Vancouver Canucks’ Performance History
Although the Canucks have been dominating their Western Conference over the past decade, they have yet to win the Stanley Cup.
They’ve emerged as the winners of their division seven times in nine seasons. Additionally, they scored the most goals in the NHL while giving up the fewest in their 2010-11 season.
In the NHL, the Vancouver Canucks have won the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl in 1981, 1993, and 2010 seasons. Also, they took home the President’s Trophy in 2010 and 2011. Their individual players have won awards that include the Calder Memorial Trophy, Jack Adams Award, Budweiser NHL Man of the Year Award, and Scotiabank Fan Fav Award among others.
The Vancouver Canucks have continuously missed the playoffs in recent years, and will do so until they rebuild their blueline and goaltending. They need to nurture and develop their new talent if they want to rise up to their previous levels. If they continue to do so, they may just stand a chance of lifting the Stanley Cup. However, right now, they aren’t bettors’ favorites.
