A small minority of fans. Most of the ones close enough to throw stuff are simply white trash who work for the corporate sponsers and get free tickets. They don't represent all of us, so I don't think it's fair to label us all.

One of the Detroit-Avs games last season, they were throwing stuff on our play-by-play announcers, so it doesn't just happen in evil Colorado.

I also saw some Wild fans shouting insults at Avs fans when the game was over. I have nothing against trash talking a team, but to start attacking their fans is just plain nasty. The Avs fans were visibly upset, so it wasn't just friendly teasing. But did I come here and label all Wild fans as crappy? No.

I think the Canucks and Wild are a better match! I don't think it will be the most exciting hockey - but I will be there in front of the TV for every game!

As for the Avs, it just goes to show, don't get too high on yourself! You'll end up having lame fans throwing stuff on the ice after they lose.

I think every team has their share of bad fans. I've seen a lot of bad behavior over the years.

Man, those Ducks are on fire.

I have a feeling all these overtime games will catch up to them, though.

Overtime won't catch up with them if they continue to win... if they sweep every series then they'll have played just as many games, in terms of minutes, as everyone else.

Besides, the motivation and confidence they get from winning games like that can carry them all the way. This team is very familiar... reminds me of the Habs of 93...

I have to say this (although I loathe it)... Go Ducks.

I hope every game between the Stars and the Ducks goes to O.T. and I also hope the Ducks lose in 7. If I were Vancouver, I would rather play a beat up and tired Stars team than the Kookie Quakers. I honestly believe that the Canucks outmatch Dallas in many ways, from overall speed to hitting. I just don't think the Stars want it badly enough this year, where as if the Ducks get a sniff of the Stanley Cup, they'd be formiddable to say the least (already are actually). So, yes, go Ducks, but lose in 7 after tiring out the Stars. Thank-you Anaheim.

By the way, I'm not assuming a Canucks victory over Minnesota. I'm expecting it. Big difference.
