Popular Canadian singer Michael Buble, a lifelong Canucks fan, skated with the team Tuesday at practice. The 36-year-old hit the post on a shootout attempt against Roberto Luongo and called the experience "just the greatest day of my life, really."
Buble, a multiple Grammy Award-winner who was the musical guest on "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend, said he doesn't understand how the Canucks can be reviled around the league.
"There is no way these guys could be the most hated team in the NHL because they're class acts," Buble said. "Those are just ugly stories that the media keeps telling back East."
