whytelight Posted August 1, 2013 Share Posted August 1, 2013 Can you make up a list of 6 things on and off the ice that made significant and history-making events (good or bad) for the Canucks? Here are mine: 1. Cam Neely trade = it is hard to argue that if we kept Neely, our position for years to come would have made us contenders. 2. Pavel Bure's 2OT goal in 1994 against the flames in round 1 = this goal woke up the Russian Rocket and he went on to score almost at will for the rest of the playoffs 3. Cloutier's weak shot from center ice off the stick of Lidstrom = The Canucks were in this series and had a good chance to beat the wings. This goal deflated Cloutier and deflated the Canucks. They would never recover. 4. Nathan Lafatette hitting the post in G7 of the SCF final = one inch the other way and the game would be tied. 5. Pavel Bure's elbow to Shane Churla in 1994 = I believe that this elbow allowed Bure to have more freedom to score and helped the Canucks take the Stars. 6. Alex Stojanov for Markus Naslund = the Canucks STOLE Naslund from the Penguins. Stojanov did make an impact anywhere...Naslund is a hero. There are many more events in our history. Can you name some more and explain why they were important? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
