Good for Boston. I've been behind them 100% since Game Three.
You must not know anything about Nathan Horton. In between the shitty player he is, the shitty work ethic he has, the beef my team has with him, and the beef I have with him on a personal level. He's a lazy piece of shit, an unprofessional prick, and just a downright awful person.

Good things shouldn't happen to bad people.

Congrats, Boston.

My heart is breaking for the Canucks, but they gave us one hell of an amazing season. I was absolutely convinced that this was our year, but maybe next year will be.

Thanks. Boston was the better team.


Cars are already burning downtown. These stupid assholes that are starting these fires, etc. are NOT true Canucks fans. Makes me even more grateful that I couldn't make it downtown tonight, and that I'm safe at home. Hopefully things won't get worse as the night progresses.

Well that was disapointing... I wasn't really rooting for either team but Vancouver could have at least put up more of a fight. It was like watching a Leaf game...

The fans inside were pretty respectful for the most part. Cheered Tim Thomas as he picked up the Conn Smythe trophy. PA announcer played "Dirty Water" as the Bruins were celebrating. Fans even gave several rounds of extended cheers to Gary Booooooooooooettman.

The rioters outside, of course, were just a bunch of punks looking for an excuse to start trouble, as happens in many cities.

Great win for the Bruins. Wore the Canucks down over the course of 7 games, their defense was on fumes with injuries and the Rome suspension.
I'd hate to have Luongo under contract till 2022. Schneider looked much better when he got in.
Rioting...just senseless.

What a grueling series that was. Grueling playoffs, really. I think both teams played a total of 25 games, and combine that with the travel, the physical play, the intensity...it's amazing they held up as long as they did. In the end, it seemed the Bruins just had a little bit more left in the tank.

I know they faltered, but the Canucks really did have an amazing season. If it hadn't been the Bruins in the playoffs, I would've liked to have seen them take it all.

As I was watching the live riot coverage, I was thinking about how stupid people can be. Not only for rioting, but doing it in such an open manner. TV crews and photographers everywhere, especially when everyone and their mother has a camera phone or smartphones.

I also predicted that people would post pictures of themselves on Facebook, thereby incriminating themselves. And, sure enough, that has happened.

Check out the page "Vancouver Riot Pics: Post Your Photos" on Facebook. People are uploading photos from last night so police can better identify the idiots. Some are even uploading screen grabs of Facebook pages where people are boasting about all the damage they have done and posting pics to prove it.

I know that social media is still in its relative infancy, but it really brings people's stupidity to the forefront. It's astounding what goes through people's minds.
