Even when they're not playing, the Blackhawks-Canucks rivalry can get heated. During a broadcast of "Blackhawks Live at Harry Caray's" on WGN-AM 720 on Monday, Dave Bolland made some comments about Daniel and Henrik Sedin that didn't sit well north of the border.
Bolland called the talented twins "sisters," and wouldn't back down from the comment when asked if they'd still be sisters if they ever joined the Blackhawks.
Well, theyll never become Hawks, Bolland said. I don't think we'd let them on our team. We'd be sure not to let them on our team. And, yeah, they probably still would be sisters. I think they might sleep in bunk beds. The older one has the bottom one, the younger one got the top.
Canucks coach Alain Vigneault didn't appreciate Bolland's comments and fired back at him Wednesday according to TSN.ca.
When you have comments like Bollands, obviously (its) an individual whos IQ is probably the size of a bird seed and hes got a face that only a mother could look at, Vigneault said.
