Well "neutral", neutral about the Canucks and don't like the Bruins so I guess i'm rooting for the Van Boys eventhough if there is no Sedin magic this time around they are truly the champion of meagerness (roughly translated from the dutch "kampioen van de armoede" i.e. champions because the rest was even worse ).

Exciting match so far, worthy of Game 7. Too bad I can't keep my eyes open , let's see if a little powernap will work

Boston wins the Stanley Cup!
Not exactly what our Vancouver friends were hoping for. But still, it was an exciting series and the Boston team was deserving.
There is no reason for Vancouver to hang their heads. I just hope that the media in Vancouver don't make Luongo the scapegoat.

Boston was the better team tonight. Congrats Bruins

The goalie, Tim Thomas, will continue on, but the 43-year-old, Mark Recchi, all but officially announced his retirement after Boston's 4-0 Game 7 victory.
What a way to go out.
This series can be summed up in two parts: what happened before the Aaron Rome hit on Nathan Horton and what happened after the hit. Boston seemed dormant emotionally at the time, down 2-0 in the series and looking too much like "Mac" in the old Charles Atlas comic ad -- at least the pre-lifting Mac, when he got sand kicked in his face. The hit on Horton was a cheapie, but for Boston it proved ironically priceless. It gave them a rallying cry, and from there it was all different.

Canada was in a terrible condition yesterday after an ice hockey game

Shameful. I hate these rioters disguised as fans. It's given Vancouver a black eye. A Facebook page has been set up for witnesses to submit photos of the rioters. I'm praying the police come down hard on them. No more excuses.
Fed up and ashamed to be a Vancouverite today

The Canucks ran out of steam . . .

The Canucks also didn't have the experience that Boston did. Too many of their players had never played in the final series before, much less a 7th game. They took some really stupid penalties as well but the entire series was full of dumb penalties.

I double checked and all of Canucks' victories were by 1 pt. While all of Bruins' victories were by at least 3 pts..I just wonder if the Bruins could've pulled off a sweep..

Canucks Goalie Roberto Luongo Regrets Comments He Made About Tim Thomas During Stanley Cup Final by Ricky Doyle on Thu, Aug 18, 2011 at 9:16AM
After Roberto Luongo posted a shutout in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final, moving the Canucks to within one win of Cup glory, he opened his mouth and questioned Tim Thomas' goaltending style. Shortly thereafter, he inserted his foot.
Now, Luongo has said that he regrets the comments he made about Thomas and the media buzz that followed.
"If I could do it again, I wouldn't say it," Luongo said in a recent interview with Radio-Canada.ca, as translated on the popular Canucks blog CanucksArmy. "I didn't want to create the buzz that it did. After the fifth game, I had never been so emotional and I got carried away."
Luongo, of course, said after Vancouver's Game 5 win that the lone goal scored against Thomas -- netted by Maxim Lapierre -- would have been an easy save for himself.
"It's not hard if you're playing in the paint," he said of Lapierre's goal. "It's an easy save for me.
"If you're wandering out and aggressive like he is, that's gonna happen. He might make some saves that I won't but in cases, like that, we wanna take advantage of bounces like that and make sure we're in position to bury those."
Luongo later went on to state that he had been pumping Thomas' tires all series, but that the Bruins netminder had yet to compliment him in return.
So not only did Thomas get the last laugh after guiding the Bruins to a Stanley Cup victory, earning Conn Smythe honors and being awarded the Vezina Trophy, but now he has Luongo taking back his comments.
Well played, Timmy.
