Hey Guys!

Today i took a few minutes to think about how lucky we are to have as great a team and management.

We are lucky enough to have a Vezina nominee and jennings winners' in goal. To have not one but two art ross winners plus a selke winner.

We have a 50 point d-man AND a 16 goal d-man. We also have a great shut down d-man and the AHL's hardest slapshot in our organization.

We have a 25+ goal scorer signed for 2M.

Now compare that to the Leafs, Jackets and Isles. Makes you feel grateful doesn't it?

If there is a lockout there will be so much I will miss like Sedeniry, Ballards Hipchecks, Lou or Schneids making a highlight reel stop, Volpatti destroying someone in a fight.

Also just little things like Garret commenting on safeway products, Blake Price on the postgame show and Burrows scoring with his typical SO move.

We are also lucky to have Gillis instead of Burke or Howson.

So just take a minute to think about how lucky we all are to have a team as great as the Canucks.

Thanks for that,

Those points you made really show how lucky we are as fans. Can't wait for this season!!!!! (If we have one)

I just want a team that can get it done in the playoffs. Regular season stats mean nothing, as long as the team gets into the playoffs healthy and hungry. The team has potential, far more than the Leafs, Jackets and Isles, but I won't say we're lucky until we're deep into another playoff drive.

All true... our tidly squat worries debated and discussed everyday on CDC are pretty tiny compared to those of the Leafs and Jackets.

When MG came here, we had a good team but nowhere near the talent and toughness to get us to the cup but he's done a good job improving us since then. Is he perfect? uh uh, far from it but he has learned some lessons as any rookie GM would have had to do but at least now we have a lot more depth and better additions to the starting roster which will hopefully improve if we get the trade for Lou or dump the salary and get some dollars to sign a player or 2 to help the cause.

We have a good team and hopefully a great one if things work out! GO NUX!
HABS SUCK!!!

How about in the last 25 years? Those two teams haven't made the playoffs since before the lockout. The Islanders have not won a series since 93, and Toronto hasn't since 04.
Now tell me which you would rather.

Excellent post. Very true.

If Bettman (the troll that he is) doesn't get his way and hockey is on this fall, I think we will see the best Canucks line-up yet.

I am excited

I've been a Canuck fan since 2004-05 when the team was going through a huge transition phase, missed the playoffs

Right now yes i'd rather have us. In the coming years the Islanders and Leafs will eventually get better just like Pittsburgh and Chicago did through the draft, we will only get worse as all our star players get older. Our window is closing

I don't expect to have crappy years in the future. It doesn't have to be the case surely. A huge market like Vancouver should never expect to be mid or lower table.

If we do things the right way I am confident that we can replace our stars when the time comes. The standards are also rising in Europe and there is a huge pool of players to be accessed over here.

With the money available at this Club we can also afford to try out more undrafted players, I'm sure there are quite a few gems out there who for one reason or another may have missed their way.

When Daniel and Henrik retire I would give them a job of being European Scouts for us...........Same goes for Sami.

You're more of a fan is all you want is to see them be Champions.

Just like Kesler would hate you for saying what you said right now.

I wouldn't say the regular season means nothing. I enjoy watching the Canucks win their games throughout the season very much.

It does of course suck that they don't finish the job in the playoffs, but the President's Trophy wins are meaningful to me.
I wouldn't have enjoyed the year so much and had such good times watching those games if it wasn't for them being successful in them.
