Nope, no BC relations...

I grew up watching minor league hockey, closest NHL team I think was the Blues.. So basically I didn't have any "allegiance" to an NHL team and honestly didn't pay much attention to the NHL. Then one day I decided to see what NHL hockey was all about so I watched the Canucks/Rangers playoff series and pretty much fell in love with both the NHL and the Canucks. Needless to say, the level of play was far superior to what I had grown up with and Linden, Ronning, Courtnall.... Well, what can I say!? That team pretty much sealed the deal for me embracing the Canucks.... and I've been a Canucks fan ever since...which, at times, can be a hazardous prospect here in Denver. ; )
