  1. All those things contribute to increasing the franchise value, at least 4 times as much as what the Aquilinis paid for the Canucks. They spend to the cap, including pushing Benning to give up draft picks for more NHL-ready players just to make the playoffs for, at least, short-term revenue gain. Linden wanted a rebuild and the Aquilinis bluntly dismissed it.
  2. The Aquilinis bought the Canucks and GM Place/Rogers Arena for one sole purpose - real estate development in the nearby surrounding areas plus additional towers to the arena.
  3. You mean the polls on CDC. Here's some reality for you:
  4. Excuse me?? What you needed was more information from me. The PCHL Canucks, owned by Coley Hall, who won the rights to owning the hockey club was given the name suggestion, "Canucks" by his bookie because Johnny Canuck symbolized the brave Canadian Armed Forces during WWII and it would give the Canucks a patriotic image. The lumberjack version was chosen because BC's longstanding lumber industry helped build the City of Vancouver.
  5. WHY do the Canucks need an animal that doesn't represent the club's name to represent the area? Do the Montreal Canadiens and NY Rangers have a regional animal representing their team brand?? No, of course not. The Canucks may have started out as an NHL franchise is 1970, but Vancouver Canucks hockey started in 1945. They are named after Johnny Canuck whose lumberjack profession helped build the City of Vancouver and has longstanding roots in British Columbia. The original Stick in Rink C represents the beautiful Canadian game in Vancouver, BC colours of blue, green and white.
  6. Yes, there are fans who grew up with the Pacific Coast/Western Hockey League Canucks. If you're referring to First Nations, the Canucks don't have anything to do with any particular demographic or two. 110% correct, thank you. The Grizzlies had a Haida-styled grizzly bear as a secondary logo holding a basketball above a basket as a secondary. That logo represented the Grizzlies' name as well as a genuine tribute to BC's Haida people, unlike the corporately-inspired Orca on the Canucks' brand.
  7. The orca has symbolized Vancouver for, how long now?? Since 2000? 1995?? Thanks to the ideological marketing of the local tourist industry and social activist artists of course. The last place I saw an orca in Vancouver:
  8. The Orca has long overstayed its welcome. Plus, the Sabres have hockey owners. The Canucks have real estate development owners who don't have a clue about hockey.
  9. Why don't you ask Buffalo Sabres fans about how they felt about the Banana Slug logo, the Sabres' version of the Canucks' Orca.
  10. Native history spans all over the Americas, not just Vancouver and BC. What the Canucks have in the Orca is a cheap-crap nod to Native history. The Grizzlies' old Haida secondary logo was a true and genuine nod to BC's Haida people, which included a grizzly with a basketball over a basket, a beautiful combination - name of the team, the sport and BC Haida appreciation.
  11. Yes. A hockey cardigan, aka. a hockey sweater. Does that answer your question??
  12. A lump of constipated Orca taking a dump.
  13. Canuckster86 wasn't pushing lame reasons. He already said, "To each their own".
