And… Vancouver is burning.
The city of Vancouver once again showed that among its citizenry there can be found a large number of assholes (spoiled white kids and aggressive vagrants).
The Canucks themselves didn’t even bother to show up for game 7. Game 7s are meant to be classics, and this game was anything but. There’s not much more I can write about it other than to say that the right team won (the right goalie, too). The Bruins deserved to win.
Thoughts on the game:
- CBC colour man Craig Simpson was adamant during the first period that Vigneault should be playing the Sedins as much as possilbe. He couldn’t have been more wrong.
- The fans booing Bettman when he came on the ice to present the trophies was classless. I don’t understand why every time Bettman speaks in public people boo him. If not for the financial systems he helped to set up within the NHL, Canadians might have one or two less teams to cheer for rather than the seventh one they now have.
Well, that’s the end of that debacle. Hopefully next year will bring better things.
