Started out as a Bruins fan as a kid in 1970, Bobby Orr could do no wrong. My dad took me to my first Canucks game in 72. The players were larger then life that day and I started cheering for the Canucks since than.

Andre Boudrias and Bobby Schmautz were my first Canucks idols, and Snepsts kicking ass in the 80's. Pat Quinn however took it to a whole new level when he turned the franchise around. Have really been addicted since then. The proudest moment as a fan besides the 3 runs was when the Sedin's donated 1.5 million to the Childrens hospital.

Class acts they were and still are.

Born with it, grew up with it. Nucks or nothing for me.

 

82 really clinched it. I cannot tell you what an amazing atmosphere that was.

 

Sure it's well documented that I dislike our current GM but one man doesn't change my loyalties. Despite what certain posters think of me I am firm in my belief that no city deserves a cup more than us any more.

Home Town team....well the closest Nhl team.

 

82 I was young but still remember the craziness. I had all the Hockey Cards plus had the Canucks stamp stickers in the booklet from grocery store my Mom was able to get me all the Players, after a season of grocery shopping... grew up with the Canucks .

 

Canucks were actually rarely on tv.....Hockey Night in Canada was Leafs Hab. 80 Oilers actually killed my hockey Canuck interest for awhile, I hated Gretzky , Canucks where just a horrible embarrassment. Sports page was amazing and kept my hockey interest going.....Bring Back SportsPage...plz.

 

Got back into the Canucks in 89 when They were showing some life in the Playoffs. I was Canuck crazy when the Russians arrived and  then went full blown Crazy when Bure arrived and the Canucks were actually on tv more. Plus EA hockey on Sega was Awesome it was hard not to be a Hockey fan in general.

 

i was Actually on the first Canuck forum back in 95...wasn’t Hockeyharry back then...I was signed up by my co workers, at work...my user name might of been my work email I forget...just remember reading threads...didn’t post too much... I thought Emailing and typing was stupid...but reading posts was fine in between newly found internet porn.

 

Seahawks same sort of story....hometown TV team.

 

Go Canucks Goo.....be thankful you didn’t live through 80s Canucks...horrible team play,...horrible management...horrible uniforms.

born and raised in Vancouver so there is half the reason , the other half how can you not love a team when dennis kearns get into a scrap , skates over to the bench  ,blood pouring out over his eye , and still gives a 6 yo a big wink  , then tosses you a puck when he get back to the bench.    canucks 4 life
