The Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins both ended some serious droughts by making it to the Stanley Cup Final. Now, one of these two teams will end an even longer drought. Canucks fans are well aware of the fact that the Canucks have not yet won hockey's biggest prize in their 40-year history.

As a result, his value to Vancouver isn't quite revealed in counting numbers.
