Canucks and Beyond

Vancouver has been getting a lot of “favorites” talk in these Stanley Cup Finals, but as a Canucks fan, I struggle to accept that. Not because the Canucks aren’t a great team—sure they are (not that I’m biased *cough*)—but because it’s the damn Canucks. They don’t win Stanley Cups. They exist to terrorize us. And we exist to be terrorized. They don’t win. They “almost win.”
And yet, here they are.
On Wednesday, June 1st—the Canucks first NHL game in June in around 400 years—Vancouver will be ready to compete. But are they ready for Boston? For Tim Thomas? Nathan Horton and Patrice Bergeron? Or how about for Milan Lucic…? Now, there’s a guy who’s barely one-step removed from being a Canuck himself, given the number of accolades offered to him at GM Place/Rogers Arena over the years, not to mention his many fans in the province.
So, who’s your favourite to take it all? Bruins or Canucks:
