As fans we can only ask for fair officiating. Since, the boston series we haven't seen any of that.

The NHL knows as a Canadian market team the fans will always come to the games and buy their team merchandise.

Well we can simply not buy merchandise, tickets, centre ice etc.

Now, there will be a lot of nay sayers, but so be it.

Personally, I'm a half season ticket holder who will not be renewing and will be cancelling my subscription to NHL centre ice.

Our team wasn't given an equal opportunity, was this partly the Canucks fault? of course. They weren't good enough.

But 2 games in this series went to OT, both games offered questionable calls.

This series should be 2-2 right now.

That seems like a bit of an overreaction.

Why don't we kill them instead?

Watch Bowness somehow mess up Tampa Bay's already amazing 2 powerplay units...he'll probably tell Stamkos to do drop passes from centre ice, take him out from the faceoff dot, and place him infront of the goalie :lol:

Right behind you. Haven't given the NHL a dime since the lockout and won't be contributing to any TV ratings.

The NHL is a joke and I'd rather watch WHL, football, or lacrosse than this pathetic excuse for a league.

Million Fan March to show the big wigs that we are the 99%


We'll burn em outta their caves or their holes or their downtown Manhattan parkside luxury mansions or wherever they live!

Or we can just take it up the behind because they know how much we love hockey and how much we love our local teams.

But I will definitely not be giving any money to the NHL ever again.

First of all these boycott things never catch on to the point where they make a large impact.

Second off all the Canucks will lose money this way so then we are screwing ourselves in the process.

If ownership knows why, maybe this will motivate them to fight back harder.

Totally agreed.

The only thing we can do is on a personal level.

any drop in revenue coming from the canucks is a message. it doesn't have to be significant, but they won't get my $5000+ I spend a year on this team.

Every truth is self revealing and obvious.

We sense the truth and are outraged.

Now,it is up to each individual to do as he or she sees fit.

I am going to cheer on Team Sweden and watch some skilled hockey.

This WWF hockey act is killing me.

"I haven't been a supporter of the Canucks for long. Mainly because firstly I knew nothing about NHL GL and secondly ESPN America only started showing NHL 3 years ago. I was unattached to any team when I first started watching although I could easily have gone for the Philadelphia Flyers as my home team which I supported in my youth and for 20 years was the Fife Flyers."

I can't stop going to the games, but I like the idea of a March. Just like the Bertuzzi march (I was there), it will get some exposure. FB groups are effective also.

I think.....hope. That a change in management and attitude towards .......diving from both players and coaches could be enough to sway the league in our favor. Might take another year, but it will be longer if something isn't done about it soon.

My personal belief is that its not about Canada vs US. Its more about us wining the cup on the PP that we got by diving and embarrassing the league.

The whole romance surrounding winning the Stanley Cup. Is built around an out right knock down drag out battle. What do we give them....our best player gets punched in the face three times and what? Were waiting for the ref to lift his arm. Its not money, it entertainment first, that makes the money. And we aren't giving the league something to sell.

And they certainly aren't gonna have a boring SCF.

Next year the fans should just start a "refs you suck chant" at the start of every game till they stop being biased.

That would get some attention.

Won't happen.

Too many Canuck fans don't understand the game well enough to figure it out. They sincerely believe that everything is on the up and up at league headquarters because people like Ray Ferraro tell them it's so.

The best way to change the NHL would be a product boycott by all of the fans of all teams disapointed by the league. If we were to send letters and effectively boycott Subway, Budweiser and any other advertiser that comes on every commercial break the NHL would be forced to listen, money talks loudest
