Canucks win race for 9th place

Canucks win race for 9th place!

They started out strong. They were considered stronger contenders for the cup than the 2004 Western Conference Champion Calgary Flames. In the last few weeks they competed strongly with the Oilers. With unparalelled ineptitude they managed out mediocore their Northern Alberta rivals and lock in 9th place.

I have one request of the Canucks. Could you please beat the Avs? I’d much rather see them in 8th place than the Oilers. Why you ask? So the Oilers can play Dallas again!

I leave you with the CBC’s special play off song.

There’s a dream that lives

Deep in every heart

Heros etch their name

Legends leave their mark

And it’s worth the sweat

And it’s worth the pain

Because the chance may never come again

Give it all you’ve got

Take your best shot

The fire burns deep inside

Stand among the giants

For the game belongs

To the swift and the strong

Though the flame burns bright

Lit in a star

This is the spirit of the game

And the legend lives on and on

But the chance may never come again

The chance may never come…again

    Didn’t want this year’s Canucks in the playoffs. It sucks worse to have a poor team limp into the playoffs and watch them get schooled by the best in the west, than to have them lose out, realize they need to change, and hopefuly make the changes needed for next year.

    I think it’s funny that the Canucks got officially eliminated before the Leafs did. Vancouver, that IS an accomplishment.
