“This is Our Home,” say the Canucks

Mar 28, 2012, 2:46 PM EDT

The Vancouver Canucks didn’t actually use the word “riot” in today’s press release trumpeting the club’s “This is Our Home” public service ads.

Then again, they didn’t need to.

‘This is Our Home’ shares a message of unity, respect and civic pride using the collective voice of Canucks fans, players and alumni.

Filmed in over 20 locations throughout Greater Vancouver ‘This is Our Home’ features Vancouver Canucks captain, Henrik Sedin, alternate captains Kevin Bieksa, Ryan Kesler, Manny Malhotra and Daniel Sedin along with Canucks Alumni Trevor Linden and Stan Smyl and a contingent of passionate fans. Showcasing the natural beauty of the region, ‘This is Our Home’ promotes a simple message of the inclusive and positive nature of sports and community. It shares the values of the season-long ‘Heart of a Canuck’ tradition celebrating courage, honor, humility, integrity and passion.

For those who enjoy obvious jokes, feel free to knock yourselves out in the comments section in response to that last sentence.

For those who enjoy the same phrases being repeated over and over to demonstrate unity, here’s “This is Our Home.”

    My city… is chock full of idiotic juvenile delinquents that make such an ad necessary.

    “This Is Our Home”… Until we lose in the cup finals and burn it to the ground.

      From an outsider looking in perspective, if they lose in the Final again, i’d be worried about that actually happening (outside of the police not wanting to get embarrassed again)

        I think we’re safe from that happening…..very safe

    Which category does finger biting fall under?

      I dunno, ask MAHK SUH-VAHD. Bruins would never do anything like that… Boy the Ironing is Delicious

    Did Daniel have to be told what his name was and what city this was for?

    • elvispocomo - Mar 28, 2012 at 9:43 PM

      Duncan Keith had some free time so he called him up to remind him.

    and here come the pretzels…

    seriously.. enough with the riot.

    • banshee950 - Mar 28, 2012 at 4:16 PM

      Agreed, more focus on playoffs, less focus on last year. I’ll be first in line to tease Canucks fans the whole way, but riot mockery is as low as injury celebration. let it go, real hockey fans are better than that

  7. charlutes - Mar 28, 2012 at 4:02 PM

    The Canucks stink.

  8. hockinj25 - Mar 28, 2012 at 4:21 PM

    Too bad they’ll have nothing to celebrate.

  9. letsgosjsharks - Mar 28, 2012 at 4:24 PM

    Too bad the Canucks suck

    • bigtganks - Mar 28, 2012 at 4:52 PM

      Lol ^^ says a sharks fan.

      • comeonnowguys - Mar 29, 2012 at 12:33 PM

        Maybe he’s so used to watching badness that he’s an expert at spotting it?

  10. jpelle82 - Mar 28, 2012 at 4:53 PM

    looking forward to another embarassing playoff exit i guess…this video will definitely make sure they dont riot this time right?

  11. rdurk86 - Mar 28, 2012 at 5:11 PM

    Shouldn’t Vancouver actually win something before they put out videos about celebrations?

    • comeonnowguys - Mar 29, 2012 at 12:34 PM

      The Vancouver Heat.
      The Miami Canucks.

  12. kitshky - Mar 28, 2012 at 8:46 PM

    Brough … why? You know what juvenile idiotic comments you’re breeding here.

    “Hey guys let’s take a nice video made for the fans of a city that actually mentions nothing about celebrating anything except some frgn civic pride, a chance to give people who didnt participate in any sort of riot a little voice… and trash it with the same tired lame “jokes!”

    (Wait, did a Sharks fan just say the Canucks suck? Is that because they’re perrenial playoff chokers …oh waaaiit)

    I think fans in Calgary could beat up the fans from Vancouver.

  15. kbmorgan1 - Mar 29, 2012 at 9:56 AM

    And yet again the Canucks set themselves up to be a laughing stock…even as a fan I wish I could muzzle these guys sometimes…how many of the teeny bopper “rioters” are even going to watch this? They would have been better to do a viral video on Youtube.

    As for the haters that will inevitably come out of the woodwork, have fun with this one. The Bruins and Blackawks geniuses should have a ball.

    Talk about a contrast in teams and priorities.

    The Bruins players get crappy haircuts to support a childrens charity. http://prohockeytalk.nbcsports.com/2012/03/28/brad-marchand-had-his-hair-massacred-for-charity-today/

    The Canucks make a video urging their fans not to burn down the city when they get knocked out of the playoffs again this season.

    • griznasty - Mar 29, 2012 at 1:15 PM

      Yeah the Sedin’s combined 1.5 million dollar donation to BC Children’s hospital says what up.

      • griznasty - Mar 29, 2012 at 1:18 PM

        Not trying to belittle what Marchand did, obviously everything counts and good on him for supporting a good cause. But just bringing up two completely unrelated PHT articles just because the timing is convenient isn’t really fair.
