In Response to Re: For Null... : Why would NBC care who won the Cup, you ask. Marketing 101 my friend. You don't dish out $2 Billion for TV rights in America and have a team from Canada as your poster child for your new sll day sports channel. I'm beginning to think all you homers are hitting the juice like Thorny is.

They already made their money before Game 7 hit. The whole point is to generate a Game 7, or at worst case, a Game 6. Apparently, you have no idea how this ratings concept works. I'd suggest talking to someone in the business, before mouthing off about what you think you know or what you believe to be true.
You felt you were entitled to seeing your team win and you can't get past that embarrassment. That's your problem. Suggestion for the future: Never feel entitled as a sports fan.
It doesn't matter who wins the Game 7 since the money had already been made by NBC. The Game 7 itself was just a bonus. Each team held serve at home, and in reality, the games in Vancouver in 1 and 2, if anything, could be seen as a bagjob deluxe in FAVOR of Vancouver.
Pansy Burrows literally bit Bergeron's finger on national tv, wasn't ejected nor was he suspended.
Game 5 in Vancouver was also a game that saw Vancouver be given plenty of breaks, but that is to be expected for the home team.
It's pretty pathetic that you're here in March of the next season unable to get over the loss, not pointing the finger at your poor leadership with from the GM, the coach and the players on down. Your team was arrogant, immature and got out-played.
Anyone and everyone who watched it, saw this. Your teamed EEKED out wins at home, while Boston blasted your team off the ice.
Enjoy Luongo. You ain't going anywhere with that. lmao
