Having never won a Stanley Cup, the Vancouver Canucks are somewhat of an enigma. For a few years, Vancouver were odds-on favorites to win it all and had the most points of any NHL team both-in-back to back years from 2010 until 2012. Unfortunately for the Canucks faithful the team continually disappointed when it mattered most, the playoffs. The Canucks have made it to the Stanley Cup Finals three times, losing to the New York Islanders, New York Rangers and, finally, falling at the final hurdle to the 2011 Boston Bruins.
The Sedin twins have carried the load offensively for the better part of a decade but have always been criticized for their lack of guile, resilience and character at the business end of the season. This criticism would have vanished had they been able to drag Vancouver over the line. As we all know, this never quite materialized.

Hopefully, Vancouver fans can start to expect a turnaround in form, but don't hold your breath.

They should have taken their chance when it was knocking repeatedly at their doorstep.

In a highly competitve Pacific Division, the Canucks are up against it, with six games per year against the highly touted Los Angeles Kings, San Jose Sharks and Anaheim Ducks, as well as the up and coming Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames.
It's no wonder they've been floundering in recent years, especially as the Sedin twins skate further away from their collective prime. Secondary scoring has fallen to a pitifiul low as the Canucks slid down the standings.
How To Win Money Betting on Vancouver Canucks
It's a bit sad to see what looks like the end of an era in Vancouver. The Sedin's are fighting a losing battle against the sands of time and appear to be heading towards the twilight of their careers. We feel compelled to pay them homage, as they've injected the kind of skill and creative nous every hockey fan appreciates.
The time has come for the Canucks to think about moving on from the Sedins, or at least reinforcing the squad's lackluster scoring punch. The NHL takes no prisoners, and for some, serious decisions need to be made for the Canucks be considered contenders once more. For now, though, don't expect Vancouver to be making headlines anytime soon.
