Shap

Shap | Slang | A word often employed in the weirdly insular world of Canucks bloggers and tweeters. It’s the Canucks Nation equivalent of throwing shade; an attitude drenched in sarcasm, snark, and a good dose of self-awareness. Rob the Hockey guy says, “You can’t explain it definitively. I’m not even sure if I’m a shapper myself. It’s probably like asking if you’re cool (if you have to ask, you aren’t). So I haven’t asked. For the moment, I consider myself a shap observer.” Us too, guy. Us, too.

Usage | “You see Luongo on Twitter laying down the shap?”
