The Vancouver Canucks have two rabid fans in the form of Green Men who are known to taunt opposing teams players, but they have announced that this season will be their last. We take a look at some of their best moments.

The Vancouver Canucks' Green Men announced Friday that they will retire their suits at the end of the NHL's 2014-15 season. The pair got the idea for the Green Men from the show It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Force and Sully have been entertaining Canucks fans and taunting visiting teams since 2009. 


The superfans can be found next to the opposing teams penalty box. Dancing and "clever" signs are often part of their method to throw off the Canucks opponents, which has made them a topic of debate in the past. 

In honour of their retirement, take a look back at some of their best moments from the past five years.
