Shawn Thornton Embarrasses Canucks Writer Tony Gallagher on CSNNE

Following the Boston Bruins' narrow defeat at the hands of the despised Vancouver Canucks, CSN New England's hockey segment, "Sticks and Stones", invited Tony Gallagher of the British Columbia-based tabloid The Province on to talk about the game.

The conversation, inevitably, turned to Dale Weise's rejection of a fight with Shawn Thornton. While Gallagher was toeing the Canuck party line, Shawn Thornton was getting mic'd up for an interview, scheduled to follow Gallagher's.

"Sticks and Stones" producers then thought it'd be fun to allow Thornton to refute Gallagher's idiotic claims. Hilarity ensued.

Video after the jump

Thornton: "He's 180 pounds?"

Gallagher: "...Well...uh...40 pounds...20 pounds...same thing!"

Wow. Thornton just annihilates Gallagher's arguments, and while wearing quite the dapper suit, if I do say so myself.

This has to go down as an all-time classic in the history of New England sports television, right?

And, SCoC members, how can you be the most hated team when you have no toughness? How can you?

UPDATE: The Province's "Legion of Blog" has fired back at Thornton, Michael Felger and CSNNE, accusing CSNNE of "ambushing" Gallagher (though after Felger said that they were going to put Thornton on, Gallagher said "bring it on"), call "Sticks and Stones" (quote)"childish"(unquote), AND goes on to make fun of Thornton's awesome suit.

It's safe to say that everything about The Province sucks now.
