They have made so many mistakes these playoffs it's laughable.

It's one of the only large cities that has experienced snow in every month of the year including July and August. I remember a time in August when it was in the 90's in the interior of BC while Calgary had snow. Calgary's weather doesn't come close to being as good as our climate.
Theyre too different to compare one as "better" than the other. I know lots of people who have left Vancouver because of the rain and overcast. The biggest difference is that Calgary has much more sunshine over a full year and Vancouver has much better temperatures over a full year.

How do you know? Running goalies isn't just a factor on the goals scored. It's a tactic to throw goalies off their game. The league enacted rules to prevent that and to protect goalies. The fact is in our two series against the Hawks, the league has looked the other way on those infractions clearly benefiting a team like Chicago.

That 5th goal was so over-the-top illegal that no objective person that knows the game could believe it counted. How could the officials have allowed something so clearly and blatantly illegal? Why did they? The league was left with no choice but to concede it was a mistake. That was a case they couldn't lie about.

Mike Milbury thought it was a good goal. Enough said about him.

Vancouver's summers (including May and September) are usually relatively dry and warm with lots of sunshine. There's a reason Vancouver has a USDA plant hardiness zone of about 8, while Calgary's is way below at 3B.

Yes I said objective and knowledgeable. Milbury was a dumb player and easily one of, if not the most incompetent GMs in NHL history. His analysis is usually worthless.

I actually liked Mike up until the playoffs. This is at least the second time he's gone through a video package and said everything was down to "bad luck." Then Hrudy jumps on him and says it has nothing to do with luck and explains why. He has no idea about tactics in the modern game. How this guy was ever a GM for so long, I don't know. Maybe, it was bad luck for the Islanders.

I'll take the odd freak snowfall, over not seeing the sun for 30+ consecutive days anytime. I'll take -10 and sunny, over +8 and pissing rain anytime.

This is Canada, were in most areas they actually get 4 seasons.

Vancouver has 2 seasons....The rainy season and the cloudy season. Who cares if it's warmer throughout the year.

That's absurd. Summer in Vancouver is awesome. Not ludicrously hot but usually very nice.

Wait, what the hell does this have to do with shoddy officiating?

Speaking of successful teams, the Hawks look great right now, Oilers are sitting pretty with the #1 overall pick...and Vancouver's still relying on the 7th man to get them past round 2.

Im not trying to troll, my biggest issue is the look on AV's face after EVERY call. Comedy at its best.

Yes, Oilers fans do pay attention to the post-season. Hockey is Edmonton, Edmonton is hockey. Vancouver misses the playoffs and everyone forgets....pretty sad for a Canadian city
Dude, I actually feel sorry for you that you have to live in edmonton but please do not come here and try claim edmonton's superiority to Vancouver in any way. Unless of course you consider an abundance of snow, flat prairies, rednecks, and irrelevancy positive traits of your city.

This is a PR move by the NHL to show there is no bias in the officiating, which of course is ********.

Are you kidding? It's exactly the opposite. People have joked about Canada having only two seasons, Summer and Winter for years. The only place in the country where that isn't true is southcentral and southwestern BC, maybe parts of S. Ontario and the Maritimes. The plant hardiness zones tell the true story.

Yeah, Vancouver is wetter in the Winter no one disputed it. It occurs in one season, which your annual averages deliberately ignored. The issue was that some thought the Summers were as well which is false.

Plant hadiness zones tell the story of Vancouver being in a rainforest and nothing more. The mushrooms, mosses, and slugs love it!

Mad Mike as he's known around the league was almost solely responsible for setting back the Islander franchise many years in development and success. He's a buffoon.

The averages didn't deliberatly ignore jack squat, they aren't "mine" either, theyre simply posted facts...Anyway those are the numbers, sorry if you cant handle them.

Now go plant some flowers in your wonderful "hardiness zone."

Who cares about the ****ing weather? Flames/Oilers fans need to go back and talk about who they're going to draft or how the hell they're going to get rid of their overpaid and undertalented forward group.

Again, you're out of your depth. Averaging over a year doesn't tell the full story. The precipitation in Vancouver is dominated by a few Winter months.
