This is the same fan base that still openly mocks the Lindros/Stevens hit, which although clean still dramatically altered Lindros' life and hockey career. I have more respect for the select few Canucks fans who rioted than I do for the Devils fans who too pleasure from watching Lappy stumble across the ice with blood gushing out of his face.
If you were at the game, you may have a better perspective, but I was rewatching the whole horrible sequence, and it doesn't appear that the Devils fans were cheering Laperriere getting injured. In fact, there seems to be a good round of applause as he makes his way off.
