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.

Lil wayne is a bruins fan
Wow, I didn't think Lil Wayne would make it onto a hockey thread. Before this gets any weirder can we just admit that this was an act from some goofy kids and move on. Every team has idiots that follow/root for them but no real fan would ever bring religion into it and deface a place of worship to get a misspelled message across. I hope they catch the morons that did and I hope Lucic lights up Vancouver for a hat trick the next time they play.

Do you get it?  I'm guessing cbs misspelled it b/c the vandals mispelled "Canucks".

I love how everyone wants to blame something like this on every single canucks fan like we approved this at some kind of canucks fans general meeting....all in favor say aye!


Lil wayne is a bruins fan, should I assume every single one of you idiots condones illegal gun possession and drug use?  Why don't you morons out there grow a brain and realize that whoever did this couldnt even spell the team name right and can hardly be considered fans, let alone the accepted ambassadors for our team and city.

I did the same thing Evil#2.  I'm guessing it must be a Swedish thing.

. I just can't call these guys Canucks fans.
Yet if a few guys in Philly do something stupid, they're obviously fans and every fan of the same team is just like them.

To everyone posting comments,

If you think that this immature stunt was done by anyone over the age of 16 then you are sadly mistaken.  Save your anger and outrage.

I guess Canuck fans figured this is the building or piece of their own property they haven't destroyed since the stanley cup loss so they just had to damage this building in some way too. Also, the fans have to take shots at Milan because non of their players can get the job done against him. Milan will knock each player on the team out without doubt.

CANUCK FANS _ GROW UP AND LOSE WITH SOME CLASS. NO WONDER THE WHOLE HOCKEY WORLD HATES YOU ALL
