What Made You A Canucks Fan?
Posted 24 February 2013 - 01:16 PM
As a young kid I was a big Penguins fan seeing Lemieux Jagr and Francis killing the league. Starting to watch Leaf games and Felix Potvin really impressed me. Always liked him in Vancouver even though he played like crap. Lemieux retired, jagr stopped producing big points and didn't have a team to cheer for so Vancouver it was.
Yes another Potvin fan lol

He got me interested in watching hockey, something my ex couldn't do in 5 years. Then the 94 cup run turned me into a Canucks fan.

This very moment.
That was a great moment and brings back so many memories. I kind of really miss the Canucks/Lames rivalry.

I just realized I'm a bandwagoner, at heart , sigh...
Then I realized I was young too like 8 or so, so that's ok.
You want to know the best feeling has been? , it was "slaying the dragon"
Mostly because my family is heavily divided as Canuck OR Blackhawks fans.
I've been getting it big time by the b'Hawk side so far too

Then the 2010 Olympics came along. Being from the Seattle area, naturally I cheered for the red, white and blue. But it was after the gold medal game that I sat back and thought about it....I wanted to follow a hockey team. Who should I follow? San Jose is too far away....LA sucks in general....Hmmm...Vancouver has a team! Immediately, I adopted the Canucks as my team and threw all my friends and coworkers for a loop.
After being crushed from the loss against Chicago and still not fully understanding some of the rules, I took all summer and studied the game to learn all the terms, rules, players' names, etc.
I'm proud to say I'm a Canucks fan down here in Seattle. If we get a team here, my allegiances will never change. I'm a Canucks fan until I die.
GO CANUCKS GO!!!!

During that time I watched the Canucks play against Pittsburgh and the Maple Leafs, but that memory of Jovo's fight against Deadmarsh (Colorado) will always stick to my mind.

I just grew up watching it with my Dad. It was always on TV and I just watched it with him.
Exactly the same
