I am still trying to grasp that hockey is starting again, it seems like the finals was just weeks ago. I felt nostalgic so I went back in time. Bure, Linden, McLean, Brown, Courtnall, and you Lafayette hitting the post in game 7. Memories.

As an asside.........which team did you like better ? I am far and away a bigger fan of the 94 team myself.

I loved the early 90's Canucks. If the Rags didn't get that extra day break between games 6 and 7 we aren't having this conversation Mondi.

Much bigger fan of the '94 team. How can anyone not be? Little comparisson......

Goaltending: McLean was Luongo's lesser when it comes right down to it, but he played like Luongo's better when the chips were down and the team needed a bail out (see game 1 of the SCF vs NYR).

Defense: Not nearly as deep in 1994. Not as skilled overall.

Forwards: Less talented in 1994, but the leaders were more tenacious and would NOT have let a bigger team bully them.

Coaching: Quinn was not afraid to sit a guy who wasn't performing. Vigneault only punished a select few. I still think the team may have reset in game 6 if Luongo had been pulled after the second early and weak goal rather than waiting for the 3rd to put us out of it.

In 1994 the team walked away without a Stanley Cup, but they could walk away with their heads held high because they left it all on the ice and were beaten by a stacked team and league politics. In 2011 the team also walked away without a Stanley Cup, but they couldn't do so nobly, granted they were beaten by politics again, but only a few of the guys left it all on the ice.

Question for ya Blob.....

If the officiating had been honest enough to penalize Chara every time he sat on a player behind the B's net, and thereby giving us a plethora of deserved 5-on-3 PP chances, or, if they had sent whichever Boston Bully at the time to the penalty box every time he took a liberty in an attempt to intimidate one of our players, would we still be having this conversation?

Daniel Sedin getting a penalty for taking 5 shots to the head after a whistle pretty much summed up the way the league wanted that series to go.

I'm guessing you ignored the back-to-back SCF played by Detroit and Pittsburgh.

And Detroit's players have almost always benefited from the protection of the refs.

I'm not saying it was fixed, but the playing surface was definitely tilted in Boston's favor. The Canucks were given a chance to win, just not the same chance that the Bruin's were.

I'm unsure because of aging. If i would be in my youth and experience this team last season i would say it's quite even but the 94 team was closer by a margin to win it all.

Different times, different teams, i like both. Nowadays i see things from another perspective, 94 were the good ol' times.

Hey Meds, how's the security guard gig?

Sorry to take bite of your argument.

I took the loss in 94 way harder than this one. We were down 3 games to 1 and really showed some grit. Marchand would have been killed by the 94 team. The nucks in 94 never lost a game by the score of 8-1. Yes Mondi Burrows goal was huge but so was Bure's in game 7, McLeans stop on Reichal was the biggest save in Canucks history.

I said to some friends that the Canucks were going to beat the Bruins in 5. We never showed up in Boston but the 94 team showed up in New York. That was a great team :D

I still think we will be there in 2012 and finally we win that fucking trophy. :evil:

The '94 run will be remembered for a couple of reasons. First, the team wasn't expected to make it the finals like last year's version. Also, that 94 team had a lot more emotion compared to this years talented, calm and controlled team.

Bure and Linden? Momesso? That team had it all. That's why it will be remembered.

The 94 team had guts and balls.

They played to a level that they had no business doing.

They captured the hearts and imagination of the city, not to mention, the rest of Canada.

Last season's team had all the makings of a SC champion, all but guts and balls...but they are still our team and I will wish for them to go for it yet again.

I am excited about tonight. First look at the vets and some of the potentials live!

I'll make sure to drink a few at Best Buy Club for you guys ;).

:lol: Looks like they took a few cans of spray paint and went at it. Either that or a really bad paint brush and house paint.
