August 19 2014 -- Pariah of the leagueThis team is always pumped up in Canada to b more of contender then they are. Fans have arrogance (or is this just ppl from Vancouver in general?), thinking the "bold" prediction of canucks being a contender is legit and the fact they suck is just hard luck. Eastern CanadaCanada for some reason loves this crime riddled boring city that's biggest selling feature is it's got mountains and woodlands nearby, loves BIG government and one of the hardest cities financially to live in. U think with terrible transportation, no nightlife and limited entertainment, the Canucks wouldn't need the full court press every year just to get decent fan support. Steve Moore, riots after last 2 cup finals, throwing jersey's for a couple loses, introduction of both rope-a-dope and diving into modern game to go along with probably the most disfunctional front office in pro sports, this city and this team are made for eachother. Look forward to this "hockey market" to show its true colors during lean years that are coming.
July 30 2014 -- Refreshing
Came across this site today.
So refreshing to see a site that tells it like it is. The Canucks are the joke of the NHL. Always have been always will be. They will soon be celebrating their 50th anniversary. The commemerative yearbook should be titled 50 Years of Futility as there is absolutely no chance that they will have won a Cup by then. They'll be cupless at their 75th and 100th anniversary too. They are a total embarrassment and an eye sore on the face of the most beautiful city in the world. If there is a God they would cease to exist.
June 20 2014 -- S#!% flows down
Now they have a rookie coach, rookie GM, rookie president, meddling owner (who knows nothing more then casual fan about hockey), fan base that will throw jerseys on the ice after a couple loses to copy-cat Edm fans (pretending like they're recent history has been much harder to endure then 15-20 other teams in the league). Something like 50 NHL starts for ALL goalies in system, bunch of aging vets that look on the steep decline of their careers, Kesler on his way out and the weight of the world on Horvat and whoever they draft this year to turn this thing around ASAP with terrible depth on the team and in the system. No real game changers for free agents and not a tun of cap space if their was. This is all following up back-to-back quick playoff exists by finishing 6th worst in a 30 team league. Even if they catch some breaks there is no reason to think this team will be anywhere near the playoffs in an extremely competitive western conference.
April 24 2014 -- More Pizazz
I added some pizazz to the suck-o-meter to better track the suck-factor (and yes those are sig figs). It should also help pass the time for all the Canucks fans who currently have nothing to watch on tv.
April 23 2014 -- Classic Canucks!It is playoff time and they are nowhere to be found. At least they are consistent.
April 14 2014 -- Team that hates integrity
From creation of the rope-a-dope technique that blew up in many teams faces this year (canucks included) to the success of diving brought on by the canucks use of it during the '11 cup run, the worst is faking a serious injury to gain a major penalty in a game that is meaningless and already over. Last time I saw a player be carted off like that he had 3 major procedures in a 2 week span, not kept in the back room for procation and taken to hospital an hour later to double check the "all good" diagnosis.
April 10 2014 -- Trevor linden?I recall the canucks not winning the cup when he was on the team. And please tell me more about his winning team management experience.
April 09 2014 -- there's always next year
To the so called canuck nation...there's always next year...lol..I've been hearing that line since 72'.
April 09 2014 -- Get a new battery for the SUCK-O-METER!!!
The beauty of these useless band of jackoffs is a never ending source of pleasure!
KEEP THAT LOOSING TRADITION ALIVE DOUCHEBALLS!!
April 08 2014 -- WHOOOOOOO
anyone else feeling really happy right now?!?
Bring on the shame!
Even if all the teams took a turn winning, the Canucks would have won by now.
New Jersey Devils have been in the NHL for 30 years. They now have 3 Stanley Cups.
As in nothing, nada, zip, zelch, zero.
That's 1 more than the amount of rounds they made it during the playoff choke of 2012
Cheer for a real team
Pick any of the other 29 teams. New Jersey is probably where it's at. Just sayin'.
