Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright,
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and little children shout;
But there is no joy in Canuckville — mighty Canucks have fizzled out.

Yes the Canucks are finished for the year.  A good run but at the end the team was just a shell of the team that played all year. It was hard to see it end this year with 40 yrs of trying for the cup.  But overall it was a successful season.  The two things that bother me the most are

1. the refereeing of this series.  I think that this was a major factor effecting the canucks.  I believe in letting them play but I think this was a little over the line.  

2. The aftermath in Vancouver with the rioting was just a small percentage of the fans.   Most are appalled at the behaviour.

But wait till next year.  Go Canucks Go
