It had nothing to do with a cup, it was finally beating the hawks, your nemesis, after they had walked all over us in the past and to be up three nothing then be forced to a game 7 against your most hated rivals and FINALLY overcome them.

That OT goal vs Bruins is painful to watch now, knowing what happened after that.

I'm not a Canucks fan but I agree with you %100. Kinda hard to say they slayed the dragon when when the Blackhawks roster was pretty much a shadow of the one the year before. Sure, they beat the "team", but they didn't beat the players that did them in.

Shorty made the dragon comment because all the local sports media were referring to them as the dragon before the series started. 1040 morning, mid day, afternoon show hosts were all saying that the Canucks had to "Slay the dragon that is the Chicago Blackhawks" pretty much every day.

Not that 1040 is repetitive or anything...

Im more disappointed than angry

according to capgeek

177 contracts were handed out after July 1st, combining to a total of 1.5billion (excluding Kane)

of the 177, 38 were worth more than 10m, and 21 being over 20m

18 players made a combined 250m in salary in the past 7 days(their tweet says 219m, but Evander Kane just signed 6yrs for 31mil)

projected 1.795billion of lost salary this season for the Players

Don't know how much the league will lose

I saw this in the elevator news ticker in my building, Canucks front office staff will take a 20% pay cut, but with that comes less work. I actually know a few people affected by this, whether they are host, parking or actual front office.

So its not just about real hockey fans, people that depend on the sport(aside from the players) do need the NHL to be operating at 100% in order to make a living.

It has a trickling effect on the local economy as business will take a dive.

A lot of the arena staff count on working NHL games to pay their bills. They are losing the most from this.

i feel really bad for the staff at the arena, having worked there prior to the 04 lockout and into it, pay took a big dive as there were no events meaning no shifts.

As someone here mentioned earlier, what a joke, a bunch of billionaires whining with a bunch of millionaires.

A lot of businesses are affected by the lockout. Liquor stores, bars, jersey/retail stores, cabs, restaurants, etc.

For the last 2 years I've been going down to the states to catch some games, did Phx the first year and SoCal teams last year. Was hoping to get to do the New York teams this season, that's gonna happen anymore...
