I've got nothing to hide, no big deal and it might stop some random idiots from bringing in a weapon.
The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place... and I donīt care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently, if you let it. You, me or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life. But ain't about how hard you hit... It's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward... how much you can take, and keep moving forward. Thatīs how winning is done. Now, if you know what you worth, go out and get what you worth. - Rocky Balboa
Vancouver, B.C. – The Vancouver Canucks announced today the 2015.16 season schedule of events and themes for #20in20; the 20th anniversary celebration of Rogers Arena. The first of 20 special game nights begins opening night with a look back at the original opening night, on October 9, 1995, when the Canucks moved downtown, the Grizzlies were born and the world’s biggest acts landed a new destination.
The #20in20 celebration includes a selection of marquee nights with special guest appearances in addition to themed game nights honouring unique moments in Rogers Arena’s rich history. Marquee #20in20 nights include a reunion of the West Coast Express Line on Monday, December 7th versus Buffalo and the return of Markus Naslund, Brendan Morrison and Todd Bertuzzi to Rogers Arena. Grizzlies Night on Monday, November 2nd vs Philadelphia is another special evening when fans can wear their Grizzlies colours alongside Canucks jerseys with pride and celebrate Vancouver’s former NBA team. And already confirmed, ’95 Retro Night welcomes back the Canucks skate logo, black jersey and uniform for one game only on Saturday, February 13th versus Toronto.
The Saturday, October 10th home opener is significant not only for the launch of #20in20; it’s a must attend game because of the annual ‘Jerseys Off Our Backs’ event for fans. ‘Jerseys Off Our Backs’ offers every fan in attendance the chance to be selected and join Canucks player’s on-ice postgame to receive a personally signed, game worn jersey.
You can join in on the #20in20 fun by participating in an interactive, fan-driven bracket challenge. By casting a vote for your favourite experience you’ll help determine the favourite fan moment in Rogers Arena history. Details will be available at Canucks.com/20in20.

WCE were nearly automatic on the PP. Miss watching those guys destroy the other team's PK.
Yeah, I remember back in the day when the WCE had a set up play on the PP that worked very well. Nazzy would make a hard wrist shot at the opposing goalie's pads. Bert would be in front of the net to wait for the puck to rebound from the goalie's pads so that he puts the puck into the net.
