Any idea where to get a playoff towel in Victoria?
Shouldn't Save-on have those?

Did you mean that for a previous GDT viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9272 by Lever? :D

Great to see you post again EPC, and I get what you feel. I've purposely tried to emotionally distance myself a little bit this year. Guess the disappointment of last year's final runs deep in most of us.....but I'm confident that this team is far more physically and mentally prepared for the 2012 Cup run.

To a man, the first check box for the regular season was to get to tonight. From here to the Cup is a long road, but it's one they've travelled so recently that the dust is still in their teeth. They can't help but feel it's time to get down to business.

That said, part of me thinks we'll see that same Canucks team that ground out those tough 1-0 wins a couple of weeks back - efficient without flash. But another part of me believes we could see a Canucks team that comes completely alive and dominates like a well-oiled machine.

I'm glad it's finally here, and I still believe in blue!

Here's to a long 3 month play off drive.

3 months. That's a long frickin time. Last year was killer I tell ya. This year is going to be even worse.

There will be good times and there will be bad times.

After its all said and done, I want this team to be known as the most hated team in NHL history and the only way that can happen is to win 16.

Let's fucking do this. Play time is over.

Are we thwarted?

I'll throw this mother in here as well cause it's so damn fine y'all can read it twice...


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!

That's an apt reference Lister.

With the Eastern and Alberta media already aligning themselves against us...it's Henley's Dirty Laundry.

I've been waiting to get pumped but it's just not coming to me yet... not to the degree I'd expect anyways. This whole year in fact has been different for me. For the first time ever (for me anyways) it's Cup or bust . Until we win the Cup, last season will always feel like the one that got away from us. I'm positive I'm not the only one in this boat as I've seen only a small fraction of Canuck car flags compared to what I saw this time last year.
Finally! Welcome back, Eddy.

Agreed. I'm freaking slammed with work this 1st round anyway, so my attachment factor is running very low anyway, as I can't watch games live.

Still, I have high hopes for these guys and am "cautiously optimistic" on what they can do if they get by the Kings.

I don't think the assigned Reffs will thwart us tonight. We've been playing against SFC finals style reffing since Dec. The team knows it, the PK is solid, two good goalies, etc...etc.

Race to 3 goals and then shut the door.

It'll be a good series. Quick worries me some but as of late he hasn't been quite as dominating. Hopefully we light him up and shake that confidence some.

To Blobby and Lister, Keyser, Rumsfeld and others,
Wouldn't have missed you, given my druthers,
One more thing to say, which couldn't be deeper,
C'mon Canucks...

Let's win one for creeper!
