I was rooting for Vancouver the whole time... and then Luongo opened his mouth about Thomas... and then after they lost, the fans did this.

Yeah, suddenly I was ok with Boston winning.

HaHa - Love it - I`m a Lifelong Bruins Fan!
I have developed a hatred for the canucks almost as intense as the diving habitants!
What a team full of panzies - their captain takes 10 shots to the head by a rookie and just takes it? And they were favoured to win the cup? Please! Bruins have way more heart (and more Canadian players) - and the best Goalie ever!!!!! LUUUOOONNNGGGOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Yeah thanks Vancouver. You just reinforced stereotypes that us REAL Hockey fans have been trying to put to bed for years, not to mention the stereotypes of your Country in general. I hope Vancouver never gets back to the finals.
@greenbasterd/ you really are a f*cking moronic retard aren`t you? Keep insulting the US while you watch the video above, makes a whole lot of sense, dumbass

This riot totally gives everyone the wrong impression on Vancouver. The ones that started it went there with intentions of starting something. Hundreds of people were hurt and more than 20 cars were torched. 11,000 people showed up in downtown Vancouver today to help clean up and fix what they could, and if I didn`t have to work I would have been right there helping. This riot wasn`t even about hockey it was about some non-nice individuals who just wanted to destroy poo. I was downtown for Monday night`s game and the atmosphere was just amazing. Last night the people there were different than they have been the past games. They will all get what is coming to them. I love Vancouver and this is just sad that someone who do this to such a beautiful city.

Your team just won the Stanley cup, but your car, the one covered with "Go Bruins" bumper stickers, is parked on the opposing teams side when suddenly a full scale riot breaks out and your car has turned into a bon fire. And if you got cut rate insurance you can be paying the damages yourself. So get Allstate, so you can save money and be better protected from mayhem like me.

"I can understand Vancouver being frustrated because the Canucks have never won a Stanley cup, but come on... This is just a pathetic fanbase."

Toronto doesn`t need to worry about riots over losing in the playoffs. lol

Montreal has riots, but it`s only a mere coincidence that there was a hockey game that night.

I was downtown last night, though thankfully not in the heart of it and well-away from the rioters. I was more heartbroken to hear about their destruction than I was to have our boys lose. I am proud of how far the Canucks got and that`s what I was celebrating last night.

As for the rioters and looters, they are a disgrace. Please realize that these are not true Canucks fans. They were looking for any opportunity to cause anarchy and I think they would have done this win or lose. They do not represent Canada, or our City.

Hundreds of citizens today flocked to the city to clean up the destruction caused by these so called `fans` and we are making every effort through Facebook to identify those who caused the destruction. THEY should pay for what they`ve done but they can never replace what it has done to our reputation.

Canucks in 2012! Go Canucks Go!

I live in Newfoundland, and everyone I know here was rooting for the Bruins. I didn`t understand it, and just yesterday asked a buddy how come East Coast Canadians weren`t supporting Vancouver, since they were the Canadian team and all.

I was expecting a lengthy explanation, which might help me to understand this strange sense of national identity. His reply was four words: "Because they`re f*cking assh*les".

I didn`t understand what he meant by that at the time. Now I do.

These are not hockey fans. As a Canucks fan and a Vancouverite, I am deeply ashamed of what a few groups of hooligans came out last night TO do. I think, even if we had won, there would have been riots by these people. There were many fans, true fans, who were trying to stop the rioting and the looting, and many true fans that showed up today to help with the cleanup with nothing more than brooms and garbage bags.

At least they got it right this time. Usually it`s the winning team`s town that gets trashed.

I doubt these are actual hockey fans: most likely they`re anarchists, anti-capitalists and other assorted nuts. Vancouver is full of nuts, it`s like San Francisco North, eh?

Same people who protest the G-8 Summits, that`s who`s rioting.

That`s surprising. Vancouver is supposed to be a great city. One of the best in the world to live actually, but when it comes to hockey, it turns into freaking LA.

I am no longer jealous of Vancouver. I now believe that I live in the best city on this side of the puddle.

Two of my friends live in Vancouver. One was actually downtown when it happened. The other wasn`t, but she wanted to go downtown later. I convinced her not to.
I`ve heard that Canucks fans are some of the worst (reason why one of friends in Vancouver hates the team). She`s told me that they refuse to admit they are wrong, and also refuse to praise any other hockey player that`s on another team. So after hearing how ignorant they are, I`m really not surprised.

The local police said it was a small group of people rioting. Small group in comparison to what? It looked like a pretty large group to me.

The people that started the riot were looking for a reason and would have started the riot even if Vancouver won. Anyone who did not see that there was going to be a riot in Vancouver last night is blind, as history has a way of repeating itself (game 7 loss in 1994 to the Rangers). Canadians get more upset and passionate over hockey that politics.

Looks like a bunch of monkeys... wait, scratch that thought. I imagine monkeys have more self control over their emotion when it comes to such trivial losses.
