Vancouver Canucks being the only hockey team based in Canada who has never won the Stanley Cup has come close in the past few years making the conference finals three straight years and being one game away from winning the cup in one of those years. Playing at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, with the swedish duo of Henrik and Daniel Sedin and other talents like Ryan Kesler, Kevin Bieksa and emerging goaltender Cory Schneider, they are always a favorite to win the cup.
First founded in 1911, as the Vancouver Millionaires for the PCHA (Pacific Coast Hockey Association), but later disbanded in 1926. The Vancouver Canucks were a minor league team until 1967 when they were brought into the NHL. With their first picks they took, Gary Doak, Orland Kurtenbach, and Pat Quinn. In their first four seasons they failed to make the playoffs and struggled not winning a single playoff series until 1982 when they made a playoff run making the finals. Entering the Finals against the New York Islanders, the Canucks were the first team from Western Canada to play for the Stanley Cup in 56 years, but sadly they lost and the New York Islanders won the Cup.
Over the next 5 years the team started to drift and shoot down the standings every season, until Pat Quinn, former Canucks defenseman was named GM, in where he traded most of the veterans for young talented players.Then in 1994 they made another playoff push making the Stanley Cup finals but losing to the New York Rangers in game 7. It took six years for the team to fully recover from the heart breaking loss, not having a winning record for that amount of time as well. But in 95’ the Canucks acquired Markus Naslund in the most lopsided trade in recent NHL history.
In 2001 Brian Burke took over as GM for the team headed by the “West Coast Express” (Bertuzzi, Morrison, Naslund) who were the top scoring line for half a decade. But the Canucks didn’t make the Stanley Cup playoffs until 2011, when they lost in game 7 to the Bruins.
