Yup, I agree and intended to merge the information like was done for the riot this year. -Djsasso (talk) 19:47, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Aftermath section[edit]

As the current contents of this section is not directly related to the outcome of the 1993 Stanley Cup Finals, I'm struggling to justify its inclusion in this article. I can see the relevant parts possibly being included in the team history articles, but it seems too far afield to be considered as aftermath. I suggest deleting the section, pending someone providing content that is directly relevant to what happened immediately after the Finals. isaacl (talk) 06:03, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

It is also unreferenced, although there is little to dispute. Are there other cup final articles with similar sections? Hwy43 (talk) 09:11, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
Yeah I would probably remove it. -DJSasso (talk) 12:52, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
There are aftermath sections in the articles for 1992, 1995, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2010. There may be more as I only went back to 1980. Hwy43 (talk) 06:57, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
Are they reflective of the aftermath of the finals, such as "Savard was not re-signed by the Canadiens"? Covering the actual consequences of the finals is reasonable, but I don't think such a section should be a catchall for anything that happens to any of the participants at any time in the future. (In this case, also something that didn't happen to a general category of teams to which one of the participants belongs.) isaacl (talk) 13:48, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Riot section[edit]

The section currently states:

"Fans poured out of the Montreal Forum and began to commit acts of vandalism and violence while their team was celebrating inside."

Surely not every rioter/vandal was a fan that attended the game, and surely not every rioter/vandal was genuinely a fan of the Habs. I suggest it be reworded as follows:

"People poured into the streets of the city and some began to commit acts of vandalism and violence while the Canadiens were celebrating inside the Montreal Forum."

Cheers, Hwy43 (talk) 09:11, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

I could go either way. It isn't untrue that fans poured out of the Forum. And it doesn't really claim that everyone was a fan. But I can see trying to tone it down. -DJSasso (talk) 12:52, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
I agree that it is more accurate to clarify that the rioting was not necessarily originated by fans exiting the Forum. (There's a good chance the 1993 riot was primarily initiated by fans, but quite possibly from bars as well as other viewing locales.) isaacl (talk) 13:15, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
I have reworded it as proposed above. Hwy43 (talk) 06:59, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
