Hey everyone, welcome to "The #Canucks Week in Tweets!" Every week, I plan on bringing you the best of the Canucks on Twitter, from the reasonable to the totally ridiculous (okay, mostly ridiculous)! If you see a tweet you think should be featured here, get in touch with me at @cullenthecomic!

Didn’t your parents ever tell you not to tell anyone you’ll be home alone? THIS IS SO DANGEROUS, JASMINE!

Though to be fair, watching the Canucks play lately might be more scary than anything else that could possibly happen.
