The Mark Messier ceremony had to be the best this season.

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

The Mark Messier ceremony had to be the best this season.

Postby JamesOwnzSam11 » Wed Feb 28, 2007 12:16 am

That was just so awesome.

The Oilers vintage jerseys= instant win.

I love how they didn't over do it.... I mean Yzermans was over an hour, Messier's in New York was over an hour, MIKE BLOODY VERNON's was over an hour.

It was just pure win.

Also, does anyone think the Stanley Cup is being whored out a bit? I mean I can understand it for Messier... I mean he's ******* Mark Messier he won it six times, but to bring it to Calgary, Detroit, etc, etc is a little much.

Well, Messier was the 10th captain in Canucks history....and this is a hockey board.....doesn't have to be just Canucks.

Was it short? That's all I care about when it comes to those retirement ceremonies. I love Stevie Yzerman, as most fans do, but his ceremony was WAY too long. (His youngest daughter's facial expression during the ceremony was priceless - the poor kid was bored to death, and it was hard to blame her.) To paraphrase Bill Maher, new rule -- if the retirement ceremony lasts longer than most weddings, it's too long.

I think his Vancouver ceremony will take place right after the other greatest and most beloved player this franchise has produced. I speak of course of Bulis. Once he goes back to Montreal then retires we can have his ceremony. Messier's will come shortly after I am sure. :lol:

i'm just giving him the same amount of respect Messier gave to the city of Vancouver, it's fans, and the organization of Canucks, and it's players.

On a positive note I thought the vintage jerseys looked really sharp. I've never cheered for the Oil but those jerseys really looked good.
