That's pretty embarrassing for Vancouver. Heard enough of the crap that "those aren't hockey fans" because yeah, they are. Really stupid hockey fans. It just takes a bit if opportunity to unleash their inner asshole.

Ok... I feel a little bad about that. But it's been a LONG time for the Bruins, I was 8 back in 1972 and don't remember much except Bobby Orr

The NHL has a huge problem marketing their players because even if I don't watch the games I should be able to recognize more than four names just from exposure. I don't know how in the world Bettman is still commish. Also... for a league that bases most of their teams in the US isn't it a little odd that only two players on the entire Bruins roster were born in the states? The league feels more like the MLS every day. I don't want to hate the NHL, but they make it so easy.


You're right that Bettman's an idiot, but I don't get your 2nd point. The best players in the world are foreign born, so that's why the teams get them. What do you want them to do? Put themselves at a competitive disadvantage by taking Americans? Who cares if I'm watching Russians play as long as they're playing good hockey?


No, it was just an observation.

I'm just sick that Roberto LeBrongo gave this to the hated Bruins.

I'm not fond of the Bruins. Nobody has done more to disgrace hockey (last night's Vandalcouver riot excepted) since the Broadstreet Bullies than the Bruins. They're such cheap shot artists that the DC sniper was offended when compared to Kenny the Rat Linsman. Not to overstate my case but if Hitler were alive he'd be a Bruins fan.

Bobby Orr is terribly overrated. Cam Neely was a stiff. Ray Borque couldn't wait to leave.

I'm just sick about this.

Next year Subban will bring the Cup back home to Montreal where it belongs and all will be right in the world.
