Canucks Want To Be The Team They Can Be…Really???

By Andrew Phillip Chernoff CanucksBanter

Vancouver Canucks TV commercial is about the importance of: “structure,” “habits,” and “standard.

It’s not really about wins and losses“, the TV commercial says.

If my allegiance to the Vancouver Canucks is not based on wins and losses, I guess my support is for the number one underdog in the NHL.

The Canucks have never secured a number one draft pick in their NHL existence.

The Canucks have never won the Stanley Cup—as the Canucks—even though Vancouver is represented as the “Millionaires ” and this edition are pretty much “Millionaires “, just not Stanley Cup caliber.

Kinda backwards, isn’t it?

Vancouver Millionaires won the Stanley Cup in 1915, but not one “millionaire” on the team.

I don’t think it’s all power that corrupts. Millions of dollars just might, too. You know, the thrill is gone, but the cushion of dollars is around to catch you when you fail to reach the pinnacle of athletic achievement as a team in the NHL.

“No worries, Cheers”, as they play with their money.

Decisions, should I stay or should I go? The money’s better over with a different team. Hell with the Canucks, I’m gone.

Like, how much money is enough?

If it’s not about wins and losses, what is an 82-game season about?

So much about the lure of your teammates and the Stanley Cup.

Just saying….
