SCF: Boston Bruins vs. Vancouver Canucks

Man, I want Boston to win, but I haven't felt this detached from a Cup final in a long time. 08 and 09 were the Wings, 10 was hoping Chicago wouldn't win and hating Pronger's Philly. But this year, as much as I don't really like Vancouver, it's just a big...meh. You'd think a Game 7 Cup final would make every hockey fan salivate, but I'm pretty blase about this whole thing.

Any word on how popular this series is in the US, at least compared to the last few Cup finals? It just seems to me that this one isn't getting as much press as they have since '08.

a Canucks fan suggested that the whole biting thing was Burrows trying to defend his teammate

so it gave me an idea for a nickname

from now on I shall call burrows......

One last time (thankfully)...

C'mon, Wankouver!

The headline says it all:

Which team deserves the Stanley Cup? Neither

From Toronto Star :

...

And enough with the justifications about the blowouts in Boston. Kevin Bieksa and Cory Schneider have both pointed out that hockey is not soccer aggregate scores dont matter. Maybe you guys should watch less of that sport, because all the least manly aspects of soccer are beginning to infect your own play.

I really want Boston to win, but if Vancouver wins the cup the only one I will be happy for is Manny Maholtra because he is coming back from that awful eye injury.

I'm trying to think of players on the nucks that I still have some respect for and would want to see lift the Cup. Malhotra is about it.

There's been teams I've hated that I didn't want to see win the Cup (Chicago), but I can't remember just being embarrassed for a team like I am with Vancouver. Diving, whining, biting. It's been more like recess than the Cup finals.

Agree with this too. I want Boston to win because Vancouver has been such ******* this playoffs and a portion of their fanbase is so awful, but I can't say I'm happy to see any of the Bruins lift the Cup either, other than Thomas.

I really want to see Timmy raise the Cup tonight.

Me too. More than that though, I want to see Luongo and the rest of the Canucks suffer a nuclear implosion of epic proportions. I also want to see all the Canucks bandwagoners trample each other and plead to the league that Boychuck should be suspended for it.

Win or lose there will be a riot in Vancouver

I said the same thing earlier this morning. I hope Boston can do this. Would have been nice to see them win it Monday night, but they just couldn't get those wins in Vancouver. I hope they've figured out what went wrong and fix it tonight.

At the beginning of the series my mom asked me who I thought would win; my response was "I want the Bruins to win, but if I had to put money on it, I'd bet on Vancouver." Now I really, really want the Bruins to win it. Supposedly the Western Conference is tougher than the Eastern, but all the WCF and this SCF has shown me is how much more diving the West does. I'm embarrassed to be in the same conference with the Sharks and Nucks this year.

Hopefully the hockey gods will teach the West that you can't dive your way to the Cup tonight.

GO BRUINS!!!!

I understand Vancouver fans are passionate and have thousands and thousands watching on the streets for their games, but don't people have jobs up there?

No, it doesn't.

Yes it does.

Totally. Better to fight back and satisfy your own anger issues and jeopardize a potential power play for the T E A M. :thumbup:

:lol:

Both teams have been diving and snapping their heads back. f*** them both.

esteef

Go walk by someone and graze your hand on their face and see if they snap their head back. 9 times out of 10 they will. Now imagine you take a glove or stick that grazes your face....

The diving, though, is extremely obnoxious and there is ZERO excuse for it.

Game 7, just a few hours away. I hope it goes OT, because would just be AWESOME.

It all depends on which Vancouver goalie shows up tonight.

Luuuuuuuuu or Lebrongo?

Oh yeah, I went there.

Ok folks, its game 7...do or die time. This is only the 16th game 7 Final in 97 years.

Yahoo did a decent write up (with cool archival video of classic games) of the previous 15 game 7s...the Wings show up for 7 of them...a good time to learn some history if you don't know it.

Best Game 7s in the SCF

Heres #2...April 23, 1950 Red Wings Vs. NYR:

Check out the fan climbing over the glass and onto the ice after the win!! :thumbup:

Even if your not a Canucks or Bruins fan, hard to not get up for this game. Game 7 to win Lord Stanely, every kids dream playing road hockey either on the road or in your driveway... May the best team win.
