Thanks Rats.

Y'know alotta folk would call a guy nutso for Cup-fantasizing in a GDT after a loss to the worst team in the west

... towards the end of one of the worst months in team history.

But then alotta folk can't grasp the concept: YA GOTTA BELIEVE!

I't's time for these stats-quoting coulda-woulda deflated-because-of-how-the-team-actually-sucks morons to

... WAKE THE FUCK UP!!

Lucky the Canucks didn't have legions of canucks fan online back in those days lol.


With the 21st pick of the 1992 NHL draft, the Vancouver Canucks forgo the scouts and listen to their fans.....

He should have looked at all of the players the Canucks have passed on and shit-canned every scout in the organization.

I'd also like to say that the loss of Luc Bourdon (RIP) makes our drafting track record look worse than it is. The guy was projected to be a top 2 anchor on the blueline.


One Luc Bourdon doesn't make up for every drafting fuck up that was made by our team but I like your positivity. You and ratski should hang out!

:drink:



It's too bad we don't just let Bob MacKenzie draft in the 1st round. Or 80% of online fans.

The Canucks were soooooooooo close in '82.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

No point really, it's just something to talk about. Think of it as a break from banging our heads at the wall when we think about Burrows and Booth.

I should have said recent drafting track record (like last 10 years or so). But I admit, that still doesn't make up for missing on guys like Giroux, Keith, Perron.....
