Thank you for the post and your research on it StrangeGlove! My opinion of you has altered, not 180' but
at least 90'! I am a history buff myself. How on earth could a team that far back without very good ice to
skate on and with a relatively small comparative population as opposed to Ottawa; take on a team that
had all the history and advantages that our young sport at that time seem to offer them?
I will offer my opinion. British Columbians were far more physically tougher and had way more obstacles to overcome
being new pioneers to the land and such. They were proud of their achievements and deservedly so.
Strong Men. No wimps allowed. Tough women too. When money came along; the Easterners took control.
That is their nature.
Whatever; Vancouver owned the Cup!

Will they hang a millionaires cup banner in the rafters to go along with those retired jerseys that is missing the only HOF Canuck player?
Just saying...

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I'm guessing from that comment; that "Topper" is an Alberian spy.
Where were you born "Topper" ? Just a wonderin'?

I may be wrong but I'm guessing that "Topper" was born back East and is a
closet "Hab" fan. He just seems to have that attitude.
He likes the Canucks but does not bleed blue and green in his heart. Am I right "Topper" ?

Oh well, at least we all know the truth now. I can smell out Hab and Leaf fans from afar.
It's not your fault. It's just the way you were raised. :(

They will probably have this for sale, at least I hope so.

I will buy this one because it is different.

downtrodden Alberians. Oh well. Shucks.


I'd rather not.....it would make us the franchise to have the longest cup drought.....I prefer Toronto own that.
