2003-2004 season Bertuzzi got suspended, but was clearly slumping before the incident, Canucks get bounced by Calgary in first round
2004-2005 season lockout no hockey
2005-2006 season Bertuzzi returned, but was not the same player, team lost 6 of 8 last games and missed playoffs by 3 points. Crawford got fired and AV hired, and Bertuzzi and Allen were traded for Luongo.
It was an era that I'd rather forget. All the Naslund worship was a bit over-the-top considering how little that team accomplished, but that's for another thread.
I will start a thread later on that, but interesting to hear.
