Boston-Vancouver Have Two Very Differnt Views on Toughness


"Nobody will ever respect a team that uses cunning and blinding arrogance to light their path toward Presidentís Trophies. Some might have said after watching Game One of last yearís Stanley Cup Finals that the Canucks were unfit to raise the Cup after Burrows bit Patrice Bergeron, and the hockey gods seemed to agree as the Bruins celebrated on Vancouver ice last spring.

The Bruins are the bear with overpowering strength and quick-trigger temper that sometimes gets them in trouble. The Canucks are the weasel, constantly avoiding accountability with mealy-mouthed excuses and dirty tricks.

The difference between the two teams is more than punching or marauding. Itís about how nearly everyone in the Vancouver organization carries themselves."

Boston is one to talk about taking things to the media, or being 'arrogant'. I've seen more arrogance out of the Bruins fans,media, puppets than I have from any hockey team and i've been watching hockey for 22+ years.

It's interesting seeing this rivalry blossom.

I feel as though we are the ones they perceive as whiny, sensitive, etc... but in all honesty, I feel as though the majority of Canuck fans could really care less about how beat-writers (especially!) of other teams perceive us.

It's a strange social complex brewing over in Boston and Chicago; the psychological root of which is beyond me.

"Dale Weise – all 6-foot-2, 210-pounds of him – proved the perfect embodiment of this mindset. After backing out of a fight with the 6-foot-2, 217-pound Thornton, Weise looked like a less-than-honorable figure after he’d given all the telltale signs he was ready for a round of fisticuffs. Never mind that Weise has engaged in six NHL fights this season versus Thornton’s 10, and that it appeared both players were properly matched up in the same weight class. Weise became the picture of exactly what the Boston hockey fan abhors most: cowardice and lack of accountability.
Well we no know hes completely wrong on this part. It should be

"Shawn Thornton - all 6-foot-2 217-pounds of him - proved the perfect disgust of this mindset. After butting in a fight of 6-foot-2, 210-pound Weise, Thornton made punched a hole to his "honourable fighter" title that he claimed he was
when he dropped the gloves on Weise right in the middle of beginning of an altercation with another Bruins player Adam Mcquaid. Nevermind that Weise has already fought Nathan Horton that game, Weise was purposefully made to look like a "coward" when he choose to back off from an unexpected drop of gloves by Thornton. Not only that the one that called himself "a guy with class" Thornton purposely told the media that Weise backed off a fight against him and chose to make a mockery out of it, even his teammate told the media it was a misunderstanding. Thornton is the picture of exactly what Boston hockey fans abhors the most: cowardice and lack of accountability."

Just overall a disgusting and heavily biased analysis.

Eagles soar, but weasels will get sucked into jet engines.

I think their media is jealous of the fact that our media can cover the Canucks any way they choose. We've got a whole wide range of media members from the super conspiracy types to cheerleaders to those who can't say a good word about the team.

If you cover hockey, even in Boston or Chicago, you're a joke, you're nothing, you're so far down the list of importance that nobody even knows who you are in your own market. Heck, you probably have to cover something else just to make ends meet.

Sorry but this thread gets nuked. There has been more than enough discussion about the Bruins and Canucks lately and we need to move on. The only Boston related thread we will allow at this point is the new one about Marchand's recent comments about Thornton and Weise. And please don't bring this discussion in there.

There comes a point where we must move on and that time is about here. The Blues are hot at the moment and I'll see what's happening with our GDT.


Uncle Jed, I decided I ain't gonna be a brain sturgeon.
