One thing I noticed.
When the Oilers and Flames won their first President's trophy both teams failed to win the Stanley cup the same year. However both teams, happened to win the Presidents again the following year, and guess what. Both teams won the Stanley cup
34% of teams that win the President's trophy make it to the Stanley cup Finals.
26% of teams that win the President's trophy win the Stanley cup.
0% of teams that win the President's trophy their 1st time has NEVER won the Stanley cup.
100% of them that won the Presidents trophy again within 3 seasons and returned to the finals have won it all.
Calgary Flames. Won it in 88, Won it again in 89 Wins Cup
Edmonton Oilers. Won it in 86, Won it again in 87 Wins Stanley cup.
New York Rangesr. Won it in 92, Won it again in 94 Won Stanley cup in 94
Dallas Stars. Won it in 1998, Won it again in 1999, and won the Stanley cup. .
Detroit REd Wings won it in 1995, and 1996, (they didn't win it in 97 but they won the Stanley cup.)
Just facts guys. Feel free to play around, feel free to say whatever. I think if the Canucks are to win their first Stanley cup, at this point right now, or within the next 2 seasons is our window of oppurtunity, reason saying is the Sedins are still here for those 2 seasons, so I'm going to remain hopeful
