Vancouver Canucks Stanley Cup Betting

The Vancouver Canucks were a near miss for the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Bruce Boudreau took over a Canucks team that had lost its season and nearly got them into the playoffs. The Canucks redid their management with general manager Patrik Allvin and Bruce Boudreau. And longtime NHL executive Jim Rutherford has taken over as president of hockey operations. The Canucks have missed the playoffs in the past two seasons. Vancouver has only one playoff appearance in the past seven years. Now the question is if Boudreau can keep the momentum going.

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.
