Enemy pro: Lots of Canadian gold-medallists.
Enemy con: They are absolute scum.
As many of you are well aware, I became a Canucks fan in the 2005-2006 season. The season after that was the one where I first got to watch the Canucks in the playoffs. That series against the Stars was incredible. But then, in the 2nd round, came the Ducks. They wiped us out in 5 games and went on to win the Cup.
Sure, many of you on the blog hate teams like the Rangers of 1994, the schadenfraude-worthy Flames, or the current Blackhawks team. But for me, the hatred I developed for the Ducks in 2007 still lingers deep inside me, coaxed by the dirtbag-ness of some of their players.
So tonight, it's duck season.
