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.

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......

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 don’t 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'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 couldn't agree with this article more. Timmy Thomas should be the only name on the cup this year.

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.

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.

Thanks Offsides

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!!!!
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

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:

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.
