Or it could make sense if they're being asked by the media after a game whether injuries played a part in their defeat.

It makes absolutely no sense for fans to say that to each other because, unless you're an imbecile or are Bruce Willis in Unbreakable, you would have to know that if you can't skate, or be in full control of your stick, injuries will cause a drop in performance.

Anyway, I really hope the Canucks win the cup one day so I can have a massive rant on this without being labelled a whiner.

It's a shame that the canucks even taking the series to game 7 with that list of players out or playing injured doesn't get the respect it deserves. To take a team as good as Boston and Thomas play out of his mind to 7 games with that busted lineup was a amazingly gutsy playoff performance.

The amount of hatred that has blinded people to recognising this is disgusting
