The Kariya+Selanne Avs was another shocker how that did not amount to more.
Considering that the Canucks were a fairly pathetic organization for most of their history, I'd probably put at least the Blues, and possibly the Senators or Sabres, ahead of them. Vancouver has had a grand total of one Hall of Famer in 41 years, not counting those that were in Vancouver before or after their primes, and the only time they were a serious Cup contender in that time was the last three seasons (2010-2012).
