Cobie Smulders is a big Canucks fan and there always seems to be lots of talk about the Blackhawks vs. Canucks rivalry, which is becoming of the best NHL bloodfeuds. This site’s third highest ever trafficed single post is a collection of ten extremely attractive Canadian female celebrities.
from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,

“Yes, absolutely,” the Canucks captain answered when asked if the officiating standard has changed this season.
“I think it’s too late now, but going into next season you’ve...
Few hockey teams dislike each other as much as the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins, a hatred that grew out of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals. But, with the events of the past week fresh on everyone's mind, we're reminded of an interesting dichotomy.
