Also - the lack on Stanley Cups in Vancouver has left nothing for people to look back upon as inspiration for the future.

So although Vancouver is a 3 Million person city - and hardly a small market - it sometimes feels like it.

Wait a second? Am I defending a comment made by MIZRAL!? It must be the weekend
What's confusing is under Pat Quinn they were never small market and now under Brian Burke they are. What's the difference?
