The Canucks are a rival in the way of success for other teams so naturaly they draw a lot of hate, if they stunk and were basement dweller I really dont think the reaction would be the same - all around the boards.

Look at Anaheim in 2007, they were dirty pieces a ****, but they were also a good hockey team and rightfuly so won it all last year.

No hockey team is full og angels, and if they are - they're not very good one most likely.
Bolland definitely gets his little shots in, although I think a big part of his game is what he does to his opponents psychologically, by trash talking and being a pest. I sure don't remember the Hawks being hated on last year like the Canucks are this year, so there must be some difference.

I think the things that are really making people dislike the Canucks are the those that involve a bit of cowardice. Biting someone's finger, diving, whining to the refs, disrespecting an opponent after beating them in a Game 7 overtime...For whatever reason, the public looks down much more on stuff like this than they do on bullying techniques. Not saying it's right, but that appears to be the trend.

Ducks won both games when Pronger was suspended.
