Vancouver Canucks blogger Richard Hodges weighs in on the topic of being Canada’s team. When their teams are out of the playoffs other hockey markets want to talk about the series that involves the team from Vancouver that beats their teams on a regular basis. A team getting attention on Hockey Night in Canada and TSN. Plus a team with Ryan Kesler, and Alex Burrows could never be Canada’s hockey team.
It’s 2011 Vancouver Canucks vs. Toronto Maple Leafs (West vs. East) smack talk time. Next up is the Maple Leafs, and Richard has 5 reasons he can’t stand their hockey team. Did you know since the Canucks entered the league, neither have won the cup. Ex-Canucks GM Brian Burke and his golden boy Phil Kessel hope to change that. Ryan Kesler, and Roberto Luongo stand in their way.
