Three Reasons We Like The Vancouver Canucks

Photo by Jeff Vinnick/NHLI via Micheal Ferland, Kevin Bieksa and a line brawl. What more do you need? Rivalry Week So, as Rivalry Week winds down we came to an agreement with Nucks Misconduct that we'd each say some nice things about each other's franchises.
