Although I have to thank Felix Potvin for inspiring me to be a goalie. He was my dad's favorite player, so he became mine as well. I remember we met him and he signed my dad's rookie card of him. Seemed like a really nice guy, Helped that I had a Potvin jersey on that I bought the day of the game. They won 4-1 (November 28th, 2000) against the Anaheim Mighty Ducks that night if I remember correctly. But after that game was when I became a true fan of the Canucks and really started to follow them. And that was in 2000, I was 5 at the time.
And yes, Dan Cloutier did stay for a while, but he was still in that era. After Auld we got Luongo and that pretty much leads us to where we are today.

Might be old news, and I'm sure everyone has speculated on the situation but just from the ****** AMA earlier today with Mathieu Schneider, David Backes and Kevin Westgarth.
TOTALLY didn't you see my blog when I was with the Canucks. Short lived until Vigneault ran me out of town . My kids have taught me everything I know about ******. -MS
Let's just say...he made it into my top 10 least favorite coaches list (keep in mind, I played for 10 teams -MS
The offer sheet is part of hockey as a business. I like Vancouver and have some great memories there during the Olympics and regular season. That being said, I love playing for the Blues and St Louis has treated me like one of there own, I am proud to call it home. Tarasenko is a great talent and I cant wait to see how his game translates to the NHL, hopefully sooner than later. - DB
Also according to Westgarth, we are the most hated team in the league and Schneider says it's very hard to play vs. the Sedins. No real surprises there.
