Sportsnet radio host and TV personality Sid Seixeiro laid one of his infamously emotional rants on the Vancouver Canucks on Friday, after the team was pasted by the Dallas Stars 6-1 the night before.

Seixiero ripped Canucks GM Mike Gillis and the Canucks' roster for the loss, but also for a disastrous 2014 season and a catastrophically quick downhill slide from Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals to a team (now) scrambling to fall short of a playoff spot three years later.

(In summing up the Canucks' game against Dallas the night before, Seixeiro simply played the Benny Hill theme song and stared into the camera.)

Sid's thesis: the Vancouver Canucks owe their fans an apology.
