I had a flashback to 1994 when the fine people of Vancouver decided to destroy their city when their hockey team couldn't pull out Game 7 of a Stanley Cup Final. It appears that the rioters of 1994 didn't teach others the folly of what they did.
Just because you had the most talented team in the finals doesn't mean that you had the best team in the finals. Both times that the 'Nucks lost Game 7, they had the best talent but the talent didn't form a better team than the Rangers or Bruins. Time to take a look at yourselves up there in Vancouver and ask yourselves if embarrassing yourselves twice over your hockey team not being able to win the biggest game of the season is worth it all. There is tens of Millions of dollars of damage. There is over 100 people arrested. There are hundreds hurt. Tell me that this is worth it.
The game of hockey is just that a game. It is disrespect that you are showing the game and your team when you decide to destroy the city that you live in. Think that the fans in Boston would do this? Hell no they wouldn't. They would be upset if their team lost the finals, but they would be proud of their team and proud of their city. The best team in the NHL during the playoffs won the Stanley Cup. Deal with it in ways that doesn't destroy the city you idiots. Get drunk and sleep it off. Call the Sports talk shows and say what the Canucks need to do in order to win next year. Have animal sex with your significant other. Do something that doesn't involve becoming a criminal. Have to start calling you Montreal West because of the fans.
