    I wanted to thank the team, the staff and organization around the Canucks for an incredible season. At this point many of you may still feel frustration for the ending, but I hope in time you will be able to look back on this season with pride. You gave your fans a great ride till the very end.

    I wish Mason, Mikael, Dan and all of the other players requiring off season treatment a healthy and speedy recovery. I look forward to watching all of you next season.

    Thank you for entertaining me 107 evenings this year and for making me proud to be a Canucks fan 365 days a year.

    105 days until 2011/12. Canucks for the Cup 2012. I believe!

    I want to thank the entire Canucks organization, and especially the players, for an amazing season, and an amazing run at the cup. This was one of the most enjoyable seasons that I can remember. Our whole family enjoyed watching the games, and even made it to four season games, and two playoff games - the entire experience was amazing.

    To the players, be proud of what you have accomplished. To finish #1 in the NHL, capture the Northwest Division and Western Conference titles, and to finish #2 in the post-season is a great accomplishment!

    We are all very proud of you! Our turn WILL come.

    I hope the Canucks know that the true/real fans still support them and appreciate this cup run they have given us. I feel privileged to have been a part of it. The riots make me sick and disgusted. To see the team's sad faces last night broke my heart and I would do anything to change that. This team has taken us right to the very end and put their all out there. That is all I could have asked for and I truly hope they know this. It's hard to put all my thoughts into words right now because there are just so many swimming through my head. Finally, thanks to all the fans who continue to support the Canucks; especially the Vancouverites who went downtown to help clean up. It is greatly appreciated.

    Forever a Canuck.

    We'll get em' next year boys! Keep your heads up :)

    ps: Happy Birthday to Kevin Bieksa ! Best wishes.

  2. I cannot believe how awful last night felt for someone like me who didn't know hockey until 2 years ago.

    I was told that part of living in Canada was learning hockey -- if you're fortunate enough to have the skills to play it or at the very least understand how it is played to become a fan-- Hockey is our Religion.

    So, with a family like mine that worships hockey - i became a fan... a big fan.. i have now an unbelievable amount of respect for the sport and the people who played it as i think it is the hardest sport (tied with golf).

    I look back at how quickly i fell in love with the Vancouver Canucks -- as many would say, they're warriors. They battled all year long this season and they battled hard. I thought they were very professional and they were very smart players.

    I was heartbroken last night like many of us -- i felt robbed of what the team so rightfully deserves. I was angry at the team because it felt like they didn't give it their all (except for RK) --- in the midst of my grieving last night - i said that i will never watch hockey again and follow the Canucks. It hurt so much that i didn't want to go through that again next time. It ripped me apart because you think of the journey to get here -- we were so close and i absolutely, unquestionably believed they were a better team and they were going to win it. I was trying to keep it together until the RK interview -- the flood gates just opened -- to see him shed a tear and to see the pain in him, it was gut-wrenching for me.

    Then i woke up this morning and played the whole thing over again in my head -- i realized the Vancouver Canucks was as much heartbroken as we all are, maybe even more - how many times have they battled against odds to give themselves and this City a chance? Sure mistakes happened along the way much like in any other team -- but the Canucks got to the Stanley Cup -- we obviously can't see that silver lining as we want the cup more than anything else. They're so many good things this team has given their fans --- and i know we all are disappointed but this isn't the end of it. The Vancouver Canucks lives on... and so should our faith that our time will come.

    For someone who is considered a newbie -- i got my heart broken and strengthened at the same time -- all thanks to hockey and all thanks to the Vancouver Canucks.

    So, am i off the wagon? Never. I'm a Canucks through and through. Hats off to the team specially Ryan Kesler. You guys have brought us a spectacular season and as you have all said so many times in the past -- we forget yesterday and we focus on tomorrow as i have no doubt -- OUR TIME WILL COME.

  3. the better team won, end of story. At the end of the day tim thomas kept his five hole and his mouth shut. As much as i hate his stupid smile, it was a good year. series changer = dan hamphuis injury, we had no shutdown D and luongo five hole was so big i bet a beach ball could've went in there.

    Stay Classy Canuck Fans.

    The boys had a good year. Disappointing ending to a fairytale story.

    GO CANUCKS, GO

    AND RUIN THE BRUINS.

    YOUR FANS ARE WITH YOU.

  4. In an attempt to get all Canuck fans off the couch and down to a local watering hole in Edmonton, I am calling for all Canuck fans located in the city of Edmonton to head to Hudsons Downtown location. 11248 104 Ave.

    As a loyal canuck fan and owner of the Edmonton Canuck Truck, that is where I will be tonight and hoping others will join in the festivities for GAME 6 against the hated Bruins.

    Plus........Hudsons has pretty good wings!

    After a seemingly endless road to the Stanley Cup the Canucks now go into Boston just one win away from the biggest moment in Vancouver history. Yes, bigger than any moment of the Olympics. While it is a great position to be in, it's not a very comfortable position. I found it quite amusing that the ridiculously biased Boston media basically wrote off the Canucks chances with the series 2-2. Now that it's 3-2 Canucks they are not quite so arrogant. The reality is that this series still could go either way.

    You really have to admire the sports fans in Boston. They truly are hardcore. They seem to have to hate their opponents, in any sport. It's pretty bad when Canuck fans in Boston are afraid to wear their Canuck jerseys. The Canucks have had a few major rivalries over the years and while I don't particularly like some of the teams, I have the utmost respect and appreciation for Iginla, Kiprusoff, Hall, Eberle, Toews and Keith. I'm a fan of hockey first and foremost. Being a fan of the Canucks is a very close second.

    I want to see exciting, highly skilled hockey. I don't need to see a lot of goals, but I'd like to see a lot of chances and some great goaltending. If you like that kind of hockey, how can you not like the Canucks? Do people hate playing against Ryan Kesler? Yup. But if you want to be a contending team then you need people on your team that aren't that fun to play against. How about those Sedins? (Give me a break with the sisters comments.) Their skill level is off the charts. When they are healthy they are elite players. I think it is shameful that the refs aren't calling the games as they should be called which would allow them to show the skill that they have. It makes the NHL look extremely bad. Although a lot of things make the NHL look bad.

    I can also tell you without question that there is no Canuck player even close to as dirty as Corey Perry or Chris Pronger. Those two are often seen as heros. Don't get me wrong, they are great players. But they are cheap shot artists. Aaron Rome is about as honest a player as you will get. And now he's suddenly hockey's equivalent to Charles Manson?

    And Alex Burrows? Well, how dare he (allegedly) chomp down on a gloved finger when it is forced into his mouth??!! How is he not banned for life? Seriously though, I'm really not sure how the NHL could've suspended him for that. The only 2 people who could possibly know if he really did bite down are Burrows and Bergeron. Still, the whining continued.

    Roberto Luongo? Wow! There's a BIG story. Saying that he would've made the save on Lapierre because he plays in the paint? And then also saying that 'THERE ARE SOME SAVES THAT THOMAS WOULD MAKE THAT I WOULDN'T.' And the Boston media thinks this is a story? How is saying that 'their goalie would make saves that I wouldn't' arrogant? It is writers like those in Boston that are responsible for all the 'they are a great team, we will just try our best' and 'we'll just take it one shift at a time' and 'our backs are to the wall' quotes that put everyone to sleep. Can we not all agree that BOTH of these goalies have been great? They both play completely different styles, but it is working for both of them. It is also extremely likely that one of them will win the Conn Smythe Trophy. I think that if Roberto comes up huge in Boston and the Canucks win, he should win it. If it goes to 7 then maybe give it to Thomas even if Boston loses that final game. As good as Thomas has been in this series, he has yet to steal a game. I wouldn't say Roberto has necessarily stolen games, but he does have 2 shutouts.

    I'm expecting a great game 6. The Bruins will be fired up with the Cup on the line. They especially don't want the Canucks parading the Cup around their building. The Canucks of course know that they just need to win one more. That should be incentive enough for them to put their best game on the ice. I hope the Canucks can weather an early storm and I would be surprised to see them get any power plays. A game in Boston where the Bruins could be eliminated, which would give the Cup to a Western Canadian team? I'm thinking no power plays.

    I have a good feeling. I think Roberto is going to get the job done. It would be nice (for my heart at least) if we blew the Bruins away. But that's never really been the way the Canucks do things. It's always been a difficult road. That last game we couldn't relax for a second, and I don't expect game 6 to be any different. Either way I will be holding my breath, watching through trembling fingers, with my '94 White Hot towel in hand and Champagne chilling in the fridge, just waiting to be opened. Get 'er done boys!

    I wanted to highlight the word "Can" in Canucks, and the word "Can" in Canada. This is a game between this nation and our neighbor. As we have seen in the Olympics, how we can unite. I hope that we stay united for our Canadian Team.

    We are the "Can Do" People. As it is already said, "This is Our Time.".

    We are going to back up these men who are here at this moment in time. Not to mention Mr. O Canada.

    They have come very far. Two more and we have it.

    Let's believe in them, and this nation.

    Go Canucks Go!

    THERE COMES A TIME IN EVERY MANS LIFE, WHEN HE SHOULD SPIT ON HIS HANDS, RAISE THE BLACK FLAG, AND GO SLIT SOME THROATS

  6. After jumping out to an early 2-0 series lead on home ice, the Vancouver Canucks return to Vancouver tied after a two game Beantown beating.

    ac1d07907afcfcb6e1f5245f7db174be-getty-114958525jh106_vancouver_ca.jpg?x=130&y=130&xc=111&yc=1&wc=439&hc=439&q=70&sig=Mbmtb04hVWFYVUF6DqvvzQ-- Roberto Luongo looks on after Rich Peverly opens the scoring in Game 4

    It just never comes 'easy' for the Vancouver Canucks. Of course, being that it's the Stanley Cup Finals, one wouldn't expect it should. But at the beginning of the series, it seemed like the Bruins might never get a goal on Roberto Luongo. When Alex Burrows scored 11 seconds into overtime in Game 2, you could feel the confidence eminating from the faces of every Canuck caught on camera. My, what a turnabout a change of venue brings to a series.

    After ripping the Canucks a new one in Game 3, the sea of black and yellow in TD Garden was loud to start the affair. They went raucous when Rich Peverly scored his first of two goals at the 11:59 mark of the opening period. The Canucks, who entered the game 1 for 16 on the powerplay, had an opportunity on a Brad Marchand cross-checking penalty to draw even. But Bruins bodies were flying around, getting down in front of pucks, and whatever did get through, Tim Thomas was able to see, and subsequently stop.

    To be frank, the refereeing was the poorest I've witnessed in the post-season. A lot of Bruins "head-snaps" and soccer-esque dives were rewarded with penalties, particularly one embellished by Andrew Ference. Mason Raymond was forechecking behind the net, reached in with his stick, which completely missed Ference's chin, but the head-snap sold the call. Also, Jannik Hansen received a pass at the attacking blue-line, and both skates were onside as he moved in with the puck for a 3-on-2, but the refs blew it down. Lastly, they deflated the Canucks early in the third period, giving Henrik Sedin a "slashing" penalty. In reality, the Bruin fell as a result of tripping on his team-mates' leg at the blue-line. This after they missed the Bruins having 1 extra player illegally on the ice.

    ap-201106082356861807498.jpg?x=130&y=130&xc=1&yc=1&wc=440&hc=440&q=70&sig=KiTSqg4zCqorXfQtrYstKQ-- Dennis Seidenberg tries to clear traffic from in front of Tim Thomas (photo courtesy of AP Photo / The Canadian Press, Jonathan Hayward)

    It's hard to say which Canuck team will surface in Game 5, with some controversy already on who should start in net, Roberto Luongo or Cory Schneider. Alain Vigneault has already shocked the hockey world in that regard during the Chicago series, starting Schneider in Game 6 after back-to-back blowouts. Schneider, who relieved Luongo after Peverly's second goal 3:39 into the third period, had this to say. "It was just a couple unlucky goals. I don't know if he (ticked) off the hockey gods, but it just seems like the past two games he can't buy a break."

    ap-201106082357862217502.jpg?x=130&y=130&xc=1&yc=1&wc=440&hc=440&q=70&sig=tw8vPYLg6ZQTGDIEh4dcfw-- Cory Schneider, Roberto Luongo and Kevin Bieksa watch as the final seconds tick down on Game 4

    It's quite apparent that the absence of their top shutdown defenceman, Dan Hamhuis (who didn't even skate with the team in practice today), has had a rippling effect on the team. His partner, Kevin Bieksa, looks like he misses him the most. Normally, he has the luxury of being more aggressive carrying the puck into Boston territory. Without that chemistry, the Canucks are having a tougher time initiating offence, which is often derived from their pinching defense. Not only that, but Hamhuis' minutes have to be filled somehow, and that has exposed Alex Edler and Christian Ehrhoff's deficiencies in their own end.

    Though Bruins coach Claude Julien has stated he wants his players to play with class, Brad Marchand's late game antics aren't helping in that respect. He already warned Mark Recchi and Milan Lucic about their mockery of the finger-biting gestures. But, as Marchand was being escorted off the ice by the officials with a triple-penalty, he performed the "dusting off of the hands" gesture as he went by the Canucks bench. It's this kind of disrespect that hockey players hate, and incites violent acts down the road. Interestingly, Marchand didn't "win" any fight, or really have any claim to do that. It will be interesting to see if he's a targeted man in Game 5. With quite possibly the most disproportionate nose in hockey (now that Mike Ricci has retired), I'm certain the little guy (5 '9) might have it smacked for his late cheap hits in Game 4.

    ap-201106082340852427422.jpg?x=130&y=130&xc=57&yc=1&wc=328&hc=328&q=70&sig=GBxxyiChkg9WWOiUMHdRbA-- Brad Marchand clothes-lined a Canucks defenceman, then low-bridged Daniel Sedin, and chucks his gloves off, knowing someone is going to want a piece

    With the series now a best of three, the one upside for Canucks fans is that during the regular season, with their President Trophy winning campaign, they earned home-ice advantage throughout the Playoffs. Hopefully the long flight from Boston will give them a chance to readjust mentally, and prepare them for what lies ahead. In a series where home ice has meant so much, it's imperative they corral momentum back. After all, Rogers Arena has been witness to many Canuck victories throughout the year.

    Way to go 'Vancouver Canucks!'  Somewhat stressful watching them play.  Like that style of play, where the Canucks do everything humanly possible, to be all over there opponent. Check the player with the puck, especially in your end. Like to see the Canucks retain control of the puck more often and not draw any penalties.  Love to see the 'Canucks' win every game.  Don't let up 'Vancouver Canucks', play with the same intensity throughtout...

  8. Yeah, it's kind of hard to sit in Germany while Vancouver is going nuts in a positive way, but I cannot change that (even if somebody gave me two thousand Dollars, I wouldn't have the time to come over now, so thank you laugh.gif ). Still, I am anticipating tonight's game one versus the Bruins with joy and also a little bit of "angst". Let's make no mistake about it: If all goes well, we should beat them in less than seven games, but you never know...

    I kind of compare our current situation with the one that I was in during the spring of 2007. My hockey team in Germany, the Nuremberg Ice Tigers made it into the finals, while my soccer team, Nuremberg FC made it into the German Cup Final. The suspense in the city could be grasped and everybody was in that same mood you guys are in: "Will we finally overcome the odds?" Both teams have had their problems My soccer team is the German edition of the Maple Leafs (no title since 1968 in their case), while my hockey team is the German edition of the Vancouver Canucks (no title ever, but some great teams that should have won). In the end, the soccer team took the cup home, while the hockey team lost 0-3 in the finals... It was the only title I have ever witnessed in my life as a sports fan, and now I am ready for number two!

    Let's write history, my dear Canucks! The time has come to finally become a great franchise! The time has come to make the Canucks an esteemed franchise with no longer only tragic, but also joyful great moments. We could talk head to head with Red Wings or Habs fans, we could rise above all franchises that have never actually won anything. The great city of Vancouver deserves this, and also all of its fans.

  9. I am travelling from Kitchener Waterloo and was wondering if anyone has any connections for tickets that are not outrages in pricing.
