I don't know why this exists on google but it's awesome
The Canucks slogan for this playoff run is "This Is What We Live For". I think that definitely applies to their fans as well. The vibe in Vancouver today has been incredible. I get a tickle in my throat and it threatens to rain on my face when I dare to think about certain players winning it all.This may just be a once in a lifetime event. Let's hope it ends with the big shiny precious. Let's also hope Vancouver doesn't blow up in the process. It's prediction time:

Henrik Sedin, hero. A dozen points in 5 games, setting a team record. Not just leading the league in points, but indeed having more assists than anyone else has points. Henrik Sedin, is 'hero' really enough?

Ain't much left to say about the Vancouver Canucks at this point. We have picked them to lose three rounds in a row and have suffered in the Playoff Preductions Project as a result. Still we would rather be dead last in the pool than correctly predict the Canucks will move on to the next round in the playoffs. We stand by our convictions.
Bruins over Canucks. Believe that.

Tonight the Canucks will play game one of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Boston Bruins. It will mark only the teams third appearance in the finals in their forty year existence, and their first as the favourite to win. Boston is a big physical team with the best goaltender, and the biggest 1A Dman on the planet, so it should be a tough fought series.
The series has been previewed ad nauseum during the break between the end of the conference finals, and today. So rather than preview what is to come, I enlisted the help of Canucks icon “The Stanchion” to recap the most memorable moments from the run that brought the Canucks to the finals. And what better way to succinctly recap a memorable run (the events of which, we will eventually exaggerate in comic fashion) than with a nerd friendly top-10 list. Fasten your High Fidelity helmet, and come re-live the best moments from the Canucks 2011 run through the Western Conference!
