I am a fair weather Canucks fan, the team has disappointed me so many times over the past 34 years.
Mid season I was disappointed with where the team was at, I was ready to write them off for season. I am stunned and happy to see their recovery though the last third of the season. I had not expected them to be able to win the division, but they did at the very end of the season.
The last couple of weeks they have been a been weaker in their results than I would have liked, but they had something of a crazy finish to the season with a lot of travel.
They finished with 45 wins, their third best season of all time. They finished the season strongly. Both of these things point to a team that could be a contender for the Stanley Cup.
Much will depend on how well they do tonight against St Louis. They need to go on the road up two games to gain the advantage in the series.
