Lucic has tons of well-wishers and fans in Vancouver...........including this site.
I'm not one of them, but that's besides the point.
I would even go as far as saying that 70-75% of hockey fans in Vancouver still see Lucic in a positive light.
Who were those guys cheering Lucic at Rogers Arena at the conclusion of Game 7?
Instead - Lucic takes a few isolated incidents (all/most of which he could have prevented if he used common sense), and paints all of Vancouver with one brush based on the actions of a few idiots.
He tells the world about this, and then tells the world that he's not "defending Vancouver" anymore.
I'm not cheering this guy at the Olympics if he makes it.
I will eat my own shit with corn in it before I ever side with an Alberta hockey fan ever again........or a Toronto hockey fan or Torontonian Sports media member for that matter.
I wonder if any of those guys even mentioned the fact that TRUE Canuck hockey fans and true Vancouverites cleaned up the streets a day later after the riots. I can answer that question right now UkCanuck, but I'd like you to think about that one for a sec. What does the rest of Canada think of Vancouver?
I will support Henrik Sedin as long as he is an active player. He's my captain.
When he retires, I'll reconsider my stance and perhaps cheer Canadian Men's Hockey at the Olympics again.
Canada used to be filled with character guys like Yzerman, Sakic, Bourque, Gretzky, Iginla, Stevens, Niedermayer, Kariya, Linden,......and yes, Mark Messier. Love or hate the guy, all of his talking was done through his actions on the ice like a real man.
Now? They are filled with garbage trash talk players like Toews, Doughty, Richards, Thornton, Keith, Seabrook, and maybe this Lucic asswipe. All unbelivable and tremendous talents, yes. But classless douchebags.
A Hindu Canadian turned Swedish......coming to a theater near you. Go Sweden.
