Yes folks, it’s that time of year. It’s the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs. And hopes are certainly high for the Vancouver Canucks this year. There’s so much to say about this that I literally cannot find the words to describe how excited I am about the upcoming Vancouver Canucks playoff game. Round 1, Game 1 TONIGHT vs. the Chicago Blackhawks. YES!

So I shall sum it all up in just one phrase…

Go Canucks GO!

We’re getting close to playoff time, with a 10-game stretch at the end here…

The Vancouver Canucks, coming off a long winning streak at home, and  breaking a losing streak on the road last night… are well-positioned for these last few games before the playoffs. And I would argue, also in a good position to do well in the playoffs.

In this last half of the year, we’re finally getting some spark and jump from players that can make it happen, like the ever-darling Burrows, Kesler, and even the Sedins. And Luongo is stepping up his game… and we know how awesome he is in the playoffs.

And that’s the kind of spirit I want to see us keep on the Canucks. The kind of players who are willing to play for less to play on our team. The kind of players who are willing to play on the ice even if they are bleeding. I want to see us bring this grit and passion into the playoffs that has somehow been so elusive on a Canucks team in this city for the past few years.

Currently we’re sitting 2nd in the Northwest Division, and 5th in our conference. I’d like to see overtake Calgary at the end here. That would just rock.

Canucks Playoffs 06/07

So I say Bring It, Canucks! Let’s see what you can do here. I’m looking forward to wearing my Canucks jersey every single day… even if it gets stinky… in my annual tradition of wearing my jersey every day for good luck during the playoffs. Even to work.

Who’s excited for the playoffs?


Go Canucks GO!
