Criteria: had to of played one game or more; current day franchise (1970's to date) and no more than 3 names...the more obscure names the better...

Troy Gamble- he was horrible


How you can include Gamble in your list is beyond me. He actually played well, outplaying McLean. His stats were not horrible by any means, while playing on a pretty poor team. His problem was concussions, which seemed to knock his game out of whack after a team mate hit him in the head with a shot in practice.

Brent Sopel. He had a penchant for making cross ice passes in front of our own net.

Hands down the worst was Chris Levesque. He was the UBC Thunderbirds third-stringer in the CIS.

(Yes, I am taking this thread seriously.)


that was one of the coolest stories ever.. the look on his face was priceless when our starter (cant remember who it was) went down and stayed down for a bit, as it looked like he was going to have to finish the game lol

MARK MESSIER!
There is no one that was more overhyped, useless, lazy, overpaid underachiever than this guy. And then years after his retirement he even has the nerve to demand money from us.

Easily the worst Canuck ever.


He was owed money and the company had not paid it to him, he was waiting and no resolution....Would you just let money owed to you go ? Maybe for a beer, but millions ? no.

Ah, good old CDC....

....where the NHL's 2nd all-time scorer, first ballot hall-of-famer and a guy with an award named for him is the "worst Canuck ever"... :rolleyes:

Worst, no. Most detrimental, definitely. I've never seen one player nearly destroy a franchise as much as he did.

Hands down - the worst Canuck ever!! Looks like a still from a horror flick.

And if he doesn't count, don't try to reason with us folks - it was Messier.

Clutch - perhaps you found a more appropriate "Did we really need him?"

Keith Carney, just a horrible trade deadline in 06 when we had injuries and missed the playoffs. Trading our 2nd rounder for Carney made us miss out on drafting Lucic

This city deserves a championship. This is the best era in Canucks history, keep bleeding blue n green always!
Win it for Ripper, Luc and Demo.

We would have missed out on him anyway because that is how this organization rolls.

And to add insult to injury, Darby Hendrickson scored the series winning goal when the Wild beat the Canucks in the 2003 Western Conference Semi-Finals. Arrgh!!

The only thing I will argue in your statement is "the sole reason we went to the cup"??????? I think that might be a tad insulting to the rest of the team that played their hearts out and skated their legs off that run.( boy did i love that run...so exciting)
Before i get flamed anymore about pavel list your age with your comment were you around for his bad attitude towards this team and city since day one of getting drafted or are you watching 15 second clips on you tube , just wondering.


Pavel was, without question, one of the playoff MVPs and a clear Conn Smythe candidate during the 1994 postseason. He scored 16 goals and 31 points in those 24 playoff games; in contrast, only Trevor Linden came even close to matching his point totals, scoring 25 points. Pavel was also the decisive factor in advancing past the first round and preventing the Rangers from defeating the Canucks in five games.

Without Pavel's contributions, this team would not have reached the Finals, nor would they have even advanced past Round One. That regular season, he finished with 30 more points than anybody else on the roster, yet the team finished seventh in the Western Conference. Seven wins separated the Canucks and ninth-placed Mighty Ducks. Without Pavel, they may not have even qualified for the postseason that year.

Pavel had the best season of his career that year, scoring 107 points in 76 games; the previous year, he had set a franchise record for points in a season with 110. To undermine his effectiveness would be to show how misinformed you are. Everything I have provided thus far, whether it be testimony from his colleagues, statistics, or footage, points towards him being one of the most important players in franchise history.

I suppose you must be truly forgetful, else you're talking out of your rear. You haven't provided a single piece of evidence to support your claim that he was such a "cancer" for this team. The 1994 postseason does not happen without his on-ice contributions. He averaged eight points per series, and scored eight in five games during the series against Dallas. This was during a time when, had the Canucks not had Pavel, there would not have been any guarantee another star would have replaced him. Hence, having Pavel was vital if the team wanted to challenge for the Stanley Cup, and he proved to be the most effective skater for the team nearly every night.

Clearly, you know nothing if your only argument is to question my age. I could ask you the same, but it wouldn't matter if you're going to continue to deny facts and blind yourself with baseless beliefs. Some people can be ignorant at any age.

Thank god for his sake. If this organization got ahold of him they would have turned him into Pyatt 2.0

Anyone remember Larry Melnyk?

Towards the end of his time here the fans boo'd every time he touched the puck. I don't recall too many players actually run out of town but he was. The ironic part is that he's from Vancouver.

Edit. One more guy who was run out of town was Robert Nordmark. I seem to recall him getting boo'd after scoring an OT winner.

dana murzyn. possible the slowest nhler in history and would rank high on worst puck handling decisions

I kinda like Murzyn, although he also had a slap shot that 9 times out of 10 resulted in a ground ball...
and I was absolutely dumbfounded how he managed to be a consistent + player
I could never quite stop thinking of him as a Flame, but he was an odd set of opposing forces.

Troy Gamble the concussed goalie.

Mark Messier takes the cake though being a low life who every Canuck fan on this planet should be obligated to hate.

Leader This gut was a parasite to the entire organization, I am ashamed that he ever wore a canucks jersey. May Messier and Keenan both burn in hell!!
