In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

If you don't drink so much beer, you will spend less time in the washroom getting rid of it.

  • Better, local beer. Budweiser is horse piss as far as I'm concerned. There's so much great beer in BC to choose from.
  • No cellphone policy. Movie theatres do this and no one complains.
  • Make Duncan Keith sit with the fans next time the Hawks are in town. Ensure all security guards are on a coffee break when this happens.

Budweiser pays the Canucks a lot to have their beer in the arena

2) More men's washrooms- seriously if you haven't noticed this there are easily twice as many female washrooms as mens. Nothing sucks more than spending half your intermission in a bathroom line and then spending the other half in a concession line.


I've never really paid attention to the number of washrooms. Is it really true that there are more women's washrooms than men's? Or is it just that there are more men at the game, causing the lineup to be longer.

I never really paid attention either, until I noticed how much of my intermission was spent in the line up. So one game when I was there at 6:00, we bought a beer and walked around the lower and upper decks (we were bored). I counted them. The ratio is almost 2:1 female to male washrooms. Considering how there are more men at the games, someone needs to explain to me how this makes sense?? It's stupid.

Get rid of the lame U2 intro and insert when the levee breaks by Zeppelin.........and better cheaper beer.


I dont agree with your position on the U2 intro, but I do agree with Led Zeppelin being a good replacement and the beer of course.

Time to start building some local pride. This is a Canadian team with the worst generic American beer sponsorship, seriously, do you think Chicago or LA serve Molson?? So many great local brews, toss the piss tasting Budweiser and get a deal done with Granville Island Brewing. Their IPA and Pale are even team colors!

This is how i see it...

- People start going to games rather than to the bars to watch them now that the Rog has good brewskie.

- This will be a more lively population vs people who don't know the names of our own players.

- Due to the improvement of the crowd's environment, management goes one step further and brings in some quality Vancouver chow and removes the crappy frozen roadkill that they currently serve.

- Very quickly fans are more positive and eager towards our Canucks, the crowd begins to cheer more and boo less.

- Vancouver starts forgetting the shame of diving, choke artistry and rioting, and begins a new era of a proud Canucks Nation.

- The Canucks start to become far more attractive to local talent, RNH and Shea Weber leave their respective teams to join the Canucks at a massive discount.

- Joe Sakic comes out of retirement to sport the blue and green.

- Our players no longer flop like fish or allow themselves to be bullied my midgets.

- The now signed local boys combined with Sedin wizardry rip the league a new 5 hole.

- Beast mode is no longer a proper term for anyone on our team, because that would imply that they are not always so awesome.

- We tear through the league winning the presidents trophy with an 82-0 season without recording a single goal against.

- The Canucks dominate the playoffs and beat the Rags in 5, losing 1 game on purpose so as to lift the cup at home.

- We continue such play and win cups vs the Bruins twice, the Pens and Maple Leafs.

- We go through Chicago in all of these runs.

- The Canucks are now the only dynasty team of the cap era.

- Due to such success, every single jersey # is retired and we begin to wear roman numerals instead. These jerseys are ranked 1st every year in appearance.

Take note and remember, none of this happens because of fancy FA deals, coaching changes or goonery. Our dynasty is made simply by upgrading our beer selection.

:bigblush: :towel:


That has got to be the best thing I've ever read in my life!

Replace the awful U2 song with Princes of the Universe by Queen. Or I Want It All.

Change the goal song to the refrain from In The Lap of the Gods Revisited (Live at Wembley) (1:05 to the end).

If Canucks fans are feeling really brave and are willing to venture beyond radio rock, try some local talent.

I'd even settle for some Rush that's not Tom Sawyer.

Changing the colours of the seats is a pretty cool idea, split the colours into 3. Upper Bowl can be Green and divide the lower bowl into a blue half and a white half.

Better music, DJ Dave is tanking! Plays the worst music at worst times!

More noise from the fans, we shouldn't need something on the jumbotron to tell us when to cheer or Fin to bang his drum and give a signal to chant.

The Wave (during commercial breaks) to liven up the place, and the wave would only occur once or twice in a game.

Certain special games, like they do in baseball. For example a Kevin Bieksa Bobblehead Night (first 5,000 fans get a free Kevin Bieksa Bobblehead).

Show more of our history at the arena, every month have 1-2 games which show historic moments in Canucks history. Put up a wall of history in the arena, possibilities could be when the Canucks beat Calgary in 94 or our first time at the SCF.

Things like this could really make for a surreal experience at Rogers Arena!

It's fun to watch the ice girls when the men aren't playing hockey though, fills that dead time nicely.

For us out of town-ers I have a proposal that would liven up the games and increase revenues.

Canucks.org builds a hotel or renovates one near Rogers/GM place/whatever the new name will become.

The said Canucks hotel is for out of town fans that need a place to stay but ,of course,every other day the rooms are sold to anybody.

The hotel is done in Canucks memorabilia and art,gear,whatever/everything Canucks.

The rooms are sold far in advance with tickets and it is a package deal,but as the tickets are sold in advance the rates are fair.

Thus, a new section is born in the arena(assuming the Nucks provide a small 'out of town' section for the hotel goers) and a new industry/revenue stream is formed to make more gazillions for the gazillionaires.

Of course,as an out -of -towner I have proposed this idea before but I submit it yet again in the faint hope that anybody that is somebody within Canucks.org actually reads these boards.

The idea is something that is needed and will be an attraction,as well.Of course,if fair rates are charged this new tourist attraction will be a hit all year long,anyways.

I like your first idea. How about we have all of the seats blue except between half way up and half way down, the colours go from white, to green, then back to white. So it matches our jerseys perfectly.

Seats with jet packs so that you can fly over the ice and follow the play from above as the puck moves around the ice. Every seat should have one and that way we can all be in the best place to watch the play.
