Back to back Prez trophies, not too bad.... :mrgreen:


What a crappy team! :lol:

NY choked, Blues choked, here we are.

So there have been 4 previous teams to win Prez trophys two years in a row - Oilers, Flames, Red Wings & Dallas Stars

Of those, 3 of the 4 won the Stanley Cup on the second year. 8-)
(only the Wings failed)

Good omen. :look:

What a glorious time to be a Canuck fan. I am so proud of this team. Number one in the league.... AGAIN. That's absolutely outstanding. Congratz guys on surviving a rather meaningless regular season.

So CC friends, what were the defining moments of this regular season for you?

What stood out for you?

The break out year of Chris Higgins?

The acquisition of David Booth?

The deadline deals for Paulsson and Zackian?

Duncan Keith's elbow on Dank?

IMO the President's Trophy is summed up quite simply.

It's an accomplishment to be recognized but not celebrated!

Very simple, the team learned how to win games with out a PP goal and only 1 - 0 or 2 - 1.

A tremendous achievement and honour for the Vancouver Canucks but plenty of work lies ahead.

Make us proud boys......make us proud.

You know that there is a Canuck fan somewhere thinking it.

No team has ever won the President's Trophy three years in a row, so next year expect to hear a lot of "Vancouver sucks" type remarks...of course that won't be much different than any other year.

Out of 25 Trophies, only twice has a team that won it failed to make the playoffs the next year. so the Canucks look like a lock to make the games that count next year again.
