Eddie Lack vs Chris Higgins: Ab Off

Earlier today, Chris Higgins took over the Canucks official Twitter account to answer some questions from fans. Apparently, he received a lot of questions about his abs, for which I feel I should take some of the blame. After all, PITB is the internet’s go-to source for Chris Higgins’ abs.

To Higgins’ credit, he’s always been good-natured about the attention. Some of his teammates, and potential future teammates, might not be.

This was Higgins’ response to the questions on Twitter:

In case you need a reminder, this is what Higgins’ abs look like:

Eddie Lack appears to be fully aware of how Higgins’ abs have endeared him to the Canucks’ fanbase and responded with a little beefcake of his own:

Lack: you’re looking Trevor Linden good. Look at that soulful stare into the camera, the casual lean against the wall. This isn’t just a goaltender; this is a potential male model. Lack isn’t afraid to show off his body, as we’ve previously highlighted his affinity for short shorts. He’s well on his way to becoming a fan favourite.

This can’t end here. Clearly, it’s time for a Vancouver Canucks Ab-Off. For charity, of course. We’ll get Billy Zane to announce it. I’m sure some of our readers would volunteer as judges and we could maybe get David Bowie as a celebrity guest judge.

One person who’s not a fan of all the indecent exposure: Roberto Luongo. Or maybe he’s taking “I’ll back it up!” as a threat.

    I’ll offer my services for guest judge. You know, for charity. Yeah, that’s it…

    I’m thinking that there just isn’t enough abs on this page. I need more proof! And of course, I completely volunteer my services.

    Eddie’s lack of Higgins-sized abs is most amusing. He looks like he should be on the cover of Teen Beat, with that one wee ab just peeking out. Funny stuff.

    It’s an awfully good thing that I’m in my room with the door closed.

    I’m killing myself with this. A prime example of why you guys are my favourite. And the Canucks. And awesome goaltenders with a sense of humor.

    Eddie Lack is our future stylin’ Henrik Lunqvist/Henrik^2.

    Thank you for making “Trevor Linden good” a thing. So valid.
