This is what it comes down to????
Yup, whether I watch or not.

Lead by their captain Stan the Steamer Smyl and goal scores like Ivan Hlinka, Darcy Rota and Tomas Gradin this wasn’t an overly talented team, but a team that played with heart. Add in even more characters like Dave “Tiger” Williams and Harold Snepts and backstopped by King Richard Brodeur what wasn’t to love for a young impressionable teen like me.
Then that glorious run to finals in the spring of 1982 cinched the deal. I was a Canucks fan for life! I have been a fan through thick and thin ever since, which explains why I woke up early before my alarm this morning on this what could be the most glorious day in my teams history. God damn it boys, get the job done, we want the cup!
