Are you trying to make me cry? I can't watch any of that stuff yet maybe I never will be able too. I still tear up seeing highlights from the Canucks 94 run. In the end we didn't win so the fact that we had an 'amazing' run means nothing! I don't care if we won the Presidents' Trophy two years in a role I have waited for a Stanley cup for far to long and I am getting impatient. Nothing else will mater, nothing else would mean anything in my hockey loving world. Its to the point I am looking at getting a 'third' favorite team because I really don't know if Vancouver is going to get it done! So to see posts like this, yes, I may be taking things to serious but it really hurts still.
Kind of goes against the whole "believe" sig?
I understand the "waited so long" - I've been here as a fan since from the onset. But I could never imagine lining up potential teams to throw in the towel here...going down with this ship no matter what.
Just found this comment kind of strange.
I really EXPECTED to win the cup, after the Chicago deal and then getting a shot and beating them...we've been taking all the necessary steps to go one further than our last failed attempt. But last year was too soon - I just think the team didn't really have time to reset and fully recharge. The wounds still hadn't healed and I believe this crew has the tools in place to get it done. The drive/determination of a hungry team just wasn't there this time after a grueling run that depleted the tanks.
I don't look back at any of it...forward only. The Lions are a good example of how you can redeem yourself as a team after everyone else has given up on you. Teams do bounce back. Many here (in the fanbase) have given up and I hope the door doesn't hit them on the way out.
