I do not think I am capable of not following the canucks, they are an obsession predating anything else I do. I know that not all the players are completely embarrassing themselves, us and the game (I do not know what I would do with out our defensemen) just as I know that it was only a small portion of canuck fans who rioted after game 7 and embarised us, our team and the game. But what else I know is that those fans that did not participate in the riot were there and let it happen (there are a couple exceptions) just as there are players on the team who need to stop this from continuing. Lets do what fans are supposed to do and raise our voice to encourage them to act.
We are the most hated team in NHL and it is well deserved, I know cause I can only ever be a canuck fan and it is getting hard not to hate myself because of it.

There's an understatement.
"We need to stay away from it," Ryan Kesler said. "We haven't been doing it as much all year and with the excitement of playoffs we got caught up a little too much in it. We need to stick to our game plan, which is whistle to whistle."
Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists somewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.
It bugs me when people pull out the gold medal for an example... Luongo only had to outplay Brodeur.

Only high ground to speak from in Colorado or as a AVs fan in BC would be literal - if you are writing from a mountaintop - otherwise no moral high ground at all. Your team has and has had it's share of tools.
Ol fella, if your insinuation is that Kesler is also a "tool", I hope that this is not a reference to his underwear ad. Fair warning, Deb is watching and you had better not dis he of beast mode.
I realize that there is no consensus, but I too have regained some respect for fans on the CDC due to the backlash against Kes' antics in game one. If you are a hockey fan FIRST, and a nuck fan second, theatrics like this are simply embarrassing. It is stuff like this that makes me hate the sport of soccer so much. There is supposed to be more honor in hockey...
...and take it easy on the av fan (that's av, not av), they have plenty of troubles already
