Huh?  It's not about making the playoffs.  It's about commemorating an anniversary in the correct year.

 

The Canucks first season was 1970-71.  50 years later would be 2020-21.  And you can't argue that it's their 50th season because we lost a season due to a lock out.  So either way, it's a year early.  Heck, they celebrated 40 years only 9 years ago.  It just doesn't add up.  And Buffalo is doing the same thing.  I wonder whose idea it was?  The Canucks, the Sabres or the NHL?

This is the 50th season. When you are born you are zero years old until your 1st birthday. So when you turn 49 you are starting your 50th year in this world and turn 50 completing the year. When you talk about birthdays the starting point is zero instead of one. 0-49 is 50 numbers.

I know what you are getting at, but it would be weird to celebrate your first anniversary on your wedding day.

Ha! I was just about to write the same thing

So why didn't that standard apply in 2010-11 when they celebrated 40 years?

 

And besides, there was no season in 2004-05, so aren't we still at 49 either way?

10/11 they got it wrong imo. Despite a lost season we are going into the 50 year of the franchise. The franchise didn't cease to exist for the lost season.

If I can, I would like to do the math!

 

If 1970-71 was the 1st year for Vancouver, 1969-70 = 0 years.

 

Every time each year ends in a 0, it would be 10 seasons later. For example,

 

- 1979-80 is the 10th Season

- 1989-90 is the 20th Season 

- 1999-2000 is the 30th Season 

- 2009-10 is the 40th Season 

- 2019-20 is the 50th Season!

 

Now when it comes to an NHL season lock-out such as the 2004-05 season, we may want to minus off 1 season.

 

That brings us down to 49 for this season.
 

Now think about the 2012-13 season which has become ‘a half’ or ‘shortened’ season. 49 minus a half takes us down to the final total that being our ‘48th and a half season’ this year!

 

Anyhow, I do begin to understand what you were trying to say goalie13. But it seems that they rather want to add in  the 2004-05 lock-out and I will respect the season number that the league thinks it is for us this year!!!
