The '82 run is one of my earliest NHL memories and was my earliest start as a Canucks fan. The Linden/Bure/McLean team is the team that solidified my commitment to the Canucks when I started getting into hockey as an adult. The WCE era kept me hooked and well entertained, had everything but a top tier goalie. The current era is the best we've had.

I think after a few years of nostalgia when the wounds aren't fresh I'll have an even higher estimation of the current group. The Sedins made me just as giddy as Bure did most games.

that 2010-2011 season seals it for me, even with the ending. My mom was terminally ill throughout that season and passed just before the playoffs. Hockey was one of the few things i could get lost in.

That team was a pleasure to watch. Every night i had the feeling that the Canucks were going to win. Very top in nearly every category. Great offense, defense, pk, pp. Most goals for, least against. We were spoiled.

I voted for Linden & Co.
Specifically, I was a big fan of Adams at the time. I don't really see a comparable on this current squad. Heh...perhaps Booth for the games lost to injury

I do respect that today's Canucks are, arguably, better. However, nostalgia wins out for me on this issue. The recent disappointments are still too fresh to ignore. We'll see how the next decade pans out and hope there is another era that can surpass these two great eras in Canuck history, and bring a Cup to Vancouver.

West Coast Express. Pure offense. Was a great brand of hockey to watch.

The Sedins score some nice goals but overall I'd prefer to watch end to end action instead of down low cycles.

For me, it was all about the '94 Stanley cup run.. Watching Bure night in and night out was amazing. That goal that he scored on the cross ice pass from Jeff brown was every bit as important as Burrows great goal against Chicago.
I love today's team and the skill of the Sedins, but that 94 team had it all. I still maintain if the league had not given the teams an extra day off before the seventh game, we would have beat them. The rangers were pretty tired and we were young and exuberant. Once again, the league steps in to alter the plan.

I went there.

Living in Vancouver in the early 90's, it was exciting to see the franchise rise up to a new level. Having the electric Bure around was part of that.

Not to discount the current group's achievements, but yeah, I'm a '94 crew guy in my heart.

I'm too young too remember the 90's teams, but you just can't beat that Linden and Bure combination.

94 by a fair margin.

The current core has had far more regular season success, and is the better team on paper, but it has also been the victim of a series of SPECTACULAR collapses.

Throw in all the diving nonsense and the seemingly endless officiating conspiracies and this era has brought as much stress and heartache as it has pleasure.

100% absolutely agree.

I liked and respected just about every player on that roster, and was a fan of Quinn, too.

I can't the say the same about the current roster and coach/management.

I go 3 era's deep, vaguely remember Smyl, probably at the tail end of his career.

The current group would be my choice. In a way they have broken my heart the most, and are frustrating as hell to watch sometimes, but 2011 was a magical year from the start right up... (almost) until the very end.

The twins are a thing of beauty to behold from a game to game basis, and along with the other core guys I just am more emotionally attached to this group for some reason, perhaps because i've watched more games the last few years than i ever has as a fan.

94 team a close second, and really established the Canucks as my favorite team by miles and gained my allegiance. Lot of found memories of that cup run, they were the scrappy underdogs that just wouldn't quit. Ton of heart with Linden, that Maclean save against Calgary, Bure with his magic, along with Adams, Ronning, Courtnall, Odjick.

The WCE era i loved as well, though they didn't have much playoff success. Can't really complain against any of the squads other than they never won a cup.

I think this team with the right changes still has a year or two left in them to make some noise. It will be a sad day when the Sedins leave or retire. Assuming they don't get traded, which i hope doesn't happen and isn't even a consideration.

My 1st and 2nd year's of university, AKA the 2009-2010 season and the 2010-2011 season. Never been so proud to watch such a skilled group of Canucks, went out there and played hard for EACH OTHER every single night. Going to UVic during that time I met and befriended a LOT of Calgary kids over those 2 years and beyond, so it made the countless Flames/Canucks arguments a lot of fun for me, as well as watching the head to head matchups. I still remember that season ending game where Hank won the Art Ross and Daniel scored the hat trick on the through the legs goal, was just an unreal moment and I happened to be sitting in the caf watching the game with a number of Flames fans.
