Stand 'Rupp' for your rights

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Stand 'Rupp' for your rights

Saw this link on Sportsnet. I wish there was a bit more of this in the new NHL, thats one thing noticablly different lately is the lack of respect on the ice.

Also it's just fun to see a guy get the crap kicked out of him with two punches :twisted:

I wish we had someone who could stick up for Naslund and Luongo. IMO they are badly disrespected on a regular basis. Example Sundin on Naslund and Bataglia hacking Luongo in the head with his stick before he scored.
Gino woulda gone topless and beat thier whole team for either one of those incidents.
Is Toronto a dirty team?

Proof positive why fighting should stay in the game and the instigator rule removed. Hockey, for many reasons, is one where players need to police themselves and it worked very well for a long time until the instigator rule came in. Some idiots think the American audiences won't take to hockey because of the fighting (ie-Dryden. Hall of Famer but as pinko a Liberal as you get), but I would say more Americans would get into it if there was fighting in the game. It's all about accountability and there's no amount of rules and penalty calls can replicate it.

Oh man I miss Gino... I too wish we had someone who can throw down with authority. Lets hope Cowan's a tough bastard and can do a bit of that.

Here's some Gino nostalgia:

Gino a shootout specialist?

Best gino clip ever
Man I love this guy!! I love the title of this clip too, "Gino odjick goes mad and wants to kill everyone on the ice"

Ahhh Gino
