I also think the fact that for a while Boston sports teams in general seemed to be dominating and people were sick of Boston teams winning.

On and I am pretty sure the fan bases for Vancouver are pretty well hated, but I don't think this necessarily bleeds into hatred for the team.

I think Boston's team is hated and it bleeds into the fanbase.
The Campbell conspiracy theory had quite a few adherents through the Cup run. It was hilarious.

But for the most part by the time the final rolled around I have to note that most fans around HF were rooting for Boston. A significant number of course were because if Vancouver's antics, but many actually admired the Bruins.

If you haven't seen them, when you're bored sometime check out the archives at other boards for their playoff game threads. The best, IMHO, and funniest is New Jersey's, of all places.
