Who gives a shit about the first round in a team's first playoff appearance in almost a decade.


Pretty sure the Penguins completed their finals victory over the North Stars with an 8-0 romp..

Edit: I think the stat you were looking for is the largest margin of loss in stanley cup finals game seven history. Since there have only been sixteen of them it's hardly an extensive history (ie. the sample size sucks) but surprisingly there are two other 4-0 defeats in SCF game 7 history: the 1964 Maple Leafs over the Red Wings and the 1965 Canadiens over the Blackhawks.

I won't bother to speculate as to whose was "the worst choke job" because I don't give a shit..

They nearly neat a Bruins team that for much of the series seemed uninterested in actually playing. The times when the Bruins decided to show up (about 20 minutes a game on average) they completely dominated the Leafs in every area of the ice. I mentioned earlier that the Bruins seem to suffer the same thing as the canucks the past couple seasons....they expect everybody to simply roll over for them and are surprised when they don't and they need to put forth an effort.

Perhaps you should wring the urine out of your " we are all Canucks" card...its starting to reek pretty bad... Embarrassing really :crazy:


Meds just needs to chill a bit. Tone down the cranky old man with bladder control issues schtick. Yeah, we're all disappointed with our Canucks too.

Up 4-1 with 10 minutes to play in game 7, against a foe missing their top 3 d-men is an epic choke.

Getting hammered by a foe in 4 out of 7 games with a good portion of your team suspended or seriously injured is just an epic beatdown.
