Hey everyone, I just saw this on Boston.com (the website for the Boston Globe) and thought I'd share it:

Canucks pitch broadcast rights to Cup parade, NHL says no

 

By Fluto Shinzawa, Globe Staff

After Vancouver won Game 5 by a 1-0 score, the Canucks attempted to sell the broadcast rights to their yet-to-be-determined Stanley Cup parade, according to a league source.

Naturally, that Vancouver will host a Cup parade has yet to be determined. The Canucks must win one of the next two games to win the Cup.

The NHL shot down the Canucks' plans because parade broadcast rights are not subject to sale.

I guess it's just a foregone conclusion then - why even show up to game 6?
