Girlfriends of Cory Schneider and Milan Lucic engage in the most confusing turf war ever

Milan Lucic and his girlfriend claim Grouse Mountain for the city of Boston.

We’ve seen some bizarre battle combinations in the ongoing rivalry between the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins. Brad Marchand versus Sami Salo. PITB versus Touch & Wilbur. Shawn Thornton versus 88 guys, Kill Bill-style, followed by a round with end boss Tony Gallagher. But now, it would appear, that we have another unlikely dispute: Cory Schneider’s girlfriend versus Milan Lucic’s girlfriend.

According to Lucic’s girlfriend, Brittany, Schneider’s girlfriend told her off at a recent game just for wearing her Bruins hat. This tell-off even included the taunt of English archers. How do we know? Because Brittany took to her Twitter account to voice her disapproval.

I personally take offense to the directive to “control your broad”. My wife can do whatever she wants. Like, I wouldn’t particularly want her flipping off other women, nor would I want her making man-children everywhere titter by publicly airing petty grievances like this. But if that’s what she wants to do, that’s her prerogative as a free woman I don’t control.

Now I guess I’m supposed to rub my hands together gleefully and shout “girlfight!” or make some sort of hair-pulling joke or whatever, but I really don’t have time for sexist drivel. There are battle lines to draw here, and it’s going to take awhile. This is the most confusing turf war ever, and I once mediated a groundskeepers’ dispute over which variety of Kentucky Bluegrass to install on a soccer pitch.

Schneider and his girlfriend, Jill, are both from Boston. But they rep Vancouver, because Schneider plays for Vancouver. Lucic and his girlfriend, Brittany, are both from Vancouver. But they wear Boston hats, because Lucic plays for Boston. Everyone’s a double agent. It’s like a Mission: Impossible movie, but with less running.

Take, for instance, the implication in Brittany’s first tweet that Schneider’s girlfriend’s alleged classlessness is a symptom of her Boston upbringing. Isn’t Brittany, now repping Boston, supposed to take offense to that?

And frankly, Brittany’s assertion that Jill was the only Canuck fan to take issue with her hat smacks of Vancouver bias. You expect us to believe that only one Vancouver fan was acting rudely? Yeah right. And as a Boston fan, you’re supposed to characterize all Vancouver fans as rioters. Were I from Boston, I would not stand for one of my own attempting to paint the majority of Canuck nation as “VERY kind”.

But there is one thing I know for sure: Trucking is a universal profession. You don’t have to be from Boston or Vancouver to know that it’s not cool to disrespect the heroes of the road by dragging their good name into this. TRUCKERS ARE PEOPLE TOO.

Anyway. I don’t care about this at all, so I’m going to make like ICBC and lazily declare this dispute a 50/50. But I will say this: thank goodness the Canucks employ Cory Schneider and not this Corey Snyder fellow, because he and his lady friend appear to exhibit none of the character and integrity Mike Gillis champions of his roster.

    Wow I find this so hard to believe and I would like to know the alleged game she attended considering Lucic and the Bruins have not even come to Vancouver to play this year at all. So she must be having post partum game flashbacks from last year and why is this being brought up now? Could it be that Brittany is upset that the Bruins are little upset the Canucks are doing just as well this year as they did last year and the cup won’t be in Boston long, anyone could take it this year. And want to talk about classless, isn’t this like bringing up the alleged fact that Vancouver fans wrote on her church, something she brought to light without proof but she just happened to know this information. I find her tactless and immature and I for one am glad we employ this guy Snyder (lol) she’s talking about who has the best one of the best save percentages in the NHL – not bad for a back up goalie from Boston representing Vancouver #Go Canucks!

      I think I saw her on the last Saturday (that would be the game vs. Calgary). I saw a girl wearing a Bruin hat walking outside Rogers Arena (by Gate 16) after the game that fits her description. Which leads me to question: what the heck was she doing wearing a Bruins hat on a Canucks game?!

      And by the way, “Snyder’s” girlfriend wouldn’t have been the only “broad” who would have had a problem with her wearing a Bruins hat. *points at self*

          You must have missed the part where the opponent in that game was Calgary.

          So if her choice of head-gear was based upon supporting to opposing team, it would make sense, would it not, to wear a Flames hat and not a Bruins hat?

          she is perfectly entitled to wear any hat she chooses providing she doesn’t somehow pull the ponytail through the top like jane Fonda.

          However in enemy territory…..she should take her ‘fingering’ like a woman and suck it up. no pun intended.

            Sure she’s entitled to wear any hat she wants. I’m entitled to wear a hat with moose antlers and two big cup holders with attached straws on the sides (provided I mortgage my future to buy the beer in the Arena).

            But the other women will think it’s a bit odd if I do.

            Personally, I always think it’s a bit odd when I see guys in third-party jerseys at Canucks games. I get it, they want to show that they’re real hockey people, but still strikes me as someone who’s not quite on the right page for the evening.

            Exactly. To be perfectly honest, she asked for the attention, negative or otherwise, by wearing a Bruins hat (on a non-Bruins game, I might add). If she couldn’t take the heat, she could have chosen to fly under the radar and go to the game quietly. I’m not saying she doesn’t have the right to wear whatever she wants but she has to expect some sort of reaction for her headgear choice, especially in enemy territory.

            As a friend of mine always says, “Suck it up, princess.”

    Not sure that’s sexist — have you ever seen two females physically fight? Hair generally tends to get pulled, it’s just a force of nature.

    This is like saying it’s sexist to allude to ball shot during an all-male fight. Things happen in the course of action. Like ball shots.

I mean, Britt and Lucic are from Vancouver and you don’t see them cheering for the Canucks. She obviously has no logic a tall.

    Can I also say that I love how she claims Cory’s girlfriend is classless, yet when describing Cory, she says he’s a “loser back up goaltender” … POT MEET KETTLE

        I didn’t vote your post down, but I don’t actually see how this was a sexist comment. I think everyone would like to see the best of their particular group represented. This is demonstrated in Chicky’s equal embarrassment at being from the same area (two groups she identifies with — Vancouverite and female). Unless, of course, you were referring to the girlfriend’s sexist comment. There is no excuse for that “control your broad” thing. I’m glad she’s not American, as I’d take anyone who makes comments like that for a Santorum supporter. The fewer people who vote for him and his regressive policies, the better.

          Finally, something Vancouver and Boston fans can agree on, at least the women: “Well, she’s not really one of ours – you guys can take credit for her!” “No, she’s all yours – we insist!”

    Based upon the sample available, Brittany may have tried several times to spell Schneider correctly, and failing that, decided to go phonetically.

    Considering the attitude Brittany has about how men should treat women, that little incident when the Boston police had to deal with Lucic and his ‘broad’ takes on a slightly different light, methinks.

    This is how Lucic keeps his woman in line…..

    ” According to the police report, patrons outside the Four Winds bar told them that a female wearing a silver-sequined dress ran up Fleet Street crying while a man in a black T-shirt with No. 22 on it followed behind her. Police questioned Lucic outside his condo and he told them: “My girlfriend is upstairs. We had an argument. We’re fine. Why are you here at my house?”

    As the officer continued to question Lucic, he “slammed his cell phone to the ground and yelled ‘Do you know who I am?’ ” the police report states. At which point, the officer asked for identification and Lucic produced an ID from Vancouver, Canada.

    Because no witnesses observed any physical assault and the girlfriend told police she “was not touched,” Lucic was not charged, but both he and his galpal “were informed of their rights under MGL 209A,” (Massachusetts General Laws on abuse prevention) the report states.

    It was all a “misunderstanding” though. Brittany has more problems than to worry about Schneider’s girlfriend, maybe she should be getting a boyfriend who treats her like a human being and doesn’t “keep her in line”. Stop looking for attention Brittany. Why would we believe her anyway?

    Now if Brittany Carnegie was from a Southern Greater Vancouver City, not saying that she is, that would explain the classless comments… who cares about class, there is no point hiding, call a spade a spade.

    Being in the transportation industry for over 10 years, I can honestly say that I have met many many many ‘TRUCKERS’ who outclass this ‘Vancouvertie’ who feels above the rest of the ciy because a decent hockey player finds her attractive – for now.

    Most truckers are good hard working people who do what they have to do to take care of and support their families.

    All the commments made by this woman just shows how classless she is – and no, dating a famous and wealthy sportstar doesnt give one class nor manners; just money (which isnt even hers!!).

    Pathetic

    this is hilarious…as with ANY sports team, with passionate (or perhaps bandwagon if we’re talking springtime in Vancouver..) fans, if you wear any opposing team paraphernlia in THEIR building, you are bound to experience some trash talking, perhaps rude gestures (as she claims..) and that should be very well expected!(especially since the Bs werent even in town)….BTW has this girl never watched her boyfriend and the Bruins play in Montreal ever???

    as for schneid’s gf.. met schneids and his gf in vegas during the NHL awards and both were extremely nice people..however, if she did throw up a middle finger, probably unnecessary! but who knows, maybe they had some beef last spring during the cup run? and really, how are you even offended at a middle finger when your bf is one of the best fighters in the league, and apparently acts like a huge asshole to fans in his hometown?…

    What bugs me is the way so many headlines seem to be indicating that this is some sort of two-way “fight” when all we really have is one person complaining on Twitter about the actions of another in a way that does nothing to demonstrate her standing as a reliable source.

    “Milan Lucic’s Girlfriend Wigs Out on Twitter” would be a better headline.

    I also have to give credit to Cory’s girlfriend for keeping her mouth shut on this publicly.

    As for the “control your broad” line, that’s scarily offensive.

    I’m guessing, and given the lack of grammar, punctuation, and correct spelling, this is definitely a guess, that she wasn’t so much blaming a Boston upbringing for Schneids’ girlfriend’s hypothetical classless-ness, but rather suggesting that Bostonians ought to be angry that one of their own was, again theoretically, bad-mouthing their city.

    (All that said, the only reason I can interpret this horrifying “writing” is because I teach first-year composition at a state university in a state with one of the worst education systems in the country. In other words, I have practice.)

    Yeah, really not sure how this is a “fight” when only one person is “fighting”. First, it’s not “Snyder”, Brittany, you live in Vancouver, the land of the goalie controversy, while ostensibly defining yourself by your hockey boyfriend, and you don’t know the dude’s name? Second, take a lesson from the girl you’re calling out who apparently has the sense not to publicly embarass herself on the internet.

    Anyway whatever, this is all pretty meaningless and summed up best as follows: #whitetrashgirlproblems

    Too bad your editors don’t share your attitude. The link in the front page refers to a “cat fight.” I would ahve expected better from the Vancouver Sun.

    If you wanna rep your City the right way, taking to twitter to slam Schneid’s gf for her alleged “fingering” and to go off telling Schneid’s to control his broad, and calling him a LOSER back up goalie…probably isn’t the best way to go about that. Maybe Lucic should follow some of your own advice and start controlling his woman! And to be calling one of our goalies a loser….I don’t recall watching Schneid’s have a bad lose and then watching him fall as he walked off the ice and Mr. Timmy Thomas did last week. Check yourself, before you wreck yourself hunny. You might need to stay in Boston after this one!

You might have had us your allegation that she flipped you the bird, but give me a break!! Also, her saying that people were quite nice and curious about her Boston hat at the game…give me a break, people were probably saying “What in the h*ll are you wearing that hat to THIS game for…” That’s about the only question I would be asking her if I saw her! What are you even doing at a Canucks game, if you aren’t even there to cheer on either team…

    What trailor park pad number did Milan find this “broad? ” Does Milan keep the reins in on his broad? Does he control Brittany’s behaviour? GEEZ she doesn’t realize how stupid she comes across with these tweets. He must have picked up this broad from the Roxy. I believe that most admin assistant grads from Sprott shaw hang out here to move up from the trailor park pad to yaletown condo. Message to Milan…find a girl with a higher edcuation..perhaps University. Better chance of having kids with beauty ,brains and athleticism.
