Remember when the Vancouver Canucks were actually good?
Yeah, it’s been a long time.
As someone who is under 30, my memories of this hockey club didn’t really begin until the 1999-00 season. Yeah, I was still crapping my diapers during the ‘94 run, but I also missed most of the Mark Messier era. Call it a wash.
The Canucks missed the playoffs in ‘99-00, but they qualified for the postseason in 10 of the next 12 seasons. Only the San Jose Sharks and Detroit Red Wings made the playoffs with more regularity during that time.
