In response to islamorada's comment:
You have some credibility. Nice job with the predictions. Now back to reality, only the Canucks play perfect hockey with Truth, Justice and the Canadian way. Rome's hit on Horton was clean, heh? Thomas won the Cup all by himself, heh? Luongo was not the reason for the Canuck demise in 2011, the referees let the Bs win the Cup, heh? And yes they cost the Canucks the series this year, heh? Read Kennedy97s or LRH posts on how to disect the teams they support and comment openly without bias on the Bs and hockey in general.
In response to 49-North's comment:
Oh, and also, I don't edit my posts after they've been responded to, in order to cover up a mistake.
I'm a Canucks fan. Guilty as charged. As a "true" fan, I will attempt to rationalize things from the point of view of a Canucks fan. Particularly in an emotionally-charged series, things will be thought and things will be posted which, in the cold light of reflection, may not have been 100% defendable. I think all "true" fans are guilty of these things. Otherwise, can they be considered as "true" fans? Is there not an element of "fan-aticism" at play? I think we could quite easily find evidence of the same here amongst Bruins fans.
Does that make me a bad person? Does that mean that I know nothing about hockey? I don't think it does. I think it simply makes me a fan of a different team. If I was a Bruins fan, I'd be shoulder-to-shoulder with all of you.
Why do I come here? Because I'm also a hockey fan, and I take an interest in things that other hockey fans are talking about. Also, because of the 2011 Final, I felt a desire to defend my team from some of the things being said in here about them. Just like there are Bruins fans and Hawks fans who will do the same at Canucks fan forums.
There will, of course, be darts and jabs exchanged. For the most part, they're in good fun, and in keeping with the nature of the rivalry. I try not to take negative comments directed at me too seriously, so I hope that others can do the same.
