A Canuck player, coach, mascot, or Zamboni driver showed up in your dreams at least once during last season’s playoffs.
You displayed a car flag, jersey, or bumper sticker.
You downloaded software so you could troll sites like Canucks.com then toggle to a spreadsheet if the boss came by.
You’ve made a road trip expressly to support the ’Nucks.
You know how many minutes older Henrik is than Daniel.
You know other arcane facts about the Sedins, such as their Grouse Grind times and the size of their bequest to B.C. Children’s Hospital.
You use jersey numbers to help remember things like phone numbers and bicycle lock combinations.
You’ve jumped, or at least been tempted to jump, into an online discussion to defend a maligned Canuck. At least some part of your home, car, or office cubicle is colour-schemed in green-blue-and-white.

You have an opinion about whether Pavel Bure is gay.
You have an opinion about whether the “Pass It to Bulis” guys are more or less astute than the Kurtenbloggers.
You have, at least once after a victory, high-fived a stranger.
Canucks were the main reason you bought a better TV.
You sometimes taunt rival fans.
You’ve begged out of a commitment because it fell on a game night.
You know whether it’s better to shave or not before applying body paint.
You think this year will be their year.
