Milan Lucic's church in Vancouver vandalized

The vandals left this in their wake. (Vancouver Sun)

By Brian Stubits

OK, isn't this Bruins and Canucks rivalry going a little too far now? I mean, it probably crossed that line a while ago but if you didn't think it had, this will probably change your mind.

The above is a photo of Bruins forward Milan Lucic's family church back in Vancouver, his hometown. It was taken by Lucic's girlfriend Brittany Carnegie after some vandals thought it was a good idea to deface it in the name of the Canuks. Sorry, I mean Canucks, got confused after looking at the handiwork of some obviously hardcore fans.

We took some photo editing liberties to tone it down, so in case you were wondering, just by any off chance, what the entire image looked like/said, here's a description from the Vancouver Sun.

On the side of the St. Archangel Michael Serbian Orthodox Church is large, black graffiti that reads “F--k Lucic” and “Go Canuks (sic) Go,” along with crudely drawn genitalia.

“This is DISGUSTING!” Carnegie wrote. “Punks did this to Milan beloved church! So disgusted!”

Lucic hasn't been exactly treated kindly by his hometown since the Bruins beat the Canucks in an intense seven-game series. Posters of him have been defaced in the city and a brawl broke out when he showed up at a Greek festival. So yea, he's kind of a big deal there.

I'd admonish the hockey fans of Vancouver here for giving themselves another black eye, but I can't. I just can't call these guys Canucks fans. Isn't it a requisite to spell the team's name right to be called a fan? This had to be the work of the same type of fan who decided it was a good idea to wreck their city after losing the final game.

Speaking of which, the first sentence has been handed down to a rioter and it was for 17 months. Granted, said rioter had a history that greatly contributed to that sentence so it was abnormal, but point is we should start seeing some more soon.

In the meantime, let's leave this rivalry on the ice. That's more than entertaining and heated enough already.

A great point about the shamelessness of Vancouver.  Like everything else shameful in this city, the riot was just swept under the rug.

Milan Lucic's church in Vancouver vandalized

09-07-2011: Late last night at about 1:30, likely coming home from the Shawn Thornton Dropkick Murphy's private concert, Milan Lucic was questioned by police outside a Starbucks. This all came after the police observed Lucic yelling at his girlfriend, while she was on the ground. The police found no visible injuries and Brittany was adamant that Milan hadn't touched her. During the police questioning though, Lucic apparently slammed his cell phone down on the ground and said "Do you know who I am?" to the police. Classy.

What's the shock here, that not all Canucks fans are such nice, law-abiding good-natured people?  I think TWO riots following Stanley Cup Finals losses would've proved it by now that they can be as classless as any other group of fans that take things way too far.

The story has garnered little interest here.  I can tell you that the opening home game of the season featured a 20-minute tribute to all of the wonderful Canucks fans, police and firefighters who helped clean up the mess.  There was never any real admission of guilt, or feeling of shame from the front office or city.

It's a hockey team, and a hockey player. If it moves you that much to post stupid comments, you really need to reflect on your life.

The thing that most upsets me about this article is the fact that dirty-ass Milan Lucic actually goes to church.  Bet he elbows the alter boy when he takes a run over the priest during communion.

Ok, this was obviously done by Lucic in an effort to make Canucks fans look bad.  What a goon.
