The Vancouver Canucks are not interested in getting into a war of words with Mark Recchi.
After the retired Recchi called the Canucks "the most arrogant team I played against and the most hated team I’ve ever played against,” Vancouver defenseman Kevin Bieksa fired back in kind.

Vancouver looks to continue its recent domination of Colorado and hand the Avalanche another home loss Wednesday...
