NHL tells Vancouver car dealership its Go Canucks Go sign is a no go
Manager mystified about why he was singled out from a sea of hockey enthusiasm.
The NHL has told a Vancouver car dealership its "Go Canucks Go'' sign is a no-go.
Kingsway Honda was displaying the booster phrase along with a Canucks logo until it got a letter from the NHL, ordering the business to remove the sign because "Go Canucks Go'' and the team's logo are protected by copyright.
General Manager Doug Lum says the dealership has changed the sign to read "Go Nucks Go'' -- but says he doesn't know why the dealership was singled out when the city is a virtual sea of Canucks enthusiasm during the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Meanwhile, the NHL has also come down on a promotion by Vancouver radio station Rock 101, where fans could take a sledgehammer to an old van bearing the Blackhawks or Nashville Predators logo.
The promotion was a fundraiser for the Make-a-Wish Foundation and used a sign saying "crush for the Cup'', and although there's no picture of the Stanley Cup, the league handed the station a cease and desist order.
Rock 101 promotions director Aaron Buckley calls the order ridiculous but says the station will comply.
