The riots left 150 people injured, including 14 police officers, while Vancouver's structures and reputation took a hard hit.
A furious BublÃ© - who attended the game - has financed a campaign to identify the culprits in the city's newspapers after being left "disgusted" by what he saw.
He tells Vancouver's The Globe and Mail, "I was crushed. I felt sick inside. I'm so proud of my city and any chance I get I promote it. I tell people how great we are. It's crushing to have a legacy like that tarnished by some losers.
"They're (rioters) trash, basically. It was gutless and disgusting behaviour. That mob mentality could have killed somebody. I'm disgusted by what the rioters did to the city.
"I'm disgusted by how they made us look, but I'm more disgusted by how they destroyed the privileges that we deserved to have. We should be able to have television outside during the playoffs, and have viewing parties, and people hanging out, being peaceful. They took that away from us. It's easy to sit back and complain. Let's do something about it. This is not going to happen in my city, to our city."
