The Vancouver Canucks Have Just Won 10 In A Row

And people said after the playoffs last year (not mentioning any names of course ) that they'd merely be one of the average to better teams, no better no worse! hahaha! Now they're, what, the second best team in the league or something? Since Christmas of last year, their record is simply in the ridiculously amazing range. When will people realize that they've very quietly become one of the most dangerous squads around, boasting two superstars, and one fast becoming superstar, in Brendan Morrison. Cloutier is already on his way, boasting the best record of any goalie this year so far. As for the rest of the team, all the pieces are fitting just so well - from Jovonaski to Chubarov, from the Sisters to Linden. Ah, life is good here on the West Coast...

it sure is wonderful. there is a chance ill be flying out to vancouver to check out a game in february. it has serious implications though, so who knows whatll happen.

they seriously, since christmas, i believe, have four times as many wins as losses. think about that. astounding.

and who was worried about secondary scoring?

Zoomerang,

They're a nice bunch of guys, too. Let me know when you're coming to Vancouver - we should go to the game! (If that's alright with you that is!)

And here's what Dan Cloutier said after their 10th straight win:

"It's hard to believe, but I think we can go better. We haven't played our best yet."

If the Canucks haven't played their best yet, may the rest of the NHL pray for mercy.

And Zoomerang - how many games do you think they'll win in a row? I'm thinking 12. That would be cool. The record is 16 or 17, set by the Penguins in the early 90s. Before that it was the Oilers. Imagine if the Canucks broke that record? I guess we'll just have to see!

Well the canucks scedhule for the month is:
Dec. 3 -- at NY ISLANDERS
Dec. 4 -- at NEW JERSEY
Dec. 7 -- MINNESOTA
Dec. 9 -- CALGARY
Dec. 11 -- COLORADO
Dec. 14 -- at EDMONTON
Dec. 15 -- CALGARY
Dec. 17 -- at CHICAGO
Dec. 19 -- at NASHVILLE
Dec. 21 -- EDMONTON
Dec. 23 -- at COLORADO
Dec. 26 -- at EDMONTON
Dec. 28 -- ANAHEIM
Dec. 31 -- TORONTO

Looking at that it is forseeable to get to 14 or 15 but i cant see them beating Edmonton and Colorado. but if they did they could run the board on Cal, Chi, Nash. Also they have a pretty easy schedule this month!

I think they have a good shot of beating the Islanders, but the Devils will be tricky. Therefore, 11 in a row isn't out of the question at all, but 12 in a row will be tough. If they beat the Devils, I can see them having a good shot at the record. They have proven they can beat anyone in the leage on any given night, so I can see it happening. As for beating the Oilers, they've beaten them time and time again since last Christmas, and they are even hotter than the Oilers right now, and have a better record, so I can definitley see them beating them, too. Of course, the Oilers game will be a great challenge, as they're on a tear right now, too. It will be a hell of a game!

I don't know...I think they stand a pretty good chance against us.

I think we should follow San Jose's lead and lose our coach.

Thats what i mean Michael, Edmonton is the leagues second hottest team. It would be great. I will surely be sitting in the bar in two weeks watching that game.

Man, the Canucks really came out flat tonight. They pretty much deserved to lose (I think they were out shot almost 2 to 1?). Man, those Islanders always do it to them when they've got a streak going! It happened last year too - stalled on Long Island. Should be a fun game against the Devils though (don't ya' think Wanderer? ). Even though the Canucks just won 10 in a row, they're still only 7 points up on 9th place Colorado. Just goes to show they haven't really accomplished anything - yet.

ya they didnt look very good. Too bad i have Cloutier in my draft. The oilers didnt deserve to win either but they pulled it out in OT they are now unbeaten in 7(6-0-1-0). I love hockey so much!!!

Oh Michael are you in the interference draft?

Bonoman, no I'm not. I don't think I even knew about it! I love hockey pools, though. At my old work, we used to have one every year, regular season, as well as playoffs. I actually won twice! If the Canucks win tonight, they'll be okay. If they lose, I'll be a little worried...
