The Vancouver Canucks season is winding to a close.
They haven’t been mathematically eliminated yet thanks to the San Jose Sharks beating the Vegas Golden Knights 5-4 in a shootout in a game where San Jose tied it up with 0.9 seconds left in the third. But it looks like we won’t see a playoff game at Rogers Arena for the seventh straight year. The focus now is on the offseason with the hope Patrik Allvin and the new management group can take this team a step closer to becoming a Stanley Cup contender.
All your anger, all your hurt
Doesn’t matter in the end
Those days go by
And we all start again
All the pain from Canucks fans didn’t matter at the end of this season as the playoffs won’t be happening. As the days go by and the offseason goes on, it will be a fresh start in October with a team that will look different from now.
Enough about the bad stuff. Let’s go over the good stuff. I covered the Unsung Hero part of the Canucks team awards here. Now it is time to move on to the Pavel Bure Most Exciting Player Award. Last season, Nils Höglander won the award. Who it will be this year?
Of course, if you haven’t voted for the team awards, you can cast a vote here. You have until 11:59 Pacific Time on April 26.
