He actually doesn't really light us up in the playoffs. TBH I find he usually plays worse against us than he does against maybe any other team in the league. He was admittedly a great PP specialist in our 2010 series, but outside of that he's been rather average. He was horrid at even strength in 2010, and I don't even think he was the best defenseman on his pairing in last year's series. Mitchell was noticeably better than him on both ends of the ice in those 5 games.

Also, he's notoriously ineffective against Vancouver in the regular season. 6 points in 18 games (2nd worst ppg against western opponents) and -12 over that span with 38 PIM (both worst against any opponent). He's anything but a "Canuck Killer".

The reason I don't like him is because he acts like a baby on the ice. Also, ever since his rookie year I've gotten a bad vibe from him in interviews. I've always felt like he's kind of a weirdo off the ice who over-compensates by trying to act cool when he really isn't. Sort of the anti-Mike Richards if you will.

Honestly, if I'm supposed to be hating him because he "lights up my team", he better start stepping up his play when the Canucks come to town.

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.
Because the video contains arguably the biggest single display of on-ice whining from a player in the last 10 years of the NHL. Being honest/speaking your mind and whining are not mutually exclusive, as you seem to believe.

Drew Doughty -- definitely not one of the more mature young players in the NHL.

Great hockey sense, great under pressure, but he needs to learn to shut it.

He usually sucks against us to be honest. And I think it's funny how you're telling us why we don't like him. Don't think you have a clue. And Doughty saying this is dripping with hypocrisy.

I dont think what he said was that bad and he gave them a compliment as well.

He says everybody does it but he feels like some do it more. We are not on the ice, they are. IMO disagreeing with the refs because of a penalty is not really something that I would call whining. Its the stuff what you see when the play is stopped or when the game is over, that's whining to me. Like you see more often from the Sedins, Doan and so than others.

what? The Sedins? They rarely ever whine. Our coach and Gillis have but none of the players stand out to me.

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?
No one batted an eye lash when Mike Richards and Brandon Dubinsky whined about supposed whining, etc. Let the guy talk I say, if anything, he'll just ruin his own rep or bring more of a spotlight to something that might be true.

But yeah, censoring players? No, unless it's the officials or something lude (see: Avery), then I don't see why anyone should be censored for speaking about another team and how they play or their players. Everyone talks about how interviews or comments are boring, something controversial isn't bad. If anything Doughty just gave some ammo to the Canucks and Yotes to put on the board in the room for motivation when they play the Kings next time.

Your coach, most definitely a whiner, the rest, not so much.

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.
How is this measured?

Don't see how that's whining, more like telling it like it is.

THIS is whining.



He also whined about Brown "diving" but failed to mention OEL and his Oscar worthy embellishment.
Whining is Tippetts mantra. It's never the fault of his team that they lose games, even through they clearly lack skill to compete versus the best teams...

His and Doans meltdowns are classic tho.

Why are Canucks fans so upset about this? Your team whines and so does Doughty. How exciting.

“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.”
Doesn't seem like that bad of a quote. He even admits that teams like Phoenix and Vancouver can get under his skin with their play, not just their talk.

He's thrown a few temper tantrums over the years. At times, he'll take just the absolute dumbest, completely unnecessary interference penalties. Fully aware that he's going to be called for it, yet does it anyway. I can't remember a single instance of a dive though.

Man, we NEARLY went 24 hours without a 'why Doughty sucks' thread.

Hey, I just read this article. Let me misquote it, decontextualize it, and show you a video from last year to prove my CURRENT point!

Seriously don't understand why the Brown and Doughty hate is at an all-time high when both players have been businesslike on and off the ice all year. The groupthink around here is hilarious. The closest thing to controversy either player has had is the linked article, and even then, it's making a mountain out of a molehill.

I recall one. ONE. Vs. the Canucks of course, so you know that gets held onto forever.

Ive been a Kings fan longer than DD's been alive. To defend Drew on whining would be like eating soup with a knife. You just don't do it. Yes from time to time he puts his heart on his sleeve and opens his yap. He defiantly has swagger in his step and its interpreted as cockiness and ego. It is what it is.

Oh and who was his idol growing up? You'll NEVER guess! Wayne Gretzky, the KING of whine!
Shocking huh?

Oh, and I'm sorry, but he's right, Vancouver dives more than a submarine on maneuvers, and Phoenix whines more than California Orchard. It is what it is. Hell, if I got home ice for game seven and choked, I'd whine too.

Whine on!!!

It's actually kind of frustrating that the Canucks are considered whiners. When I watch the games, the Canucks players don't say much to the refs at all, while other teams star players go crazy on them constantly. The Sedins for their part have hardly anything to the refs to say that isn't a pleasantry, yet the uninformed bring them up.

Canucks don't say much in the media anymore, but constantly get brought up by other teams...

It's like an old stigma that won't fade.

Doughty is one of the whiniest players in the league, but there is entirely too much whining accross the NHL these days. Spoiled brats in the league now instead of farm kids I guess...

Don't mind the whining if it's legit, but the diving, come on, if it was an Olympic sport we'd all know where Vancouver would medal.

Should players be allowed to speak their minds? Hell ****ing yes. I'm sick of the censoring, they're not robots, they're still people at the end of the day, let the voices be heard, it's about time they stop putting a muff on the player's personalities, imagine if Roenick or Hull had to be censored throughout their careers. You're losing out on some gold personalities there.

Embellishment whining as a whole is tiresome now. Most of the time whoever does it looks like a complete hypocrite. Kesler dives, Brown dives, Marchand dives and you could go on. Either the league cracks down on it or doesn't but all teams really need to shut up. We get, team x (usually Vancouver) dives. And so does yours.

There's a thread about a non-Canuck diving every day almost, yet some Alberta fans still think it's a Canucks issue. It's time to get over it, the Canucks aren't any worse than any other team. Accept it. It's time.
