Those things are said in the heat of the moment. You might not see that kind of reaction on most board, but there's a reason for it: they don't even have a live game thread. When you have a big fanbase and a game thread (like the Leafs, the Bruins, the Habs), you will see things totally stupid being said in the heat of the moment. A lot of people, when they watch an hockey game, don't think rationally, they are impulsive, and that's what you saw in the game thread, it's as simple as that.

You might think that some Habs fan said stupid things, but saying that because of these guys the Habs fanbase isn't knowledgeable or a good one is just as fallacious, IMO.
