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.

bure would light up luongo and the rest of the 1994 team would have beated the 2011 team into submission ala boston.

linden would out work/out heart the sedins - i am being 100 honest here

linden/bure ill take any day over the sedins

mclean was on a magical run that year too.

Watch Bowness somehow mess up Tampa Bay's already amazing 2 powerplay units...he'll probably tell Stamkos to do drop passes from centre ice, take him out from the faceoff dot, and place him infront of the goalie :lol:

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.

True. But it shows that the team actually believed that they can come from behind and actually win the series and as you said twice (1st & 4th round).

....But failed, just two goal posts away. :(

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.

Fair enough.

I always had that memory of Lafayette's post, but the first time I ever went back and watched it I was amazed how close they came on so many occasions throughout the game. I'd forgotten that part.

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.

2011 team would be in the box for diving constantly. most of the game would be 4 on 4. therefor 2011 team would dominate with speed and skill, with the occasional bure rush from the 94 team.

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.

It' not like the 94 team was anywhere near heathy, they 65% at best starting game 1 of the finals. Bure gets kicked out of game 3 for a major. The next game Messier should have received 5 and a game for a check from behind but no call.

Would Hamhuis, Kesler, Samuelsson, and Henrik have all been injured to the same degree?

What about reffing? Under '94 rules Rome would have been lauded for throwing a fantastic hit, rather than banished for the rest of the playoffs.

Regardless, as much as I loved the guys in '94, it's 2011, no question. The '94 team caught fire in a bottle, whereas the '11 team dominated all year...until they were decimated with injuries.

We all saw how much the 2011 team dominated with a healthy roster. When you see guys like Henrik, Samuelsson, Hamhuis, Kesler, Higgins, Edler, Ehrhoff, Bieksa and Salo get injured, you see any shot at the Cup go away, so I'd say the 2011 team would win.

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.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

wait a sec... you mean the 2011 team without Kesler, Sedins injured, no Hamuis, Bieksa hobbled...

The 2011 team would win, I mean: we were first in goals scored, last in goals against, had the best power play, box play and all around team in the league in 2011. The '94 run was magical, but the one 17 years later was better.

no question the 2011. players are bigger faster and more skilled today. As much as I want to say 1994 I just don't think they would win a 7 game series.

If the 2011 team was healthy, they would dominate the 1994 team. When healthy, everyone played great. Just look at the first two games of the series. Even Ballard and Raymond were solid.

I think the '94 team would have beat the 2011 Bruins. There's no way the Bruins would have had their way with the '94 Canucks like they did the 2011 Canucks. Lucic would've had his head beat in by Odjick, Bure woulda skated circles around Chara and McLean woulda stole the Conn Smyth from that neo-con Thomas. So in short, '94 Canucks would beat 2011 Canucks in 6 games.
