    No Surprise - Canucks Crying Over Lucic

    Should any of us have expected to not hear from the Canucks on this issue? Burrows is claiming he now doesn't know whether he can hit goalies or not since Lucic wasn't suspended. I guess the rest of the league is confused about whether or not it's OK to bite people since Burrows wasn't suspended.......it's funny that Luongo was less concerned about it than Burrows.

    Screw the nucks and any other team who don't have the common sense to connect the dots on intent. That's what it's all about. Shanahan's ruling focused on intent.

    It isn't open season on goalies, rules are in place and calls will be made in accrodance with them.

    Burrows can go pump Lou.

    this is the difference between the bruins and most every other team in the league...when the b's players were being investigated for their misdoings(and their reactions to their guys being unjustly hit), they all chimed- it's a league matter- not our concern- we have to focus on winning the next game. heck ference even called out his own teammate after his bad hit. dez... you and i had it out after this happened? i was ok with it, you not so much. there's taking care of your business, like a professional, and there's whining and crying. I HATE CRYING AND WHINING FROM GROWN MEN. i don't like it from kids either, but at least you can blame it on their immaturity.

    ADK, I still question the reasoning of calling out your own player but you make a valid point. I can't think of a situation where the Bruins complained about a league decision regarding another team. Seriously though.......Burrows complaining about a lack of suspension.......unbelieveable nerve on the guy. Nerve must be what Burrows has instead of bravery.
    BTW, hope you had a good time in Albany.

    Unbelievable from Burrows.  Any reporter would be extremely negligent in not following up to ask him if biting is legal in hockey.  I mean, it must be if you weren't suspended right Alex?  Isn't that the logic we're employing here? 

    Bitterness is ugly, Alex.  Shut your mouth and play hockey.  Pun intended.

    I'm confused.  When did it become standard practice to to talk to 3rd-party players about stuff like this?

    Maybe they should start interviewing NBA players as well.  It's not like they have much else to do.

    And the Canucks just keep on going and going. They are like the energizer bunny except more annoying and more yellow than pink, although I think we can make exception and say that both colors would be fitting.

    This, I think, is part of the territory for the Champs, especially when the superficial story that was broadcast far and wide was that the Bruins bullied their way to the Cup and the League let them get away with it.  So, now, every time there's a Bruin involved in some kind of incident, they're going to ask every team that has any kind of history with the Big Bad.

    I'd love them to ask former NBA players like Mahorn, Moses Malone, Bill Russell.  Love to hear those answers.

    Since when did the opinion of an idiot who bit the finger of an opponent in the Stanley Cup Finals become relevant? He needs to shut up and go away.

    he wasn't suspended for biting, so I'm not sure wether I can do it or not. Worry about your declining overrated game Alex.

    Face it, Bruins fans.  You guys are on the wrong side of this one.  The NHL GMs are meeting, to try to strengthen up protection for goalies.  It's amazing how differently the shoe looks when it's on the other foot.  Last June, Aaron Rome was the devil himself for the blatant, dirty, cheap shot he took on Horton, and now, when Looch runs Miller, it's all Miller's fault.

    Quit being such brutal homers and try to look at something objectively once in a while. I know some of you here are doing so, but you're in the minority.

    The vast majority of commentators, fan polls, etc. are saying that they disagree with Shanny, and that Looch should have gotten something, anything supplemental (even a fine would have sent some message).  The way this is being interpreted is: "go ahead and run the goalie, you'll have to kill off 2 minutes, but that's the total price for taking out the other team's #1 goalie" -- and that's the WRONG message to be sending.  If you actually believe that Looch couldn't have pulled up and avoided the collision, then go ahead and keep drinking the kool-aid.

    When you say vast majority do you mean fans of teams who the Bruins beat last year and are jealous of them? I'll call out Bruins fans for being homers but I hate people who'll condemn one for being  a Bruin worse. Plenty to worry about their in vancouver without taking a bite out of this Lucic thing.

    Really? Please provide a few links because I haven't seen this vast majority. As a matter of fact, there's a link on another thread in which Brodeur and Hedberg agree with the decision but why listen to the best goalie ever when Alex Burrows disagrees.....?

    In this story, SI's Stu Hackel cites the tsn.ca poll:

    In this one, Kerry Fraser says why he disagrees with Shanny:

    TSN polls are 98% populated by Leaf and Shab fans - objectivity!

    SI has a 30+ year anti-hockey campaign to maintain.

    Fraser's interpretation is lame, lazy, and inconsistent with the way he called games.

    What else you got?

    100% correct, Book. I LOVE going on TSN and seeing all the thinly veiled comments that are anti-Bruins. When "leafs4eva" disagrees with the ruling because of the non-existent Greg/Colin Campbell connection, you just have to sit back and laugh.

    And lets not forget about this famous CANUCK incident......

    "In March 2004, Bertuzzi became infamous for his on-ice attack against Colorado Avalanche forward Steve Moore, punching him from behind in retaliation for an earlier hit by Moore against Bertuzzi's teammate Markus Näslund. He was suspended indefinitely by both the NHL and the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), but was reinstated in August 2006. Bertuzzi was conditionally discharged in a British Columbia court and was sued by Moore in both Colorado and Ontario. Moore was forced to retire because of the injuries sustained in the on-ice attack"

    Oooohhhh how quickly they forget.  Whats that saying about glass houses and throwing rocks????

    NHL GMs are a bit livid over the ruling.  Yet, Book is correct for where was the cry on the Cole hit?  North, protect the goalies... at what point does a goalie have protection when he is racing for the puck?  Or when he covers the puck to freeze play?  The NHL will debate that issue before you can revel over the Bs fans being homers!  Reality!

       Your still cheering for a team that is totally despised outside of Vancouver, so you can stop with the kool-aid remarks, because your drinking your own version.
    I was on record last year, before the finals, saying how great it was to have the bruins playing Vancouver, because they were my favourite Western Conference team. It took me 3 games to completely turn agains them, because of all their bush-league antics.
    Your on a Bruin website, complaining about an incident that was deemed by the NHL league office, as NOT deserving a suspension, and you think were the ones with a problem?
    I think the COLE incident was MUCH worse than any transgression by LUCIC, but that could be the kool-aid talking.
    Would it have made LUCIC look better, if he had dove out of the way (hopefully not tearing a knee ligament), and been caught completely behind the play, if MILLER had sent the puck up to one of his players, for an odd-man rush.
    When MILLER made the decision to put himself in harm's way, he should of realized there could be a collision, and accepted the consequences.
    Instead of putting on his big-boy pants, he chose to wear his panties, and cry like a little girl.
    If MILLER had missed the puck, he would have been guilty of interference. Now, that would have been funny.
