In Andrew Ference's post game on ice interview, he said the first thing he thought of was Jarome Iginla, Rhett Warrener, Robyn Regehr, Chuck Kobasew, and the 2004 Calgary Flames.  Class act, that Ference.

I don't get it, is that good or bad?

If I remember right, Ference was on that Calgary team that lost in the finals to the Lightning.  He was just thinking about his old team is how I took it.

I love the way the Canuck crowd belts out the national anthem! I've never seen another crowd do it like that.

The Penguins had a guest singer in the playoffs this year who had the crowd doing this as well, was very cool.

Well the minority of asshat fans here in Vancouver have done it again - looting some stores and burning some cars in the downtown area. The best thing about the digital age is that there were lots of cell phone photos of them and the police are welcoming submissions. This shit makes me sick and I hope the police throw the book at these assholes!

Well just like after game 6 in 1994 its looking again like it was premeditated and started by a bunch of punks - which is why looting was involved.  If the Canucks won the same thing would probably would have happened. Of course once something like this starts, you get some very drunk asshat fans joining in too. I'm a bit pissed that the Vancouver Police weren't better at anticipating this, but admittedly there's isn't an easy job.

Is it just me or is just awesome being a Boston kid growing up in the 2000's?  I'm pretty sure Boston now has championships in football, basketball, baseball and now hockey all in the first 11 years of this millennium.  It really is an embarrassment of riches.

I was just talking to my buddy from Boston today and saying the same thing!  They have it real good.

So I was reading another article just now and it seems the Patriots are the Boston team with the longest championship drought.....not since 2005!  LOL!!

Shitty owner and fans that never won anything but acted like they did.

I had to chose a side in the '88 ECF.

One of those things has changed and maybe winning will make me tone down my hatred like it did for the Colts, but I doubt it.

Typical Boston shit though. Anything that happens outside Boston sucks or doesn't matter, anything that happens inside Boston is great and important.

I'm sure it's like that in any other sports town, but I live here.

IMHO I think it's a diservice to blame Canucks fans for the rioting.  Reminds me of the G8 summit debaucle last summer, where a few opportunistic asshats take advantage of an opportunity to be fucknuts.  Is a shame though.. Vancouver is a great city (4th best in the world), and too bad some dickheads need to scar that.

As for Bettman, he deserves every boo he got.

Vancouver is a great city (4th best in the world), and too bad some dickheads need to scar that.

I haven't gone looking for a link yet, but there was a good interview of Ray Ferraro on Jim Rome's talkradio show this morning. He lives about 6 blocks away from the rioting and he was actually blocked from returning home at 1 point last night. As Ray said; there was about 100,000 fans in downtown Vancouver lastnight and about 1-2% that started all the asshatery - so yeah basically about 1000-2000 punks who took adantage of the situation. That said, there was a share of frustrated fans that got caught up in it and joined in. The worst thing is that many of those 100K couldn't leave the downtown area easily as the police corodoned off a lot of it around the plaza where the game was being viewed on a big screen. As was mentioned on a number of the sports radio programs here in Vancouver this morning, it was clear after the 2nd period that the punks were getting rowdy, and thankfully most families left around then.

The real difficulty for me about it all, came on my way to work this morning when I saw the Hudson Bay building. For those who don't know, this is the surviving department store chain that is descended form the early fur trade company that was a founding enterprise in Canada. It's the retail franchise that's hung on and endured here in Western Canada for over a century, while almost all the other historical chains like Woodwards and Eatons folded long ago due to the pressure of modern big box retailers like Walmart. The Vancouver building is about 100 years old and quite impressive with very nice stone work on it. And how do these fucking punks reward that - when I passed it this morning every single window had been broken and it was evident lots had been looted from it and lots had been vandalized. I'd lie to you if I didn't admit it brought a few tears to my eyes. Upon thinking about it again, I'm so pissed off that I find myself literaly wanting the blood of the asshats that defouled it. I'm know I'm not alone in my sentiments, as a number of civilians were injured last night trying to defend it - a few quite seriously.

As I said earlier, I really hope they throw the book at the asshats responsible for the rioting.

I've read two theories on that picture:

1. Crazy kids
2. The girl is actually injured, and he is comforting her while they wait for an ambulance. I don't know what facts back that up, but there are pictures of them from other angles.

What makes them my team? This isn't the 40's where you would get scores from the west coast in the paper 3 days later. I can watch every game of every team live and then watch their local news and read their local papers online. It's a small world.


Never thought geography was a reason to like a team or not (only a fan of one of the local teams). If I vacation in Miami, do I become a Panthers fan for a week? If I move to Dallas do I need to like the Stars? If I was born in Montana do I even get a team?

A lot of people can't understand this, especially around here.

If Terry Francona set your car on fire, would you still have to root for the Red Sox because you live in Natick?

I followed the Devils since they were in Colorado, moving, changing names, where I am, it all doesn't matter.

That being said, I am eating a lot of shit over the last day from family, work, friends. You guys know that I like to mix it up, and the Bruins have been a VERY easy target over the years.  icon_biggrin

I'm still fighting a bit: "Now you've got as many Cups as Tampa, Carolina and Anaheim in the last 40 year. You must be proud!" and attacking Tim Thomas with "I don't see what the big deal is, he couldn't win any of the close games in the finals. Sure, any goalie can defend a 7 goal lead, how tough is that? When the games were tight, Luongo won them all."

Now the Canucks are on my shit list for allowing this to happen!   icon_biggrin

God  I can't wait until Lucic hoists the cup.

Ya, what the hell was up with that?  That was a whole new level of Bettman hate.  Seemed a little inappropriate.

You obviously don't know the history of the Canucks and Bettman - nothing inappropriate about it at all. And shame on Oilers fans if they wouldn't do the same thing; Winnipeg could already have it's 1st NHL season under it's belt if it wasn't for the monumental ego of that weasel.

Shame on fans for shutting up and letting the man talk while he's trying to present the Con Smythe and the Stanley Cup, instead of booing so loud he can't do his job and get out of the way?  I noticed plenty of beer cups and other debris being thrown at him too - classy.  It was embarrassing to watch, regardless of who it was they were jeering.

I've never heard of anyone hating their own team.  There's nothing wrong with supporting teams from other places as well (I love cheering for Montreal in the playoffs and I'm a Leafs fan!)  Still it just seems odd to hate your own team.  And yes the team where you are from (at least as long as you grew up or spent most of your life there) is YOUR team.  Admit it-you're a self-hating Boston Bruins fan! biggrin

Actually if you watched, they cheered for the Bruins.. standing ovations for Tim Thomas and Lucic (hometown).  It's a Canada vs. Bettman thing, and it's well deserved, the guy is a slimeball.

I've never heard of anyone hating their own team.  There's nothing wrong with supporting teams from other places as well (I love cheering for Montreal in the playoffs and I'm a Leafs fan!)  Still it just seems odd to hate your own team.  And yes the team where you are from (at least as long as you grew up or spent most of your life there) is YOUR team.  Admit it-you're a self-hating Boston Bruins fan! biggrin

Nope. Not my team, not even close. Hate them more than any team in any sport.

Sure, when I was 6 and my grandfather got me a Terry O'Reilly shirt I thought I was a Bruins fan, but as soon as I was old enough, I got FAR away and don't regret it one bit. Though it doesn't look good right now, overall I made the right choice.

Well I'm glad the season is over and I can stop being stressed about who is going to win or lose.  These playoffs were the worst for me yet.  I look forward to being friendly with all of you for the next 3 months until hockey starts again.

I honestly didn't pay any attention to the 2nd and 3rd rounds.  Once Buffalo was eliminated, I guess I sort of backlashed and didn't care enough about anyone else to watch.  But I'm always interested in the Finals and watched a large percentage of the games.

Now if only Time Warner would actually make the NHL network available in Dallas like it is in Wichita Falls... disgust

One is a Canucks fan - the other cheers for Boston.  Two Kamloops co-workers made a bet on the Stanley Cup finals.  The guy who cheers for the losing team gets a tattoo of the winning team.  Today - the man loyal to the Canucks had a "Bruins" logo tattooed on his body.
    Canucks fan Jamie Meegan decided to have the puck sized logo tattooed into the side of his leg.  Meegan was inked in downtown Kamloops today.  It took just over an hour to complete - and the pain was felt on many levels.   Joining his friend in solidarity - or just to rub it in a little more - Bruins fan Ryan Lesage also had the same tattoo done.
