Canucks To Consider Name Change?



For longer than I remember I have favoured a name change for the Vancouver Canucks. Anything would be better than Canucks. The Villains or the Vibrators would work for me but there is another name that might be even better: the Shit. Shit brown uniforms optional.

Maybe the San Jose Sharks, who work in a land of no snow and ice only once every forty years could switch. Maybe you could just start calling the Canucks whatever you want like everyone already does. Does LA have a team, if they get one call them the Orange Ashes after their atmosphere.

That ain't really fair. I've seen the Canucks pulverize the Bruins before, can't remember that fuckin' lightning fast center they had, motherfucker could Skate AND Shoot. On TV I saw him get around Esposito and check Bobby out of the second period.Poor Bobby. Only hockey player that still had teeth. Probably another record.

Personally, I prefer the "chokers".
The canucks have attained irrelevance. They have a goalie but they will not win a cup as long as they employ europeens that run and hide at crunch time.

The Coley Hallbangers?

If Dope City would just revert to its own now rarely used nickname the team name could be upgraded to the Boom Town Bangers just in time to find their place in Slapshot IV. A fictional Stanley Cup victory would be something to show for just about a century of not going all the way.

Gordie!

I could dig that SS-IV narrative.

But only if Babych was cast to coach the losers?
