But remember, if you absolutely need someone to dominate in the playoffs when you have a two-man advantage, the Sedins are….well, a candidate.



Your other neighbors there in the West have Cups and Hall of Famers and classic uniforms. You? You have a statue of a guy bitching about the refs immortalized. Oh, and Trevor Linden got a gate named after him. All your so-called rituals are stolen. Your Green Men? Taken from "It's Always Sunny." Your towels? Preceded in Pittsburgh by a decade. Your PA announcer's "Woo!" after goal announcements? Taken from your most recent conquerors. Your colors? Whaler-colors. Your original logo is the most perfect, non-descript in every way, giving no indication as to what you are or what you do.

I doubt there's been a team and fans that the rest of the hockey world took such glee in watching them fail. Now you can stop wondering why everyone hates you, like the kid in high school who ratted out the biggest party of the year to the faculty and wonders why he isn't a hero. You can stop invading our blogs to look for love, like your goalie who needed it from the opposing stopper.

Love the PuckDaddy quote from Jonathan Toews: "If god was a city planner he wouldn't put a sewage burning plant next to a playground, would he? So it makes sense he wouldn't put Vancouver next to Chicago on the Cup. Amirite??"

Credit goes to Jason Segel, or whomever wrote that line in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It's from the scene where Jack McBrayer is trying to figure out how to pleasure his new wife.

That was glorious. Pretty much summed it up perfectly, even if it was meant to be a roast.

While we're on the subject of Mike "I would have gotten away with it if it weren't for these meddling refs" Gillis, you can't really complain about officiating when you have Raffi Torres(notes), Lapierre, Burrows and Bieksa roaming around.

LOL it's crazy how many people from all over the hockey world have finally had their eyes opened to what fans in Alberta have known for years.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Based on the comments of a few people I follow on Twitter, it seems Canuck fans took that article only slightly better than they took Fleury's prediction.

So, so typical.

Having lived in the Lower Mainland all of my 31 years (Flames Fan since I was 7) I've had to put up with enough BS from the lackluster following that is Canucks fans.

I'm SOOOOOOOOOOO happy the rest of the league (and quite a few of their fans) finally sees what I, and every other fan of the teams in the Canucks division have seen for years and years. They're a team that bases their whole strategy on embellishing to get powerplays, and scoring on them, then defending that lead.

They combine Hockey and Soccer. I call it Sockey. Others may call it Hoccer. Either way, the league all knows it now, as do the refs (very important). Even their GM is a crybaby, so of course it'll move on down the line.

What can I say, watching their fans cry after being up 2-0 and basically treating Boston like they weren't in the Canucks league was one of the greatest sporting moments of my life.

The sentiment I agree with, but that was terribly written, IMO.

Loved it especially at the end when he talks about 7uongo and his pictures. Yep, Lou is the biggest gold medal fraud and the blog should be pasted in your locker so you never ever play in the Olympics for Canada again. The mayor and his staff will get worked up at this line in the blog.

Apt that it's "Where The Streets Have No Name."
They don't now, you burned all the signs.
