You're telling me a goalie who gets hit in the head by a 260lb wildebeest going full speed without expecting it while trying to maintain the play isn't allowed to fall backwards?

Get a grip. He's allowed to fall over without it being a dive. He was full out pushed over, it's not a big deal to admit that part. You aren't going to be any less of a fan of your team. I happily call out Luongo when he dives, but that isn't one of them.

...anything for people to rip on Luongo. I'd feel bad for the guy if he didn't suck so hard in the finals.

Really? That wasnt even close to full speed. It was yet another dive by Bobby Lou in an attempt to draw a penalty.

You go in net and take contact from Byfuglien driving with the puck towards you and try to maintain your balance and then you can talk back...

It's a Hawk fan talking. You can't honestly expect him to admit Byfugly was in the wrong. The same way most of us Nucks fans can't stand it when the Sedins get called names.

The thing is the Sedins can change, Byfuglien on the other hand is always going to be a dirty POS. He was the only reason I REALLY hated the Hawks in that two year span where we got our ***** handed to us.

Can they?. Can the Sedins toughen up with experience?. Sure hope so. The Hawks show grit, as did Boston last June, character & fight, bounce back up, as do many of the Canucks, but not enough, collectively. Put the other guys away when theyve got their foot on the throat.

The Canucks are sorta like a WWE wrestler. They have different rivalries, story lines and feuds with different teams.

In the early 90s the Canucks and the Winnipeg Jets were competing for the final playoff spot in the Smythe division, and then the Canucks would play the Jets in the playoffs as well. They had some heat, with Mike Peca taking out Selanne, etc.

Vancouver and Calgary have always had a rivalry.

In the early 2000's the Canucks competed for top spot in the NW division and had an intense rivalry with Colorado (Bertuzzi incident pretty much killed it).

Canucks also had a rivalry with Minnesota.

Now its the Hawks.

Or, rather, the Avs stopped making the playoffs while the Canucks got better, making it too one-sided to be a rivalry.

Honestly, if the Canucks and their fans didnt choose to make it such a bitter rivalry it wouldnt be much of a rivalry.
In the eyes of most Hawks fans, Detroit is still a bigger rival than Vancouver is because of the history.
If Vancouver and Chicago continue to be the 2 dominant teams in the west every year it will continue to be a rivalry but if either team stops being a playoff team, the rivalry will die because theres really nothing that makes Chicago and Vancouver rivals. Its not as if its a divisional rival or a border battle.
Agree with most of what you said here, but don't act like this rivalry is beneath the Blackhawks and their fans and started solely by the Canucks and their fans. Playoffs breed rivalries and both teams and their fanbases are instrumental in driving it. Sure, Detroit may be the Hawks traditional divisional rival, but Calgary is probably viewed in the same light by the Canucks.

Don't care what anyone says, since 2009 this has been the best rivalry in hockey. Both teams are awesome. Even if their respective fanbases sometimes leave a lot to be desired.
