On the very day that 24/7 Flyers Rangers is set to debut, it's been the feud between the Vancouver Canucks and Chicago Blackhawks that has dominated the news cycle (much to the dismay of HBO, one assumes). One night after a radio interview surfaced in which Dave Bolland called the Sedins' "Sisters", seemingly everyone has chimed in, and I'm just talking about within the Canucks' locker room.
I should warn you that if you're expecting brilliantly quippy retorts, you should go elsewhere. Here's a top ten list of great literary insults. Did you know Virginia Woolf once called Ulysses "the work of a queasy undergraduate scratching his pimples"? I assure you nothing I'm about to report can touch that.
Let's start on the gentle end, as Mike Gillis had his say during an interview on Vancouver's Team 1040 radio station. From The Province:

Not that this is really news, but it's what's going on.
For those who missed it, Dave Bolland was on a Wednesday radio show with noted bullhorn David Kaplan on WGN. In this interview, in front of a live audience mind you, Bolland had some rather lame and choice words for his favorite target the Sedin twins in Vancouver.
He called them "sisters," and said they...

Chicago Blackhawks center Dave Bolland didn't have too many complimentary things to say about Henrik and Daniel Sedin - or the city of Vancouver, for that matter.
In fact, he referred to the Sedin Twins as "sisters" on two occasions on a recent appearance on Chicago-based WGN Radio.

Chicago's BlackhawksDave Bolland rips into the Sedin twins during a radio show and really has nothing nice to say about the Vancouver Canucks, no offense but I can't stand the Canucks either and I have said in the past, "that the Vancouver Canucks are one of the most unlikable teams in the NHL next to the Montreal Canadians."

I've learned to tread lightly when it comes to emasculation as a hockey chirp.
I'm a white male from suburban New Jersey who has no internal filter for language or couth; the majority of smacktalk involving gender or race probably isn't going to offend me, but that doesn't mean it isn't going to offend somebody. Alix Wright, a terrific Canucks blogger, has made...
