Final Thoughts About The Final.

 

 

Listen to Mike Gillis and his post game interview. Sounds smug, arrogant and is spending his time making excuses for his team losing. Not once has anyone from Vancouver given the Bruins credit for winning, and acknowledging who had the better goaltender. The series was won because the Bruins were the better team when it counted.  Plain and simple.

Here’s a few observations after the dust has settled:

* Tim Thomas! Congratulations on a superb series.  You answered to the critics which included your opposing goaltender.

* Before the playoffs began who would have thought that Brad Marchand would become a household name.

* Bobby Lose…… Keep your mouth shut.  Try stopping pucks instead of giving advice.

* The only thing missing from the crying, and complaining by the Canucks organization is some cheese to go with the whinning.

* As you see in the above video, Mike Gillis doesn’t once give Boston credit.  No class.

* Mark Recchi congrats on ending your career the way most players only dream of.

* The Canucks are blaming injuries, scrums after the whistle, and poor officiating for reasons as to why they lost.  How about, your goalie gave up soft goals, your twin sisters were non existent, and your team wilted under pressure?

* The Canucks say that there won’t be sweeping changes for next year.  Of course, who wants your losers anyway?

* Boston won without Nathan Horton and Marc Savard.  Good teams find a way to win.

* Vancouver thought they won it all when the beat the Hawks.  Someone forgot to tell them it takes 16 wins for a Cup Championship.

* It was a physical series, and even though the Canucks had the edge in hits, the Bruins were more effective with theirs.

* Thank goodness Zdeno Chara woke up after the first two games.  He may have been hurt, but we may never know.

* Is it time to break up the Doublement twins?

* How much longer can Bobby Lose stay in Vancouver?  I bet someone is regrettng that 12 year contract.

* How much longer can Alain Vigneault stay in Vancouver?

* Imagine if Cory Schnieder actually is given the job as the number one goalie!

* Ok, raise your hand….how many of you thought the Canucks would win game 7?  Thought so.

* Is is October yet?

    Your post is full of bias in favour of the Bruins and arrogance in the fact that you didn’t watch the full interview.

    I watched the interview yesterday, and he (Mike Gillis) said the better team won in the end. I expect you to redact that part of your article and do a better job reporting next time.

    Should we expect anything less than this reaction out of Vancouver? Pierre McGuire even stated that the Canucks organization was completely and arrogantly dismissing the Bruins, and that an ultimate win would be a foregone conclusion. So relieved not to see the likes of Burrows and Luongo skating around with the Cup. Thankfully the hockey Gods didn’t allow it!

    WOW. You never see GMs rattle off detailed lists of his players’ injuries in an excuse-like fashion. Everything was from a slash?? Man-up Mike G, give the B’s credit. Think they weren’t dealing with injuries?

  • Carl

    You guys are so off with your comments. You ignored my first comment and didn’t see that they acknowledged the B’s, and said he’s not going to say what all the injuries were because that’s not an excuse.

    Some of the Canuck players were not even going into full details because they said it’s not an excuse.

    Maybe you should not get your information from the biased media like this author, as well as a biased media guy like Pierre McGuire.

    I can only comment on this video which is the only one that I saw. It’s a bunch of excuses all related to slashes and cross checks. He speaks smugly about how his players were playing hurt.

    Last year didn’t the Blackhawks win the Cup with a player who played with a fractured shoudler (Andrew Ladd), a player with a leg and shoulder injury (Marion Hossa, and a player who took a puck in the mouth and lost 7 teeth, but missed only one shift?

    Vancouver needs to man up.

      Yeah, come on Carl. You’re clearly very biased towards Vancouver. Also, I’m not sure if anyone has told you the difference between ‘news’ and ‘blog’. Most people realize that blogs are petty much opinion pieces and the writer can write whatever he/she pleases. You want news, go to ESPN, you want different perspectives and opinions, read blogs.

    What a load of shit. Try writing like a professional instead of a 13 year old girl.
