Only 8 of those guys actually played at least 3 full seasons with the Canucks and then won the Cup afterwards:

Lemay
Lidster
Larionov
Mogilny
May
Cooke
Sopel
Mitchell

I have more of an emotional attachment to some guys than others ... I didn't particularly care that Cooke was on the Penguins in '09, but this year I found myself rooting for the Kings after they eliminated us for Willie's sake.
