Vancouver Canucks 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

In the first round of the 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Vancouver Canucks lost goaltender Thatcher Demko to an injury in the first game. Demko remains out with a knee injury. For many teams, that would have been the perfect excuse to let down. Instead, the Canucks rallied to pick each other up and eliminate the Nashville Predators in six games. Vancouver showed resilience and tenacity in that series, in which they had to pull a couple of games out late. But now the Canucks are stepping up in class in a second round series with the Edmonton Oilers.

Vancouver Canucks History

Born in 1970 with the Buffalo Sabres in the second wave of the NHL Great Expansion, the Vancouver Canucks are still searching for their first Stanley Cup championship. The Canucks have made the Stanley Cup Final three times (1982, 1994, and 2011) but never finished.

Although the Canucks have had some good eras in their history, they have often lacked an identity. Over the years, Vancouver has had numerous logos, colors, and uniform changes. Vancouver fans have a fickle relationship with the team. In good times they will pack Rogers Arena. And they cared enough to riot after losing game seven of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final to the Boston Bruins.

But when times aren’t so good, they are not inclined to fork over big-ticket prices and instead prefer to spend more of their time and less of their money on the many diversions that the Pacific city of Vancouver has to offer.

Past superstars of the Canucks include Henrik and Daniel Sedin, the identical twins from Sweden. Trevor Linden, Pavel Bure, Kirk McLean, Roberto Luongo, Don Lever, Dennis Ververgaert, Harold Snepsts, and Chris Oddleifson are other revered figures in Canucks’ history.

The 2021-22 season gave Canucks fans and gamblers reason to believe in the future. Following an 8-15-2 start, Bruce Boudreau took over as the Canucks head coach. Boudreau nearly got the Canucks into the playoffs with a record of 35-15-10. Boudreau reminded everyone why he is one of the great turnaround artists in the NHL.
