Im sure the whole country had our back. Its just the stupid media and don cherry cheering for the Boston Bruins. A lot of you guys here were cheering for the flames & oilers deep down during their cup run too. Ill cheer for the leafs against any given american team if they make it to the finals, regardless the roster.

I think they did polls and asked people in our parts of Canada if they were cheering for us and the majority were not.

Ya we were cheering for the Flames and Oilers back then but that was different. They were big time underdogs who weren't even supposed to make it into the playoffs.

We, on the other hand, are a good team and have been for years and went into the playoffs as the best team.

All time stats for most career points in a Canucks uniform:

Regular Season - Vancouver Canucks - All Skaters - Career for Team - Career Points - NHL.com - Stats

Henrik needs 4 points to pass Linden for #2 all time, and 27 points to pass Naslund for #1, with 23 games remaining. Seems do-able.

Wow Bure is the only one that had an average of more than 1 pt per game for the Canucks.
Oh how I miss Bure and his breakaways

Oh how i wonder what Bure would have been if he didnt get hurt
The way he plays just screams for injury. Skates low, drives hard. And with all that hooking and obstruction during his playing days, im not surprised he got mauled down a lot.

One of his best assets was his speed. He is two strides to full speed when he skates. Russian Rocket indeed

WOW @ Henrik being +181, Daniel +167, Burrows +113. Also, Beast is already 16th on the list and Monster is 25th

And look at Linden's stats! 318 goals for us, 1140 regular season games played

Nope. It was the NHLPA poll. That means the NHLPA gave the poll to all the players in the league and then the players if they wanted voted. HNIC had nothing to do with it besides reporting the outcome of the votes. Colorado, Vancouver and a couple other teams declined to participate in the voting

This poll is done every year with a small sample of players
and not everyone

i just assumed it was conducted by HNIC due to this wording "Earlier Sunday, Hockey Night in Canada released the results of its players poll. "

made it sound like the poll was conducted by HNIC

Yeah, that guy was money. I agree one of his best asset was his speed but he can also handle the puck or shoot at that pace which is very rare.

Another thing is he can play a tough game and held his own.

Too bad his injury never healed enough to let him play the way he did like for Selanne.

i'm betting it's the stupid sportsnet time i saw because they always include the pre-game as part of it lol. 5pm it is! i guess that's a bit better. i won't be driving while the game starts at least.
