Twas the first day of playoffs, and Eddy he frowned,
In hoping Roberto, under pressure would not drown.
The brain of a Swedish twin they handled with care,
In hopes that on Hanks wing, soon he’d be there.
The fans were uncertain, with doubts in their heads,
And dropping out early, a legitimate dread.
Kes with his game face and Booth being giddy,
While spooner tried to hear, any word from his kitty.
All through the city, not much of a clatter,
Royaldude could sure tell us, what was the matter.
dhabums asks if Raymond will do more than flash,
And actually score to support all that dash.
Will the power play show us, some new fangled tricks,
To counteract goaltending by a netminder Quick.
Will Lappy continue his offensive flair,
Giving Kassian ice time, will the coaching staff dare?
Hamhuis, Salo and Edler, our defensive core,
Who along with Bieksa, will they have one game more.
rats, Per, herb and the Centrals, to the Corner we came,
To watch our Canucks, win 16 playoff games.
Now Burrows! Now Higgins! Now Sammy and Hansen,
Let us not be the team, who pays these Kings ransom.
At the top of the league, during regular seasons we sit,
But a post season we must win, to be considered legit.
As Spidey quaffs ales, to help with the stress,
And as Widow agrees that lever was her best.
Miyagi knows, with Hank, Ohdee and Doc,
We all want just one Cup, don't forget aaron or Spock.
As the clock it strikes noon, of our long playoff run,
Reefer was heard to say, we must win game one!
Cory Schneider is ready to supplement Luo,
While Tater and Coco, stick with Roberto all the way through.
While Gillis sits back, awaiting the game,
The uncertainty lingers, the atmosphere tame.
We don’t know what will happen, Farhan very leery,
As Canuck fans we know, the end generally teary.
Topper, VPete and Lotus, S_C, Rayxor and Saint,
Do we follow superstitions, so their luck we won’t taint?
Will AV play Ballard, is it Bitz or Dale Weise,
Just win game number one, take some stress away please.
Yet the team speaks no word of substance, and are ready for work,
And we’re here to support them, our duty not shirked.
Mathonwy and wiener, Tanev and Rome,
Can rest easily knowing, all game 7’s at home.
We have the experience, we have health and might,
And no one should minimize, the goal in our sights.
The team ready as any, for this tournament again,
To get to the Finals, but this time to win.
The rest of the fans, dbr, the rest of the team,
Can we imagine, that Stanley Cup gleam?
The Cup we can win it, we must fight the good fight,
And support our Canucks, loud and proud…
..to do this is right!
A different goddamn hockey talk messageboard!
