We could win a cup in a 1 game season and I'd still be happy. A cup is a cup.

i say everyteam plays each team once after those games are played they seed everyone in the west from 1 to 8 in points and everyone in the east the same that way only the top teams make it into the playoffs get rid of the divisions and just have east and west for this year.

I'd rather have the season called off to be honest, I've just had it with getting my hopes up and fantasizing.

If the season were to cone back, it just wouldnt feel the same, it would take a while for my passion to get back up there, I dont want to support the people who play and run the game, well the people who currently are in a stand still over money, as if they are not rich enough.

Cant wait till the WJC, that I will not have a hard time feeling passionate and excited about.

Any Stanley Cup is better than no Stanley Cup.

Who cares if it's a shortened season, the playoffs are all that matters anyways.

People who think that winning a cup in a shorter season means the cup is not legit are morons. Every team plays a shortened season and thus has the same advantages/disadvantages/whatever.

Stupid is stupid.

A Cup win is a Cup win. End of story. If lil losers and whiners and haters wanna say it doesn't count, we can always counter them by saying, a win is a win regardless. I'm not desperate for a Cup, I'm just saying, a win is a win regardless of how many games are played and how it's won.

I think this would be bigger deal if we were a brink team, like the Leafs. Everyone knows that we are going to make the playoffs, so it doesn't matter how long the season is.

Watching the NHL under Bettman is like watching WWE anyhow. The whole "goon squad" standard that the NHL has adopted under Bettman's form of entertainment plan is nauseating at best. Bring on 40 games or whatever and a playoff season. It's equal ground for all teams so why would anyone complain?

Seriously? Who cares about that? I bet the '95 NJ Devils didn't care at all about the shortened season when they won.

I just want hockey. The sooner the better.

Who would want to bite a bullet?

But seriously it doesn't matter how we get the Stanley Cup, as long as we win one already..

EDIT: Also, for example, the Miami Heat won a championship with a shortened season, but still silenced the critics for a while.

The Flames have a Cup and the distinction of successfully dealing with Messier and Gretzky while the Canucks pretty much sucked.
How many Flames from that Stanley Cup winning era were inducted into the HHOF? The Canucks?

Lanny Mac Donald
Joe Mullen
Joe Nieuwendyk
Al MacInnis

Cliff Fletcher
Badger Bob Johnson
Bearcat Murray
Doc Seaman-builder
Harley Hotchkiss-builder

Frank Griffiths and Roger Nielson represent the Canucks from that era.
Not one player.

And so? I fail to see how that has anything to do with my post or the one that the rofl dude was in response to or my original post in this thread. :huh:

A shorten season will benefit the real good hockey clubs. Like the Canucks.

A long season can tire a team out, and risk injuries. Of couse this applies to everyone. NOt really. For example, a bad team, healthy or not, is still a bad team, no matter what. however a good team, can be effected by injuries witch will effect the teams performance.

A bad team. loses 1 to 2 of their key players, their still a bad team.

A real good team loses 1 to 2 of their key players. All of a sudden, they are from a real good team to just an average team so they are greatly effected.

I will love to take a shorten season. Our chance of winning the cup goes up.

November 20th 2013, Canucks just lost their 5th straight game. Last time this happened the Canucks, they missed the playoffs.

I don't think anyone would knock Brodeur and the Devils on winning in 1995.

And if people wanted to, even with a full season, they could still find a way to hate...

So my answer to you is, yes, go for the cup, without a doubt!

The Stanley Cup isn't won in the regular season, so the number of regular season games almost has no significance.
The playoffs will still have 16 teams competing for the cup, and you will still need 16 wins to become champs.

every team has an equal chance at it. i have never called New Jersey out for their cup win in 95. bring on 40 games


Many people called out Petr Bondra for his scoring title though.

Surely it could be argued that it is even harder to win it on a shortened season when no one has the excuse of fatigue. It even gives the "lesser" (teams without great depth) teams a better chance.

A win is a win in my book and quite honestly I wouldn't give a flying puck what other teams fans thought. They would be just as happy to win it on a shortened season I bet.

I'm not quite seeing your logic. I doubt if having the "better" players has ever decided who wins the SC. Fatigue, coaching, team spirit, a physical approach and even luck/refereeing, seems more to do with it. In fact the more SCs I watch the more I see the winning teams as "character" teams who find a physical way to win.

Otherwise we would have the same teams winning every year...........and the Canucks would certainly have won it at least once.

Question Fellow Canuckers: Would your rather win a cup on a 40 game season and hear forever about how we really didnt win a legit cup cause of it from EVERYONE, or would you rather just bite the bullet and let this season go and hope for a full 82 game schedule to win it all!?


I don't recall the last time anyone said anything about the NJ Devils' win being illegitimate.
