Back to the Future: 1992 Hockey

The Stanchion
November 01 2014 01:26PM


Last weekend I had a poker tourney with my buddies, and as each person got eliminated, they would go to the "Loser Lounge" and watch hockey as they waited for the winner to be decided. The first game on TV was the Islanders-Stars game, which showcased an impressive lack of defense and goaltending. Anders Lindback made me feel really good about my own goaltending abilities, as he got ventilated repeatedly by the Islanders left and right.

After that game was over, however, we stumbled into the NHL GameCenter Vault, and found the game 7 showdown from 1992 between the Vancouver Canucks and the Winnipeg Jets. We popped that game on, and while I remember watching this game as a child, I had forgotten just how much hockey has changed since the early 90's. So sit back, relax, and come on a time travelling adventure with me as we take a fond look back at the game of hockey back in 1992.

Cheers and Jeers - Halloween Edition!

It's Halloween, the Canucks are... looking good, which is insanely spooky, and now it's time for: "Cheers and Jeers!"

This regular feature was originally started by Canucks Army forefather Cam Davie during the 2011-12 hockey season. Now that I'm the old hand at this here Canucks hockey blog (that happened... quickly), I figure it's my turn to carry on tradition.

This week, on the other side of the jump, I give some props to Linden Vey, Dave Hodge and Cam Davie, while jeering at some weak Twitter arguments.
