I Am A Vancouver Canucks Fan - Why You Should Be Too!

By:  Evangeline Stankey

 

 

After 42 years in the National Hockey League, the Vancouver Canucks are still on their quest of bringing Lord Stanley’s Cup to Vancouver.  The club has made it to the Stanley Cup finals in 82, 83, and more recently the 2010-2011 season where the Canucks battled 7 games against the Boston Bruins. Although the Canucks were never able to take home the ultimate prize, they did not go home empty handed. The past two seasons the Canucks have been the winners of the President’s Trophy, and out of the last 8 seasons the Canucks have finished 1st in their division 6 times. 

 

Although the current 2012-2013 NHL season is experiencing a lockout don’t them out as contenders for the cup, should the NHL and NHLPA make a deal.  In the Vancouver Canucks’ statement regarding the Collective Bargaining Agreement they shared that they have been working hard all summer and would be ready to play at a moment’s notice.

 

While there have been changes to this years line-up many of Vancouver’s key players remain the same. A major change being made is the starting goal tender will no longer be Roberto Luongo, but instead 26-year-old Cory Schneider. Proving his strong goal tending in several Stanley Cup Final games, Schneider has rightfully earned his spot as starter.  Daniel and Henrik Sedin, and Ryan Kesler are still the teams strong forwards and with the addition of defensemen Jason Garrison the teams depth is better than ever.

 

Overall the Canucks have a promising season ahead of them. They are a determined team with a hard working coaching staff behind them. They are a great team to support and fun to watch.
