You have no idea if he did or not. Maybe he felt like he had to an took am excuse to easily cancel? We have no idea...

I know if it were me I wouldn't be having any type of stupid public celebration or parade if I won a significant sports award...

Besides a couple Bruins fans coming in and throwing around insults (which will be tenfold here), yep, no outside interference.

Was there actually an incident or some threats or did this just get cancelled pre-emptively?

EDIT: The only people who are trolling in this thread are "how else are people in Vancouver/BC going to see the cup? LOLOLOLOL"

Answer: When the Canucks win it, and when a BC boy wins it and brings it home literally every other time besides this one.

I've seen the cup twice in person. Once at the hockey hall, and once when Rod Brind'Amour brought it to my hometown.

If anyone ever thought that hockey fans are these macho, jock types they should come to hf boards.

So easily offended and sensitive.

Agreed, and the OP has been known to create "controversial" threads in the past.

This thread is way too easy to troll. I will respectfully decline and wait for a more challenging opportunity.

If this isn't a troll thread now, it will be in 10 minutes.
This is the first I have heard of this story and I find this thread quite informative

this does not do much to help convince others that the riots were all non vancouver residents and it was alcohol and "in the moment" emotions that caused all the problems.

Its august, let the guy give back to the community. I bet the kids/families who could have seen the cup are all very happy that now they will have to fly to toronto to visit the HHOF

Oops! Bad assumption by me. I wouldn't know, I didn't read it on either board.

Carolina won in '06 with a few players from the EDM area, including MVP Cam Ward. He brought the Cup back to town to celebrate. As far as I know, he was treated well.

Remember, ALL Vancouver fans, you me... all of us. We were all in on this. Everytime something happens it means we were all in on it!

As for the original article, like I said on the thread in the Vancouver board... Lucic should have the right to celebrate with the Cup! He earned it, he deserves it. A few bitter fans should be called out for what THEY are.

But it is clear the OP is trying to paint the entire fanbase with the same brush, and most posters here are all too willing to oblige.

This sucks...maybe they should have it that only people sporting Bruins jerseys can get in...

Unfortunately thanks to some sore losers, the rest of those who were waiting (fans of Lucic and not family members) for him to bring the Cup to Vancouver won't be able to see it.

So, some posters got doodled on and a couple of guys punched each other.

Lucic has every right to celebrate the Cup how he wants, whether it be very publicly or in private, but this doesn't seem like a legitimate concern that should cause him to alter his plans. But if that's what he wants to do, it's his day. Maybe he feels better safe than sorry.

Difference was, Carolina won the cup fair and square.

How come every time a negative story comes out of Vancouver there is "never a reason to post" it? That rule doesn't apply to any other team on these boards.

Seeing as how I don't read through the Vancouver or Boston boards I wouldn't have known about this and it is an NHL related story so it sounds appropriate to me.

How many threads did we see about the Pat Kane cabby story? What came out of that other than a villainizing of Kane? I didn't like reading about it, but it was a newsworthy story that had every business being posted on the main board.

Who cares? Lucic should be smart enough to see that celebrating like that would start problems.

The Canucks fans didn't puch Lucic like Kane Punched the Cab driver.

There is a remarkably stark contrast here. For you to even compare the 2 is asinine in of itself.

Someone defaces a poster = Punching a Cab driver

Anyways, a thread started there 2 have already been closed on the exact same topic...

BINGO! /thread

It was interesting to check out Craigslist after the riot to see how many things were being sold from Surrey.

Edmonton has won a few cups before.... we haven't. Not saying its an excuse but they are different situations.

I'd say your spot on there.

The poster doodle and a few rowdy fans punching each other probably isn't a reason to worry, but there was that huge riot a few months ago, so that changes peoples perception of what might happen.

I feel bad for the majority of fans in Vancouver who would have enjoyed seeing the cup. Especially the little kids, most of who probably could care less who Lucic is, and just want to see the Stanley Cup in person.

I agree that it deserves to be on the main boards. I just wish we could all at least act like adults here. There is no need for comments from certain posters like "what a shocker" or "how else will they see the Cup?", but I believe it was the third post in which a Canuck fan preemptively brought up how this was going to be nothing but a troll thread. Both sides are to blame. One side adds nothing to the conversation except "wait for the trolls" and the other side does nothing but provide them with what they are asking for.

This is definitely worthy of being discussed, though. A public appearance with the Cup has to be cancelled because some "fans" are being little babies still? Not the most riveting story, but it's certainly better than another "Who's Better? Crosby now or X in his prime?" thread.
