Another thing or two worth mentioning on the riot in Vancouver: more than a few hockey fans I've encountered love to crack on the UFC as being brutal, ignoring that UFC competitors do not fight with bare hands, and UFC as being a bit trashy (and there is something to that, albeit not universally). But when the UFC rolled into Vancouver just this past Saturday, there wasn't reports of a single fight before, during or after the event, nevermind burned out cars and looted stores. Just saying. Another point: this whole "it wasn't fans or people of Vancouver" is a load of shit. Get your head out of your ass if you buy that naive pap.
Left over from Wednesday is this gem of a quote: "These two teams hate each other but they despise each other". Buck Martinez? Nope, Donald S. Cherry, enemy of the English language and reason, between periods of Game 7. I even rolled back the PVR to make sure I heard it right. Damn TFC and New England had to be not only at the half, but at commercial, so ended up seeing the old dino.
One thing missed in the realignment discussion of Wednesday: two 15-team leagues would necessitate there are interleague games every day of the season so a team isn't left sitting.
