From my first game in 1974/75 (2-2 v. Flyers) - 1985ish, I went to about 40 games and the Canucks never lost.


Impossible... The Canucks couldn't have won 40 games between '75 and '85...

In the 1980-81 season, Dave "Tiger" Williams became the only player in NHL history to record over 30 goals and 300 PIMs in one season. (35 g/343 PIMs)

In the 2011-2012 season, Larry Goodenough continues to ask why Tiger is not in the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Also won the team scoring title.. and a spot on the 2nd team all stars .. looking for the same from Zack :)

Same reason as Henderson isn't.. The committee are eastern idiots..
