More About Vintage Vancouver Canucks Jerseys
The history of the Vancouver Canucks franchise began with the spin of a wheel. With both the Canucks and the Buffalo Sabres joining the league at the same time it was decided that the fairest way to determine which team would get the first overall pick would be to spin a wheel. Each team chose certain numbers on the wheel, and as fate would have it one of the Sabres’ numbers (11) was chosen. With that pick they would select French Canadian superstar and future Hall of Famer, Gilbert Perreault. With the second pick the Canucks would pick Dale Tallon – not a superstar, and a far cry from the Hall of Fame.
Over the first two decades of their existence the Canucks would remain mired in mediocrity, with the exception of the 1982 playoffs. Decked out in their famous Flying V jerseys, during that post-season the Canucks rode a wave of momentum and of luck en route to the Stanley Cup Finals where they would come face to face with the two time defending Stanley Cup champion New York Islanders. The miracle run would end abruptly, but long-suffering Canucks fans finally had a moment they could cherish.
In 1994 fans got another moment in the sun. Led by superstar Pavel Bure, emotional leader Trevor Linden, and goaltender Kirk McLean, the Canucks went all the way to game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals before finally succumbing to another New York-based team – this time the Rangers 3-2 in a heartbreaking loss. It would mark the last time the Canucks reached the finals.
Today’s Vancouver Canucks are a legitimate threat to accomplish what the 1982 and 1994 teams could not – win the Stanley Cup. With Roberto Luongo between the pipes, defending Art Ross and Hart Trophy winner Henrik Sedin and his brother Daniel leading the offense, and a rock solid defensive core that is as good as any in the league the Canucks should challenge for the Western Conference crown, and are certainly strong enough to take down Detroit, Chicago, San Jose or any other western superpower that raises their head this season.
