An appeal from Vancouver Canucks fans.
I speak for the level-headed and rational Canuckleheads from the Canucks board to stop the back and forth thread hijacking and trashtalking that's going on over at the Canucks board and the Trades and Rumors board. I'm sure you've all noticed some coming the other way. In case you're wondering "what's this silly anglo talking about", check out the Canucks board with any thread containing Mats Sundin's name in the title. You'll find about 1 of every 4 posts is a Montreal loyal cursing and putting down the Canucks, while I would imagine outlining why MTL is, in their opinion, a more suitable destination for Sundin to sign.
While, I completely understand that there's a good chance you've got just as many immature little hockey know-it-alls as we do, it's something that needs to stop. It's immature, and in poor taste.
So from a Canucks standpoint, lets call a truce for now, I think we're all very frustrated that Sundin has taken so long to decide, and this has only made things worse. Most Canuck fans are MTL fans as well, as there's no reason to be rivals, and the habs play a very exciting, up-tempo style that's just fan to watch. I was cheering for MTL last season in the east, and was so stoked to see you guys take the conference.
The majority of Canuck fans wish that our team had as much history and tradition as the Canadiens have, and have the utmost respect for the Canadiens organization. When MTL fans invade and hijack threads on the Canuck boards and put the Canucks down constantly without recognizing the ridiculous depth our team has, or fails to recognize their own lack of knowledge about the Canuck roster, it doesn't do anyone any good.
While I am a die-hard loyal Canuck fan, I'm a hockey fan first and foremost, and from one hockey fan to a storied hockey fanbase, lets stop this childish quibbling and wait until Sundin makes a choice.
At that point, whichever team gets left in the dust can claim that we never really wanted Sundin, and can get on with our off-season.
Good luck in 08-09, if my team can't take hom the cup, there's no other team I'd rather see take it home, and on their century mark. With or without Sundin, MTL is going to be a force next season, and I can't wait to see what happens.
So from everyone on the Westcoast, Good luck, and may the best fit win. If Sundin does decide to play with the Habs, watch out NHL.
If Sundin decides to come out west, I hope at least we may have a few towel waivers from MTL.
I like the Nucks, their coach is a very good coach! They have Luongo! They have some good players! Getting Sundin out there would make them a much better team! Getting Sundin makes the Habs a much better team! Fans of pro sports teams are not objective...we all make a case for why we think our team is better than the rest, this whole pi$$ing match with the Nucks fans got started by people who believe their team is better than the other guys give them credit... I would love for the Habs to get Sundin, and be a real power in the East, and I have no problem if the Nucks get him to make their team alot better in the West! Good luck guys! But in the end, you will never get the other teams fans to agree that Sundin made the right choice!

BG is about as sober as a GM can be...he is so methodical in his thinking, even he doesn't know what he may do next! I do love the fact, that BG addresses the media on his terms, and I am sure he does the same thing with the players and their agents...He knows he has the $$$ and seems to be very prudent in spending...but this year, he really wants to ice a contender! That being said, without giving in to guys like Ryder who were asking for 4M per!
