The riot squad is moving in now. Impeccable timing.

Kessler can keep his chin up - the man played hard every game.

It would have been interesting to see what would have been if the Canucks had Hamhuis, Rome, Raymond, Samuelsson, etc.

that was hard to watch, Kesler is the only one that showed a glimpse of not leaving anything left in the tank, it's too bad he was alone.

Boston is a great team, I don't think the Canucks should be too upset.

I do feel bad for Kesler, he and burrows were the only two who consistently looked hungry for it.

Congrats on a great season 'nucks. too bad your "fans" aren't as classy as your team is.

i'm a has been, trying to be a never was on the comeback trail.

The fans at the arena showed a lot of class; they did us proud.

Then the cameras went outside… :(

http://www.theprovince.com/sports/Canucks+played+despite+brutal+injuries/4954145/story.html

Edler - two broken fingers [HTML_REMOVED] irritated his recent back surgery
Erhoff - shoulder
Higgins - foot
Dan Hamhuis - torn groin muscle
Kesler - groin and torn hip labrum (those fricken hurt)

I'm sure a lot more injuries will show in the next few days…

We played hard,but Boston clearly looked like they wanted it more. That was a disastrous game 7 effort put forth by the 'Nucks.

Don't forget Hansen, too bad he's not as effective as the other two. And, of course Malhotra
was out there getting banged and banging…blind.

Message to the media:

Do not call these asshats fans or protesters. They are quite obviously neither.

My wife has a uncanny facial recognition (she's recognized people she knew in 5th grade
while they were on vacation walking down the street in Waikiki), she's positive there were
at least two people that were on camera last night breaking shit that were on camera
breaking shit during the Olympic "protests".

The people that were out there causing trouble were ready for it, win or lose. The damage
they caused was premeditated, and if caught should be doing hard labor.

On the bright side, you've got a fully-functioning civic society, great healthcare, public education that works—what else is there to riot about but hockey?

High taxes, the price of beer and dairy?

This about sums it up (from the Toronto Sun):

For as much as Luongo endured his struggles at the TD Garden and to some degree in Game 7, the Canucks inability to generate many goals against Tim Thomas was the biggest reason they lost the third Stanley Cup final in franchise history — adding to the disappointment of the Game 7 loss to the New York Rangers in 1994 and the clean sweep against the New York Islanders in 1982.

Henrik Sedin (one goal), Hart Trophy candidate Daniel Sedin (one goal, four points) and Alexandre Burrows (two goals, one assist but all in Game 2) were held in check, as was Selke favourite Ryan Kesler (one assist).

we did outshoot boston in the game, so can't fault them there… Getting one of those early whiff's would have made all the difference. Once Boston had the lead they could pinch all game long.

whatever bub - not like it isn't true for me and a lot of other people.

Ya sure. I'll let you know when I'm done counting the rep from that post.
