Being a Canadian, I am embarassed and shocked by the actions of the young people that have shamed our country with their behavior. I think there would have still been the same outcome if Vancouver had won, I hope the police throw the book a these hoologans when caught! BTW, Congrats to Boston, game well played!

I’m sure I can speak on behalf of many Vancouverites. This is truly an embarrassing moment in Vancouver the World has to witness. Unfortunately it was a large group of young men & women who had intentions of doing this no matter what the outcome of the game was. Can you imagine the horror for the parents who witnessed their child on the news behaving in this manner? Teach them a lesson and call the police because you're doing them a favor.

This is not reminiscent of what Canuck fans are about. There are many fans across the province and in Vancouver tha*****ched the game and didn't react like this. Disappointment yes, and even some self-deprecating humor but this was not what the vast majority of us are about, we lost fair and square. This was a group of people who many believe were going to riot either way because they thought it was "cool" in the end they looked like idiots. Young, foolish and yes some older and foolish who embarrassed the rest of us with their behaviour. Hopefully those responsible will be brought to justice and we will definitely cheer that on!

I hope they throw the book and those who purposely went down there to start the riot!!! It sounds as though they weren't hockey fans at all - just people who like to cause trouble, then mob mentality took over. What a sad mess! When they are caught, and they will be - they should pay for all the damages - and then lock them up with the internet hackers!

My apoligies Vancouver folks. I have realized the ones that did all the riots, fires and distroying buildings IS NOT the typical locals

Those idots are gangs that intend to do nothing else but make trouble regardless if a loss or win, thy would do the same
I;ve made a few trips to Van and always so very nice people. That is what shocked me to see all this on the news this AM.

Now I know, it isn't the typical Van folks,or Canuks fans, you would not do this

I hope the police has all those idots in jail now and make them pay GOOD

Congrats Canuks and Congrats Boston. Both a terrific job well done

I was watching the TMZ. The Vancouver Canucks kicked ass they didn't win. But The Jerks who destroyed a beautiful city the whole world like TMZ saw what happen. But they didn't see the whole thing.

You didn't see the real fans and peole coming down to help clean the city up that is true Vancouver Canuck fans. I would love to see TMZ to come down to Vancouver BC Canada to see what a beautiful city we have with out putting the wrong story about the riot that happen.

Rainee: Yeah, our pro sports leagues. Why is that so difficult to comprehend? We don't need canadian teams in any of our leagues to be successful and when Canada is given the opportunity you F* it up. You can't support anything other than your hockey (Montreal Expos and Vancouver Grizzlies anyone?) which is a very violent sport. It's no wonder there was mayhem after you lost. Believe me if we hosted the Canucks in Boston and there were riots the likes of which you had there, you would be ALL over it busting on Americans. It's your favorite past time next to giving each other concussions.

I pity any American who had the misfortune of being on the road the night of the Canucks loss. It wouldn't surprise me at all if there were some traffic fatalities as well.

What many folks don’t realize is Vancouver is the Canadian equivalent to San Fransissyco here in the US very far left city.

These idiots were not the typical Canadians they were your college age anarchist brain washed by their socialist egghead professors. Nothing some a good strong dose of teargas, free flying batons & Tasers wouldn’t cure

Since this rioting also happened in 1994 when Vancouver lost in the finals...why would the city put up giant viewing screens and encourage mass crowds to gather downtown again? The geniuses who came up with that idea are at fault. The Boston fans had to hit the bars to watch the game.

Yes this is very sad nd it should nevver have happened. What bothers me is the comments from everyone, if youu watch more videos other than this loser getting a nut shot you will see that there were many heros alike. Ranging in age from late teens to a senior cittizen. However there where more on the wrong side and if people kept getting in their way they would beat them. Than the following morning a FB group was orginized for the cleanup and there was a huge number of volunters. I take my hate off to you all from putting your well being in danger to the many volunters. That is what Vancouver is about, that is what Canada is about. GO CANUKS GO...next year.

p.s. one thing that is good, is Weiner is getting far more coverage on TMZ than Vancouver, GO WEINER GO.
