It was the injuries PLUS all the non-calls/referee bias



I agree injuries and non-calls. It would have also been helpful to have won at least one game in Boston. Most of those games in Boston were blow outs.

I always imagined if in last years Stanley cup final our issue against the Bruins wasn't just injuries but that we just weren't big and strong enough that If we had Bertuzzi in his prime when he was with Vancouver in the WCE days during the time he was probably the best power forward in the game and he was paired with the Sedins would you think we couldve won that one extra game or would we have had the same results and get pushed around I personally would"ve liked our chances with Bertuzzi in his prime and think we could've won that 7th game and if Luongo played a little bit better than he did Marchand wouldn't have thought of punching Daniel and the rest of the Bruins would think twice about going after one of our stars thoughts?


Hard to say if Bertuzzi would have made a difference. That's like saying if New Jersey had a Norris Trophy Scott Niedermayer this last playoff.

If Bertuzzi hit a single Bruin, it's pretty much a guarantee he'd get thrown out of the game. There was no way we could have won game 7 with the way that series went.

What if we also had Pavel Bure in his prime?? :shock:

The Bruins wouldn't want to mess with this would they:




And I hear that this guy could score as well...

I'm just saying if we had Bertuzzi in his prime and put him in game 7 instead of burrows and place him on the third with torres and lapierre and put hansen on the fourth I think the result would be different.

Make sure you know how to use an apostrophe properly before you criticize someone else's writing.


Yeah, but c'mon, he's just helping that guy out, in some sort of way lol. I'm tired of seeing people post a huge paragraph with out any apostrophe's, periods etc etc, it's just plane lazy and is at most of the time, hard to read.

What if the Canucks had Bertuzzi?

What if the Bruins had Orr and Neely?

What if the Canucks had secret hockey playing robots made to look exactly like human beings, except with laser eyes that can melt the ice around opposing players' skates, causing them to trip over and allowing the Canucks to easily skate circles around the other teams?

What if we had Ehrhoff, Ballard, Malhotra, Salo, Samuelsson, and Raymond in their prime against the Bruins? What if Hamhuis wasn't injured? What if Rypien(RIP), O'Brien, Hordichuck, Bertuzzi, and Brookbank were on the ice when Marchand used Daniel as a speedbag? What if the Sharks beat us in the WCF? What if Lapierre and Burrows didn't chirp? What if the Bruins weren't tough? What if Bolland and Marchand ate a bad piece of cheese? What if CDC didn't exist? What if Stojanov became a star? What if Anson Carter didn't become a rapper? What if you weren't born? What if Vigneault was Crawford? What if Glass didn't fan on his shot? What if Oreskovich didn't have a big chin? What if the Sedins weren't twins? What if I wasn't typing this nonsense out? What if Lucic injured himself on the hipcheck? What if Bieksa stopped picking his spots? What if Chara and Lucic were on our team? What if Campbell stopped pretending to be tough? What if there was a lockout in 2011?

Punctuation's are your friend.


Oh the Irony! All you had to do was take out either the apostrophe or the "are".

The Canucks had such a hard time scoring on Thomas. How different could things have been if they had a healthy Bure in his prime?!?

Well then we may or may not have won the Stanley Cup in 2011.

The old saying, if my aunt had balls, she'd be my uncle.

What if we would have won game 7? We'd have the cup!

What if this thread was never started? We would not have known what could have happened.
