New history section

Postby George » Wed Jul 16, 2008 8:03 am

In case you're getting a bit bored this offseason, just wanted to let everyone know that I've finally gotten around to re-launching the Team History portion of Canucks Corner (after promising Brian an update for a couple of years :)). I think you'll find the new version much more user-friendly and easier to navigate than the previous site. We've also updated all the player stats, refined the team records a little bit, and added photos to some of the early player profiles. I have a few more updates planned for the offseason, so please check back if you're interested.

Also, please don't forget about the Canucks History board (where this post may have re-directed you to). It's been a bit neglected lately, but if you want to reminisce or hunt down some old trivia, please head on over....

Thanks George - the way it was set up before was excellent, so I look forward to playing with this new version.

Great work!

Yeah, nice update George.

I was just looking at the end of last season. Far too depressing for words. :(

Great stuff, George !!

Lot's of new things to look back on......

I like the player info, especially with the players jersey numbers (should make Taylor's job easier) and the team info against the now defunct teams.

With respect tp players numbers, I see that Luc's number is listed only as #4.

Great addition to the site. 8-)

Yea, thanks allot George, it's a great resource and fun to look back on. I actually found it via Google I hate to admit, but Brian should be happy to hear that! I looked up "2007 Vancouver Canucks Roster" and the top link was yours :thumbs:

Speaking about the roster section, i guess that's a real gem on this site.

Love it to read all the names in all these years.... aaahh the memories. There are really some guys i forgot...

Thanks a lot George. :mex:

I found the history data very useful, unfortunately the link currently points to a blank page (actually an empty unix directory). Will the database be restored or is it located elsewhere.

Thanks

The history section is gone. The person who was updating it and maintaining it isn't around any more.

It will be missed - RIP.

I hope the material is all saved somewhere. I'm sure someone would be willing to take it on. One day, this might be something I'd be interested in, but I'm a little too busy with my micro-Canucks (aged 2 and 4) at this point in time. [yeah, that sounds like a lame excuse, but it is true]

George: if you happen to be browsing still, thanks for your efforts.
