VIDEO: CBC Commentators Think Canucks Should Take Run At Tim Thomas

In the third period of Game 6 on Monday night between the Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins, Jim Hughson and Craig Simpson of CBC felt that the Canucks needed to put some more jump into their game.

In short, they needed to send a message to the Bruins that they weren't going to go down without a fight, despite the lopsided number on the scoreboard overhead. Uh, the way they advocated that might not go over well. 

Simpson: Now if I'm a Canucks player, I think you just have to -- even if you take a penalty, you've gotta get some bumps in. I know you're opening up a can of worms, but if I'm Raffi Torres, you've gotta establish a little more of a body position. Right now you've got a 5-1 game, but you've gotta get inside and bump [Tim Thomas] around a little bit.

Hughson: You mean, have like a speed wobble as you're driving wide and accidentally on purpose run him over?

Simpson: Absolutely, absolutely. [Roberto] Luongo's not in at the other end, and it doesn't necessarily bode well for [Cory] Schneider, but you're not going to do that in Game 7 of a nothing game. So here's the time if you can to try to make an impact. 

Yes, let's go take a run at Tim Thomas. Brilliant idea, CBC. Anyway, remember what happened last time somebody got close to Thomas? Heh.
