    Forget about rivalry between Canucks and Krakens. Love will be forever shining between these two organizations. I love her Kraken beanie

    With all due respect to Mr. Hamilton, I find it hard to believe that he, his barber, the team physician, coaches, trainers, and players didn't notice, or say something. (And yes, I've had skin cancer.)

      @Ian X I'm NOT saying the story is fake at all. And yes, I know where the mole was from the picture. You're missing my point completely. Does the guy ever look at himself with a mirror?

      @Mark G. do you know exactly where the mole was? Red is a Canucks equipment manager who usually wears collared shirts... not to mention, Nadia said he had to lift his arm to properly see the mole. Not like Red goes around walking shirtless asking the players and Doctors to look at his neck area.
      I dont understand the skepticism behind this either. The Canucks and Kraken dropped 10k on her... yet it’s hard to believe the manager never noticed the mole? Don’t see what either side would get out of faking this story

      @It'sHammerTime Mr. Hamilton said, "I didn't know I had a mole on the back of my neck". All I'm asking, is that given he's fair skinned, with a history of skin cancer in the family, how do all the people around him on a daily basis, NOT NOTICE? No one in his family noticed??? I'm happy the young lady took action, but good lord, check yourself!

      I don't understand what you're implying. Are you saying that they knew and said nothing? Or that they had already known and the canucks-kraken game happened to come in between the day that he found out and the day that it was removed?
