A Bit of Squid - April 28th

Welcome to our home. (via

Well, last night the final Western 2nd round seed was taken as the Red Wings destroyed the Coyotes to earn a matchup with the Sharks.  In the last 2 weeks, hockey fans from all over SBNation have been uniting at Five For Howling to cheer for the Yotes and/or against the Scum, but now that the Yotes have lost the battle, the bandwagon is moving.  Most of the crowd will be moving over to Fear The Fin, to continue the battle against the Wings.  However, some of these people will be coming here to support the Canucks.  There will also be increased traffic here and at Second City Hockey because of all the Blackhawks and Canucks fans wanting to chat with each other about our series.  Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to fill everyone in on our basic guidlines here.

We here at Nucks Misconduct are very friendly people, and love having visitors over from other sites.  What we do ask of visitors, however, is to follow by this rule: you are allowed to diss the players, but not the city or the poster.  As for language, curse words are allowed and used rather frequently, especially when the Canucks get scored on.  Also, if you post images or gifs, please post titles on them, or you'll have me freaking out at you.  The titles will shrink the image or gif so that people with crappy internet connection won't get as much lag in the threads.
Also, a message for my fellow Nucks Misconduct people:  when visiting other sites, act with the same respect we ask of visitors here.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to read this and understand, and bring on the fun!  Links after the jump.
