A Tribute to the Vancouver Canucks

 

For those who were here and remember, for the last two rounds of the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals I has a countdown gif for the Hawks from 16 to 0. It was fun as we battled our way though the Western Conference Final, and rammed heads and locked horns with the Flyers in the Stanley Cup Finals. It was meant to document the journey to the final goal, which Kaner scored in OT of game 6 and lead to Tazer hoisting the Cup and spirits of the Blackhawks and city of Chicago.

I find it only fitting to do the same to countdown the Journey of the Vancouver Canucks toward reaching the peak of their mountain, a mountain whose peak was within reach but they ended up getting eaten by a Bear just short of the summit.
