Missed tonight's game but watched the first 2. I think 3 wins is a good way to start the season. Definitely a little surprised.

Time will tell if the Canucks have what it takes, only 79 games to go.

They always seem to do well until New Years and then fall on their collective butts.

I would be happy if they just performed well for a full season and made it past the first round of the playoffs.

Awesome start to the season!! O/T or not, a win is a win. Have listened to the haters all my life and am still a fan. Seems like win or lose this is a team that people love to hate. It's a new year and I am hoping for a great season.

they had about 3 good years to win the cup and choked each time, , good chance they are last in the west this year, the good teams have not started playing well yet this year give it a few more games

I would have like to have seen total rebuild similar to whats happening in Toronto. Unfortunately past GM's gave out NTC/NMC like it was candy, so Canucks stuck with high cap hit players. Who are no longer quick.

Best thing that could happen is retirement for aging players with those clauses.

I've been watching the Canucks ever since they were in the WHL. Last number of years I've watching more WHL & BCHL and lot less NHL.

They were down 0-3 to the kings but managed to bring it back & tie the game with 30 seconds left. We'll see if they can keep the streak going in overtime.

Vancouver in Montreal tonight, if Price is between the pipes... highly doubtful the Canucks will win. Ouch 5 straight losses by Vancouver vs 7 straight wins by Montreal.

That combination of Price & Montoya is looking very good so far.
