Harrison Mooney wrote a pretty interesting article (blog post?) about the Canucks' history for Puck Daddy.

Interesting article....I personally agree with the franchise hero and villain, but I think that if the list continued on....I'd say that both and hero and villain would be Luongo

I agree with everything except AV being "the coach".

When the Alain Vigneault statue comes up outside Rogers Arena (if it ever does) then I will say he was the best or close to it, but right now not a chance.

I would say Quinn or Nielsen.

It was a good read but there are some inaccuracies, such as AV winning the Jack Adams in 2011.

Burrow's goal was bigger, especially because the Hawks beat the previous two years, and that we had them down so early in the series!!!!

You obviously couldnt have been there...Burr's goal beat a team that was in 8th place....Bure's goal beat a team that we needed 3 count em 3 overtime games to win that series...Burr slayed a dragon..Bure destroyed a franchise

I was there. I started watching during the run of '82.
Burrows was bigger.
Chicago (as LA, wasn't an ordinary 8th seed)

Not a bad article, but most of it is stuff we already know. I found it more interesting to read the other teams' articles. I know plenty of basics about other teams, but I got a little more indepth picture.

As far as incredible goals,
Rolling puck caught out of the air, knuckled past Crawford...
Nemesis team ousted and the spirit of Luc lives on.

What a goal.

Great read, too bad they couldn't split the goal between Bure & Burrows!! That would have been sick!!

Both are equally as big in my mind. But Burrows so fresh in the mind. But I think I got way more excited when Bieksa scored in double O.T. versus Sharks to put us in Cup Final. I was on vacation in Mexico and found a place to watch the game. When it was over I ran down the streets wearing my Linden jersey screaming. Then went back to my room and smoked a big ass mexico joint. Epic times.

I don't think I can say that anything he wrote is wrong. I've only basically known AV as our coach, and in my opinion he's done a terrific frigging job.
