A new favourite team emerges to land Canucks forward Bo Horvat and Vancouver fans want no part of it

The Vancouver Canucks lost to the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Finals more than eleven years ago.

Despite the passing of time, it continues to be a problem for Canucks supporters. While the fan bases of many clubs would have changed by now, Vancouver has a much more passionate following than most teams.

This is why it's easy to picture how heartbroken Canucks supporters must be to learn that the Boston Bruins are now in the running to sign their captain, Bo Horvat.

The initial report came from an editor at the Vancouver Daily Hive:


Not sure #Canucks  fans would be able to handle the emotional damage of seeing Bo Horvat traded to the Bruins, but trade talks are reportedly "picking up" between the two teams.


And soon after it was repeated by more reputable sources:




One writer gave a fairly candid assessment of the issue, saying that the Bruins consistently win trade deadline sweepstakes, like the one for Hampus Lindholm last year.


One can imagine that a player on the roster, some selections, and the prospect Fabian Lysell would be the main components of the deal.

Vancouver supporters may find it difficult to accept, but it's possible that their captain will win the cup this year even if they won't be wearing their uniforms.
