Congrats Boston Bruins (from a Canucks die-hard fan) 4-0
vanity ^ | jan 15, 2011 | max

Posted on 06/15/2011 8:19:29 PM PDT by max americana

Congrats to the Bruins. You played lights out. Every ex-pat canadian here in L.A. just coming out of the bar thought that Thomas played lights out.

(stupid Luongo,,,you miserable mediocre goalie, you could play for Team Canada and give everything but you are a damn overrated clown..get lost loser)

and you Sedin twins, STFU! You Swedes couldn't fight back in WW2, and you should not have quaranteed game 7. Go back to sweden, punks!

ahem..going back. Thanks to Ryan Kesler, my favorite Canuck for the journey. and I feel good for Mark Rechii of BB who's from BC, like me.

I remember watching the last Stanley Cup victory by the Bruins in 1972 - I was just 9 years old!

I do feel bad for the fans of Vancouver. Their team was good enough to win but they ran into one of the greatest playoff goalie performances of all time - Tim Thomas.

I understand why Gary Bettman is booed in most places especially in places now like Atlanta. But why was he booed so lustily in Vancouver. Man, the was brutal.

I think Luongo needs to hire security and get himself escorted out of Vancouver. Of course, you can't blame the goalie alone for that level of fail; getting shut out takes a team to achieve.

CONGRATS To The “B’s” Of Boston For WINNING THE STANLEY CUP!!!!

As it was said, the Bruins who come from not only from IMHO the new title town, Boston, but promised they were NOT going to lose against the BRITISH, as in British Columbia.

Hockey is THE life in Vancouver. Luongo should not show his face in public or he’ll be in the hospital. Believe me.

Bruins fan here. Very interesting series.

Canucks, a very good team with a good goalkeeper

Bruins, a good team with an incredible goalkeeper

Been a long time since I saw the B’s raise the Cup.

Luongo, I hate you more than obama.

Come Christmas time this year you'll see that picture of him making that stick save against Tampa for sale everywhere in New England.

When Chara raised the cup I wondered if it had ever been held that high off the ground.

I had a materal uncle who was a devoted Bruins fan, who has been decesed for a number of years. He would have been so very happy tonight.

I feel bad also for the fans of Vancouver and the Canunks are a very good team, but the Bruins brought their A++++ game tonight.

Boston is now the new “title” town, with ALL four teams in a space of over a decade’s time, Patriots, Red Soxs, Celtics, and now the Bruins.

“greatest playoff goalie performances of all time - Tim Thomas.”

Let me say “Ken Dryden.” 1970 and 1971 were ruled by Ken Dryden. His team was fair... maybe good, but not good enough. He was amazing. Thomas was very good, approaching a Dryden-like performance.

That’s why I said “one of the greatest playoff goalie performances”...I remember Ken Dryden from the 1970s and he was probably the best of all time. 1.65 GAA in his rookie season...2.24 GAA in his entire career!

I loved the Bettman sucks chant. It reminded me of the boo birds here in Wings country where he's despised.

I'm happy for fellow Michigander Tim Thomas. He's older than me, and won the Conn Smythe Trophy. I was still a kid when Recchi first started playing with Pittsburgh.

I don't like Burrows or LaPierre, but I liked the Canucks and hope Kesler (another Michigander) gets his cup someday. He was Vancover's best player.

I expect Luongo to get traded soon.

The Canadian Cup drought continues

I don't think there will ever be a team like the 93 Canadiens. I don't even like Montreal, but I liked that team. 10 Overtime victories. I don't think even Scotty Bowman's Canadiens or the 80's Islanders were that good in OT.

You are correct. We love hockey so much...and hate losing goalies. Luongo will need 24/7 security after tonight.

Yeah. Every canadian kinda hates Bettman because he’s American.

It's more than that, although that rubs salt in the wounds up there, eh? We don't like him here, either. Two lockouts, basketball background, Foxtrax (because us Americans supposedly couldn't follow the puck....thank God for CBC). Bettman just keeps changing the game, too.

He's just a bad commissioner.

It wasn't too long ago that Sidney Crosby was scoring in OT to give Canada the Olympic Gold Medal. In Vancouver!

I won't make any derogatory comments right now against the country of Canada, because I know full well that it just takes a few drunk a**holes to make the larger population look bad.

But I'm guessing that the sports networks like ESPN will be ripping the city tomorrow.

(BTW - I think ESPN SUCKS!)
