I thought we could use a little fun given how everyone is feeling about the lockout.

Let's just say that hypothectically we could make this happen. If the 1994 cup final Canucks team played against the 2011 cup final Canucks team, who would win and why?

Yes I understand that the rules and style of play were completely different for the two eras, so please don't over analyze this.

There`s so many other factors to consider, but if I had to say it, I would say the 2011 team.

Here`s why:

Half our team wouldn`t have been injured against the 94 team because they weren`t a bunch of goons.

Sure the 94 team had heart and grit, but the 2011 team had way more skill. They ran into a much tougher team with a goaltender who was on fire. I don`t think the 94 team was as tough or as good in goal as the Bruins, and the 2011 team took them to game 7.

The 2011 Canucks would win. Those guys from '94 are old now.

:lol:

Still, I think the 2011 team had more talent and was deeper.

It's hard to to compare from different era's but I have to say 1994.

Even though we were the under dogs back then, I gotta say we were much closer to achieving our goal then we were a year ago because our team was more passionate and played the game with heart (Ex: Linden, Bure others.) And also we didn't get blown out whenever we lost.

However, the 2011 team never got down 3 games to 1, let alone twice.

I'll take the 94 team with the referring from 94 as well against the Buins. Game 6 against the Rangers has to be one of the most physicals games played. If that game were played today there would be non stop penalties from start to finish. Quinn playing 4 lines, Brown dropping bombs from the point. Miracle man Adams, so many different players chipping in.

Unfortunately I was too young to remember the '94 Canucks, but looking at the stats I'd say the 2011 Canucks. The playoffs were similar, but in 2011 we dominated the regular season to a level not seen in a while. The 1994 Canucks had a rather mediocre regular season.

So, the because the playoffs seem rather equal in the final result, I'd go to a tie-breaker: the regular season. The 2011 Canucks were quite strong in the regular season so that's why my vote goes to them.

2011 for two reasons.

1) 94 Canucks wouldn't goon it up.

2) Reffing could never be in favour of a Canucks team, therefore the series would actually have fair officiating.

Bure would make Lu's Boston games look like shutouts. He would single handily retire him in 1 series.

94 reffing vs 2011 would be a big factor though.

So are we looking at a healthy 2011 team or what we saw against Boston? The lineup seemed so different from game 1 compared to game 7.
