Nearly as good as the win; Lapierre trolling Bergeron.

It's not enough that he doesn't have to live with the consequences of his dumbass, out-of-control actions, but the Canucks were cracking up over it. They probably still think it was all hilarious.

Hockey just got another black eye and it was self-inflicted.

I'm laughing. And the only thing I find funnier is the holier-than-thou reaction.

A guy sticks his finger up my nose and tries to widen my left nostril and sticks a second one in my mouth -- damn right I'll bite it off.

Furthermore, I watched all the Sportsnet and TSN programs yesterday. Pretty much every analyst they had on said they had either been bitten by or had bitten someone in their careers during a face wash. And these aren't all young guys either. Hell, even Cliff Ronning said he bit Tie Domi. CLIFF RONNING!.. And Ronning bit Domi's bare finger. :lol:

Take a chill pill folks. This dog is older than all of us.

I'm not going to be around as much during the finals guys. Got asked to help out on another hockey board. It will probably take a lot of my time, at least for now.

I know you will all miss the absolute hell out of me.

And please be kind to my team. :P

Sad. I was going through some hockey cards earlier today and came across a Luc Bourdon rookie card. I know he passed in May of 2008, but I wasn't sure what day exactly.

Bourdon and Burrows were very close. When Burrows does that archer thing after a big goal that's in memory of Luc.

For awhile there it seemed like tragedy was following members of the Canucks. Less than a year after Bourdon was killed Taylor Pyatt's fiance was also killed in an accident.

Three years ago today.

Luc Bourdon (February 16, 1987 – May 29, 2008) was a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who played for the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League (NHL) and their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Manitoba Moose, from 2006 until 2008. After overcoming childhood arthritis, he was selected third overall in the 2003 Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) draft and played for the Val-d'Or Foreurs, Moncton Wildcats, and Cape Breton Screaming Eagles, spending four seasons in the QMJHL. The Canucks drafted Bourdon with their first selection, tenth overall, in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Noted as a strong defenceman who could contribute on offence, Bourdon represented Canada in three international tournaments, winning two gold medals at the IIHF World U20 Championship and a silver medal at the IIHF World U18 Championship. Bourdon died at the age of 21 near his hometown of Shippagan, New Brunswick, when his motorcycle collided with a tractor trailer.

Bourdon was killed instantly in a motorcycle collision in Lamèque, New Brunswick, near his hometown of Shippagan on May 29, 2008, when he hit a tractor-trailer after losing control of his 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000 and crossing the centre line. Environment Canada showed winds gusting to more than 50 km/h (31 mph) in the area at the time of the accident. The RCMP stated that Bourdon's inexperience with motorcycles may have been a factor in the crash.

Really, REALLY hate vancouver but love Boston! Not sure how this series is going to pan out, but if feb. 26. 2011 is any indication Ill be a happy man!

That was a game where the Canucks out-hit the Bruins nearly into oblivion but lost 3-1 (empty netter). It was also around the time when the Canucks defence was so beat up that they were down to about the number 14 defenceman on the depth charts. Even the call-up replacements for the injured top 6 were getting injured. That game is not a very valid comparison to draw any conclusions from, other than that the Canucks defence is incredibly deep considering they continued to play better than .500 hockey through that time.

Boston deserves this one. My housemate is in heaven, because she's been a B's fan for eons. I hope they bring it back to an Original Six team again. It's been pretty neat to have an O6 team win two of the last three Cups. Let's hope Boston makes it 3 of 4. GO BRUINS!!!!!

Oh yeah, there is one other thing...bears love to eat fish. :lol:

An orca is not a fish. If a bear ever tried to eat an orca it would be taken back into the food chain and converted into a brown slick on the ocean within about 24 hours. :yowza:

The punch that led Kevin Bieksa to Canucks

May, 25, 2011
5:22 PM ET

By Pierre LeBrun

And to think, it was a punch in a Winnipeg parking lot that helped get playoff hero Kevin Bieksa his first pro contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

What, you say?

Enter former Canucks GM Brian Burke, who on Tuesday recounted to ESPN.com the story of Bieksa and the Canucks, which began in Winnipeg near the end of the 2003-04 season.

"He played his four years at Bowling Green. They were eliminated from the playoffs, and we brought him to Manitoba [AHL] on a PTO [professional tryout]," Burke said. "One night after a game in Winnipeg, in which I don't think he played, they went to a local establishment. Fedor Fedorov was sitting at a table and Bieksa walked by the table, bumped him by accident and spilled Fedorov's beer. Bieksa apologized and offered to buy another beer."

According to Burke, Fedorov was in no mood for the apology from the unknown rookie and challenged him to a fight outside. Bieksa again tried to defuse the situation, according to Burke, but Fedorov wanted to fight.

"So, they go outside. Fedor was a big guy, he was a lot bigger than his brother Sergei," said Burke. "Then Fedor comes in and Bieksa drills him with one punch. Knocks him stone cold and cut wide-open and leaves him lying on the pavement."

Burke said Bieksa figured he was done with the Canucks organization and would be sent home the next day.

"Send him home? I said, 'We're going to sign him tomorrow,'" said Burke, whose affinity for truculence is well-established.

Bieksa played 80 games with the Moose the following season before graduating to the Canucks in 2005-06.

You're the only Nuck fan that doesn't realize that Kesler is a massive diver. All of HFBoards knows and even the Nucks main forum knows it. So either 99% of the hockey fan population is wrong, or you are wrong.

Post 416. Previous page.

I can understand the comment though Doc. Kesler does embellish. In this case though, I'm not so sure.

Oops.

You'd have to ask him. Force of habit?

Like I said earlier, I'm a Kesler fan. I've said several times he should win the Selke this year, and probably should've last year. It's not just blind hate. Though this series has made it harder and harder to continue to like him.

But if he's jawing with Clowe like that and doesn't think he could get popped, he's an idiot. Even on hfboards they were pointing out how none of his teammates really checked on him. And how he popped up to congratulate Luongo seconds later. If his jaw is that tender, he probably shouldn't be sticking it in Clowe's face at the end of a game. It's not surprising that Clowe would do that.

Fair enough. It's a bit of a non-starter for me. The game was over, we won and Kesler got back up.

If you weren't watching the games where Chicago was blowing out the Nucks and how Vancouver players reacted, there's really no point in me telling you. But calling out the sharks for being sore losers against Vancouver is kind of like the Sharks calling out Vancouver for diving.

The only possible thing I think you may be referring is to Bieksa tuning up Stalberg. I thought that's where you were going.

In that case, Stalberg was running all over the ice taking shots at our players late in a 7-1 game. Right before Bieksa tuned him up he hit Bieksa in the head. Bieksa did the right thing and taught the punk a lesson.

Kesler with one final dive. I'm revising my opinion on him. Looks like the old Kesler is returning.

Why would Kesler dive when the game's over and there's no potential gain?

He lost a couple bottom teeth and had 13 stitches last series. Probably hurt like hell.

edit: Oops. Didn't see RedLightGoesOn's comment above.

Clowe punching at Kesler like a sore loser and Kesler showing he can take a better dive any day.

It sure does seem like that's the way the Sharks handle a loss isn't it. Goon it up. Now they'll probably call the Canucks classless in the post-game interviews.

Henrik leads the playoffs in points now. He will never show up in the playoffs.

Salo with a huge game.

Torres was a human wrecking ball. Put Thornton out of the game.

Replacements Ballard and Tanev played great. Ballard's cart-wheel hit was awesome. Tanev is 21 years old. He also played beyond his years earlier in the season when three quarters of our defensive core was out. Great future ahead of him.

No, but judging by CBC's comments, they think Don Cherry is worth a half dozen second tape delay, yet despite the apocalyptic boobies live game telecasts aren't.

Sense? This makes none.

Don Cherry and Ron McLean are a far more offensive pair of boobs.

edit: I should get af****** award for that.

"Might" have intended?? I think it was prettey obvious.

In terms of Sedin seeing him coming and turning his back, I'm not so sure about that, he lost the puck in his feet and turned and looked to find it. I could be wrong, but that's what it looked like to me. Either way, I wouldn't lump this into those plays where the guy turns at the last second.....there is a decent amount of time where Eager could have very easily avoided the hit....not only did he not do that, he actually drove through the hit pretty aggressively.

Personally, I'd suspend, but they probably won't. Bob MacKenzie suggested the hit isn't suspendable due to similar hits in the past not being suspended, but he went on to say that the league may look at it closer due to all the other idiotic things he did during the game.

I'm not sure how this is "significantly" different than the Matt Cooke hit that got 4 games. I know one is "Matt Cooke" and that plays into it, but Eager isn't exactly a non-idiot.

"Eager isn't exactly a non-idiot."

That's a pretty good potential quote/sig.
