Milan Lucic Brings Stanley Cup to Loserville a.k.a. Vancouver

August 12, 2011 4 comments

(CBS Sports)– The Stanley Cup continues to make the rounds among the Bruins, and now it’s Milan Lucic’s turn. He was the player that had the honor of raising the Cup in his hometown, being met with a mixture of cheers and boos. As we have seen already this summer, a lot of players like to bring the Cup home and share it with the public, but Lucic won’t be doing that seeing as how rough some in Vancouver took the Canucks’ Finals loss. There was even a party slated for a beach that was scrapped due to fear of hooligans ruining the day. Instead he will have a low-key affair (The Bruins Blog) at his Vancouver home with some family and friends. It’s the smart move, but that doesn’t make it any less sad to hear.

Poor Milan Lucic can’t even throw a baller beach party in Vancouver to throw mud directly in the eye of Canucks fans without fear of having rioters show up and ruin everything.  Look it Vancouver, guys that win the Stanley Cup get to do whatever they want with it.  Lucic is from Vancouver so if he wants to throw the party of the year to celebrate how his Bruins totally kicked your ass…that’s his right.  I know Vancouver has never won a Stanley Cup in their 40 year history, but I mean it’s still Canada…they have to know that they deal.  They must have heard of how other teams celebrate championships, right? Sucks that these losers won’t allow Lucic to party with Stanley in style.

Lock of the Century: Stanley Cup Finals Game 2

June 3, 2011 Leave a comment

Boston Bruins +165 @ Vancouver Canucks -195

 

I want to say that the Bruins deserved better in Game 1, but that would be incorrect.  Tim Thomas deserved better.  Vancouver was the superior team, and their skating advantage was obvious.  Tim Thomas was superman in Game 1.  General rule of thumb is that I hate goalies, but Thomas is different.  He has incredible passion and never stops fighting.  Boston must get to the net in Game 2.  All of their chances came from the outside.  Luongo has a history crumbling when guys get in his face.  The Bruins were physical in Game 1, but it seemed like the Canucks were often the ones initiating.  Boston needs to be the “Big Bad Bruins” in game 2.  Milan Lucic…I am looking in your direction. 

Bruins will play desperate, Thomas will shine again, Bruins win a close one.
