Vancouver Canucks Tweet Referencing 1994 Stanley Cup Finals Loss Enrages Sensitive Canucks Fans (Tweets)

canucks tweet referencing 94 stanley cup finals enrages canucks fans

It’s been 21 years since the Vancouver Canucks lost to the New York Rangers in Game 7 of the 1994 Stanley Cup Finals. But apparently it’s still too soon to joke about the loss with Canucks fans.

On Thursday, the Canucks joined the rest of Canada in rallying behind the Toronto Blue Jays with what they thought was a clever tweet:

Get it? The Canucks lost to the New York Rangers? The Blue Jays are playing the Texas Rangers? Ranger danger, like stranger danger?

It’s not hysterical, but it’s mildly amusing…if you’re not a butthurt Canucks fan. If you’re a butthurt Canucks fan, then apparently you found the tweet OUTRAGEOUS!!!

Seriously, check out some of the responses:

Look, Canucks fans. I don’t want to tell y’all how to live your lives. But come one, it was 21 years ago!

That’s a whole person who can legally drink beer. Or in Canada, a whole person who can legally drink beer, plus a toddler. Let it go already.
