So you admit to taking the words of a blogger instead of watching the videos yourself even though they have been posted for you?

You guys are like religious fanatics when it comes to defending Doughty.
I took the word of a blogger and your head coach who both said he was playing poorly. He wa minus 10 after 10 games. Someone posted 10 videos and said there that proves that he was playing great. You guys are just way too sensitive about Doughty. You want me to find 'proof' that he was playing poorly. What would constitute proof to you?

I like Doughty he's one of if not my favorite D-Man. But honestly he has a weird hatred for Vancouver, even before last years playoff series he always had something against the 'Nucks. He's quite the hypocrite here.

Every team has players who whine and dive, there's no use wasting energy antagonizing any fanbase over that fact. Grow up, realize it is prevalent throughout the league, and move on.

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.
the problem is if a canuck player do that, ppl will call them whiners.. it's like a one way street..

I agree. I'd like to see more diving penalties called.
If hockey ever turns into soccer I don't think I could bear to watch it anymore.

Are you kidding me? If that isn't whining I don't know what is. Wow how could you even defend such an act. If that's Burrows or Kesler, you'd be through the roof.

Man screw Doughty, he's a bigger whiner and a bigger diver than anybody on either Vancouver or Phoenix, it's just cause he plays in one of the league's special favourite markets nobody calls him out on it. Ever since he's been in the league he's played like an entitled little brat and I can't stand it. Somebody needs to really start talking up all the scuzzy stuff LA does, because they sure throw a lot of crap at other teams and do a lot of talking.

It's like they're trying to get out ahead of the thing and talk down other teams as a smokescreen to distract from all the lame, cheap, bogus stuff they do and have been getting away with for years, figuring like if they throw this stuff out there against other teams it covers for themselves. Well, it ain't fooling me! I am so on to these chumps.

I am enjoying this LA/VAN rivalry though. Makes way more sense than the VAN/TOR rivalry that seemed to be built on the Sundin trade.
The start of a great neo-Smythe Division rivarly.

This thread is golden. 10 page pissing match over whose teams dive and whine more.

Let him say what he wants. He's geing outplayed by Slava Voynov, gotta let out some steam somewhere. The Canucks are just as guilty for the same type of whining.

Just shows the sad state of hockey.

I like when people whine about whining.

He really needs to focus on improving his game instead of scouting other teams in the league.

I'm not really surprised his performance has declined ever since his sophomore year. I'd take the two defensemen drafted after him without thinking twice.

Are you ****ing kidding me? I'm proving my point and you're telling me i'm pulling stuff out of my ass? Do you know how an argument works? I said there is diving and whining throughout the NHL these days and I posted those two details as EVIDENCE. Jesus Christ, you just can't state support for a side anymore.

Yes, I want Doughty to not whine (which he has fixed recently, compared to 2-3 years ago), I also want Brown to not dive but like I said, you won't find many (if at all) teams that will go far without a player like that.

There have been some weird and absurd claims in this thread...but the boldfaced takes the cake, I think

Care to elaborate?

Oh look another his performance has declined post. His game has improved but only watching the stat line doesnt show that.
