Another playoff series, another team taking jabs at the Canucks. Nothing to see here, folks.

I will say this, why are we getting upset at this when if anything it's flat out embarrassing that the Kings franchise realize that their only fanbase is the Anybody But Vancouver crowd.

I didn't have an issue with this original tweet, I thought it was funny.

I do, however, have a problem with this series of subsequent tweets:



This one is classless as it acknowledges, and even thanks, some clown taking shots at our fans and the riots.

What first was lighthearted humour to me turned a little sour for me right there.

Haha wow....What clowns

One tweet im fine with, can be chalked up to cockyness after a game, but the numorus replies to other reply's is truly unprofessional. Even worse coming from the official feed. A fans feed I can understand.

The Canucks twitter feed is truly the professional one for teams that are part of an international league with teams fans everywhere, not just in 1 area

I just find it hilarious this tweet was blasted off after only the 1st game and not at the end of the 1st round. Not that it will fit then either :emot-parrot:

You're welcome for what? winning one game in a possible seven game series? well congratulations for such an accomplishment then.

also, getting 1 goal on a 5on3, 1 on 5min major, 1 fluky bounce that no one could have stopped and an empty netter. They accomplished all these without the Canucks leading scorer. Bloody well done Kings

Hardly. It's stupid and juvenile for two communications accounts to be chirping at each other. It's not like the series is going to be won based on who has the most RTs.

Well..yes. Seems like Canucks fans in general have lost their sense of humour after a bad loss. I'm not condoning in any way what the Kings twitter people said, in fact it was very unprofessional...but for Canucks fans to attack a neutral party for making a joke about the chirping is going overboard.

This is not funny and very unprofessional. MG should take this to the league office. LA should be fined for this.

Sometimes I just can't believe how Mickey mouse things are with the NHL. This is not a very well handled league when you compare with the NBA and NFL. Another reason why we can't sell this sport to where it should be

Someone should remind them of the riots that that LA has had in the past either with the Lakers or if you want to go all in just mention Rodney King. California dreaming at its finest.

Was anyone else disappointed that the Canucks attempted to play big bruising hockey (something that isn't known as Canucks hockey) last night? I feel that was a poor effort to show the opposing team that the Canucks will not tolerate being walked all over.

Only problem i have is the Canucks brand of hockey (skill plus chirping) is what led them to the SCF last year. They should stick to it and respond with physicality as needed. Last night most of the plays (hits to the head, roughing) was unnecessary and was our downfall.

lol all I'm going to say is the Bruins had to come back from two 2-0 series deficits and one 1-0 series deficit to win the cup last year. I don't know why the Kings organization is prancing around like they've won already, but they better not get too cocky. They barely squeaked by last night and the Canucks weren't even on their C game, nevermind A game.

Couldn't believe that was true when I heard it on the radio, but sure enough when I checked the official LA Kings Twitter page there it was. Classless indeed, especially when they barely beat a team that was shorthanded for more than half a period.

I hope the hockey gods repay that kind of blind arrogance with the beat down it deserves.

Making tweets like that after only the first game is pretty cocky. Hopefully the hockey gods even this one out.

At this point that is beginning to feel like the 29 other teams (and fanbases) in the league. Last night didn't help. That said it's early, nucks will turn it around.

As for the tweet, harmless and mildly amusing.

I thought it was pretty funny... some of the fun of the playoffs is the trash talk.

If you find yourself mad at it, maybe they hit too close to home.

I personally don't care if some morons in Calgary or Toronto love us or not... it must be hard not to feel resentful when your team sucks and has no prospect of NOT sucking for the foreseeable future.

That just made me want to send an email to my brother in Calgary and ask him how his team is faring in their playoff series...
