the responses on here are hilarious. this one is my fav:
"All the american teams,cannot skate or play hockey with the Canucks , so they try to even things up by sending their goons after our star players. Nowadays it is the dirtiest , filthiest team that is 'awarded' the Stanley Cup , notice i did'nt say 'win' the cup , cause no american team is capable of 'winning' the Stanley Cup..."
This is why no fan in the league (save VAN fans) should root for the Canucks should they reach the Finals. Following the city-wide celebratory bonfire, their fan base would be so full of themselves, and paranoid of the impending season ruining their team's legacy, that they would call for a halt to the NHL because their team's winning of the Cup perfected hockey and all other games that followed would darken its holy image.
And when the next season started, they would burn their recently rebuilt city down in protest.
