#2177021 (1) Vancouver Canucks vs. (2) San Jose Sharks

Posted by Chairman Maouth on 19 May 2011 - 12:23 AM

The post-game comments form the Sharks are unbelievable. Eager calling Bieksa a coward. I guess he didn't see Marleau drop the gloves first. And I guess Eager forgot how he fought Bieksa to a draw and ran from Rick Rypien for two years until Rypien had a bad wrist. All sorts of bile being spewed. Marleau is about the only Shark who showed any class. Talk about sore classless losers.

You guys will probably think this is a Homerish article but I've noticed the same things as the writer has all year long.


As an example, last night the Canucks were called for icing late in the game and their centre got tossed (can't remember who it was). It was a critical point in the game. Danny Sedin had to take the draw and he never takes draws. He sucks at them. At the same time they showed a shot of the bench with Henrik tugging on the shoulder of his own sweater and saying something to Coach Vig -- then Vig cracks up laughing. Today in a media conference Coach Vig was asked about it and he said that Henrik said it was "too bad they'd already used their time-out because him and Danny chould change sweaters for the draw." Then, Danny goes on to win the draw. That's hanging pretty loose at a critical point in the game.

#2175351 Derek Boogaard found dead

Posted by Chairman Maouth on 13 May 2011 - 09:51 PM

Boogaard was the prototypical goon, but I will always remember a fight he got in with Darcy Hordichuk. Hordichuk's sweater tore and it pulled over his head during their fight. Hordichuk was totally blind. Boogaard had free rein to tune Hordichuk up real good, but he stopped throwing punches and nodded at the linesmen to come in. That was when my opinion of him did a 180 degree turn.

Boogaard couldn't skate, he couldn't score, he couldn't do much of anything except be a good team-mate and fight, but he was a decent human being.

RIP Boogey.

#2175328 Congratulations to the Sharks

This is why Red Wings fans have the rep they have. You sound like the French: "We have a great culture, you culture-less americans! We were great when you didn't exist! Bah! You beat us, but we were more stylish! We are the real winners!"

Red wings fans are the "France" of the NHL it seems :/ Why can't you just admit you got beaten by a better team two years in a row?

Thank you, original poster. At least you show that some red wings fans are classy.

First of all -- it's very difficult to take someone seriously who just signed up on this forum the day after the Wings were eliminated from the playoffs and who is now bashing Wings fans.

Secondly, you made a serious mistake by generalizing. I'm not a Wings fan but I know enough of them that I consider them to be among the best in the NHL. While your point did have merit and the parallel you drew was a decent one, it applied to the guy you quoted, not the general populace.

Thirdly, generalizing like that and expecting Wings fans to be all warm and cuddly and respectful is a losing proposition. You will reap what you sow -- but on your first day here you've planted nothing but a big crop of turds.

At the 11:30 mark of the second period you could feel the tide turn; right before the Wings penalty. The tide went from slack to running in the Wings favour. You could actually feel it, smell it and touch it. Then, the penalty kill was huge. I knew if the Wings could get one goal in the period that they can win this game. The Sharks are in defensive mode and the game is now the Wings for the taking.

Recent TSN feature on the green men.

My favourite part is the two little girls (I think) dressed up as green men for Halloween. Right near the end. OP, how could you rob them of their heroes!!!

I asked you what your opinion of the Green men were. I didn't ask you what your opinion of me was. Nice.

Sorry, but it was just my way of telling you to loosen your collar and lighten up a little. Not to mention that you should stop worrying about what goes on in Vancouver.

LadyInRed -- the Christmas wish list for Brian Burke is my all-time favourite. :lol:

Three things the OP will never be:

1. A clown at a kid's birthday party.
2. Dressed up as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve.
3. First to get an invitation to a party.

Rooting for Detroit tonight. Wanna see this series go as long as possible. Can't make up my mind on who I want the Canucks to face though. Both Detroit and San Jose would be tough in the conference finals. I think with either team the series with the Canucks is going to go seven games.

Good luck tonight. If any team can pull off four straight it's the Wings.

I don't see any reason why Lidstrom doesn't have two more excellent years in him - minimum.

Detroit was better then Vancouver. San Jose is better then Detroit. The difference.

Cool. Then turn the TV off and go on holiday. There's clearly no hope.

#2144774 Vancouver new tradition

Ok I'll bite on this for you land lubbers out there in Motown. You see, BC killer wales eat salmon and are referred to as "resident" orcas as opposed to their cousins known as "transients". Unlike their American counterparts, these two groups never intermarry. Transient orcas will hunt seals, penguins and other wales where as resident orcas have abundant supplies high protean salmon to feed on and consequently get much larger, but also stay in smaller pods.

Kudos on most of your explanation. As someone who has spent a ton of time working on the ocean in BC, that's very accurate except for one thing.

I'm sure you knew this already and were simply speaking generally, but we need to be somewhat charitable to our American friends when it comes to the sciences and understanding the infaunal make-up of their friendly northern neighbour. BC resident orcas would probably not know a penguin from Danny Devito. There are no penguins in the northern hemisphere (except in a zoo). Of course it is true that orcas hunt penguins in the southern hemisphere but we don't want to provide our American friends with any kind of erroneous information lest they interpret it incorrectly. I say this only because it was once suggested to me by an American that I "piss off and go back to my igloo with my polar bears and penguins".

In short, too much information can be dangerous but too little can be downright hilarious.

Carry on.

Well, I, for one, feel crappy about their crappy performance in another late season crappy game that doesn't really mean crap, with a bunch of crappy Nucks fans waving crappy Canada flags, pissing off all the crappyLGW fans that buy into this crap. Crappy-assed Wings could have won that piece of crap if they weren't so worried about starting the playoffs with a bunch more crappy injuries.

Crapcount - 11


Here's a suggestion about how to deal with obnoxious Canucks fans in the future....

Before you go to the game print up 5 or 6 flyers that document the Stanley Cup success of the Wings since 1996. Maybe add to it the Canucks "success" over the same time period -- or better yet, since 1970. Give one of those flyers to whomever annoys you.

Yeah, that's not a miraculous discovery. Either way, pretty classless fanbase. Was unaware it was that bad, and to be honest it wasn't until this year. Hmm, wonder if there is some correlation to any of it....

Seriously Hank? :lol:

Oh my God no! People shouted the name of a player at a sporting event? Call Homeland Security! And flags to support their nation and their team? The humanity!

Are you guys really this thin-skinned? Try going to a Canucks game when Montreal, Toronto or Calgary is in town. You'd be embarrassed you even mentioned this in the first place.

As for Canucks fans "practically starting fights", ("practically" - what does that even mean?) well I always believe unsupported and unconfirmed testimonials by anonymous people on the internet -- especially if the testimonial comes after a loss to a conference rival. That's as good as taking an oath in a court of law as far as I'm concerned.

This complaining about Canucks fans is only a deflection to make you feel better about the loss. The refereeing wasn't downright atrocious so I guess you've got to grab whatever figurative pacifier you can find. Get over it. There have been far more Canucks fans in arenas in the western states this year, but far fewer tears from the hometown crowd about them being there. Dry those tears guys. It was just one game. Odds are you'll have a chance at revenge in the playoffs.
