Is the Vancouver Sports Media Too Negative?

I have had the opinion for quite some time that the Vancouver sports media are much too negative when it comes to anything and everything to do with the Vancouver Canucks.

Middleweight Champion of the NHL, Rick Rypien

With four days to go until the next Canucks game (weird schedule this year, isn’t it?), I thought it’d be nice to shine the light on a still very underrated Canuck: Rick Rypien.
