time.

Quote:
“I think one is that they like to whine a lot. At times they remind me of Vancouver with their complaining and stuff like that…I don’t know if it’s one single guy or anything like that. It kind of seems like a whole team kind of thing. All teams whine, all teams complain, it just seems like this team, especially against us…Seem to do it every night. So that’s what frustrates you, and they play you hard, and they’re tough to play against. So that also is what bugs you.”
http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-pu...5664--nhl.html

I know many of you guys say the Canucks whine and dive but when you whine about someone else who whines its kind of ironic, eh?

Guys a pretty big baby at times..


Real question is.. Should players be able to speak their minds or should teams censor everything?

Let them talk. Gives the players a personality. The over emphasis on media relations gives the impression that most hockey players are really dull.

It reminds me of school girl chatter. I don't expect anything intelligent from this guy any more than I do from Marchand. From the interviews I've watched he hasn't struck me as cerebral in any way. Good player but he should leave the chirping on the ice where the big boys play.

Doughty is second to Toews in the whining department

Lol he's the last one to complain about that. He cries to the refs so much. That video of the Phoenix game was gold.

Haha Doughty is the biggest cry baby in the NHL. One of the biggest divers too.

But he is right about Vancouver even though most of their fans don't think they don't dive and whine.

Drew Doughty is a bigger whiner than anyone on the Canucks roster.

I actually don't even hate the Kings at all, I actually cheered them on in the finals last year. But the one player I just can't stand is Doughty. Hated him ever since he came into the league. Does nothing but piss and moan to the refs and dive all the time, and usually fools the refs into giving him his way. He's a disgrace.

Doesn't sound like he was whining at all.

Are you just trying to make yourself feel better because he made fun of your team?

When is the last time Doughty whined to the refs? Please show me. He doesn't do it all the time. The above video was the last time I ever saw anything from him. Just say you hate him. Don't make all these ******** excuses.

Lol, a "disgrace". So dramatic.

Sometimes I wish he would keep his mouth shut on the ice but I think when the teams chirp each other up it adds a very human aspect to the game. So, for the most part, I enjoy off the cuff answers from these guys.

Its true. He embarassed himself there and Sutter has reeled him in this year.

I used to hate Doughty, but it's kind of turned more into amusement at how immature he can be at times.

He's then cooled down. It's a real shame or I would tell you what to do.

Yep. I think I remember Doughty telling the media that he didn't need to do that. It was playoff time, so it got the best of him. He's been mature this season. Such a huge difference. Sutter doesn't let that **** fly.

How does a video of him getting a bad call in pivotal point in OT make him a whiner? I don't see any player that'd be calm about that.

And no players shouldn't be censored, it's not whining, it's being honest and speaking your mind. Matter of fact I wish players did it more often.

Funny, when you quote him without quoting the original question, then it does indeed sound like he's whining. But in fact, he's not.

http://mayorsmanor.com/2013/03/dough...ch-as-canucks/

Quote:
- On what it is about Phoenix that brings out the bad blood: “I think one is that they like to whine a lot. At times they remind me of Vancouver with their complaining and stuff like that…I don’t know if it’s one single guy or anything like that. It kind of seems like a whole team kind of thing. All teams whine, all teams complain, it just seems like this team, especially against us…Seem to do it every night. So that’s what frustrates you, and they play you hard, and they’re tough to play against. So that also is what bugs you.
Don't see how that's whining, more like telling it like it is.

THIS is whining.

Quote:
- Coach Dave Tippett on the overall game: “We had a great effort. It’s too bad we didn’t win. Our guys deserved to win tonight; we played harder than they did. We had more chances. Unfortunately we had a couple of calls that went against us and they dictated the game. We had lots of push in our game tonight. We missed far too many opportunities. This was a game that probably shouldn’t have been close.”
He also whined about Brown "diving" but failed to mention OEL and his Oscar worthy embellishment.
