Stanley Cup Riots Vancouver

How would Toronto react to a game 7 Cup Finals loss?

After watching the post Stanley Cup riots in Vancouver with equal parts fascination and horror, it's probably only natural to wonder if a similar situation could erupt in one's hometown. Barring the fact that the Leafs aren't likely to go that deep in the playoffs any time soon, with the one-year anniversary of the G20 and all the troubling events that accompanied it on the horizon, images of burning police cruisers and riot police are easy to recollect around these parts.

Needless to say, however, losing game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals ain't exactly the same context as a gathering of world leaders. In fact, aside from the visuals, they're hardly comparable. So we took to Twitter to gauge what our followers had to say about the possibility of something similar ever happening in Toronto.
