The saggy titted bitters or “columnists” employed by the Vancouver Sun were all full of the snark this week as the overhyped and eternal non-champion Canucks rolled into Long Island. The columns in their dying papers spoke of the Isles as “perrenial doormats” and the like, before they bitchslapped Vancouver 2-1 in a shootout on Monday night behind another stellar outing from the McDonald in net. Howie Rose was all how ya like me now after the win, and the responses were desperate  excuses related to the ice combined with more thumb sucking about the Islanders being bad.


They talk often about the lack of the “C” on the jersey for their drip captain / goalie Roberto Luongo (his teammates call him “Louie”) also.
