The Vancouver Canucks played their inaugural season all the way back in 1970. During their 50+ years as a member of the National Hockey League they have yet to bring home a Stanley Cup trophy and it is fair to say that they may be one of the least successful expansion teams of that era.
During their lengthy five decade history they’ve played in three Stanley Cup Finals as they have won the Conference Championship three times. With their last coming during the 2010–2011 season. They’ve also won the President’s Trophy twice which is awarded to the team that finishes the National Hockey League regular season with the best record, those came in 2010-11 and 2011-12. They also have 10 division titles to their name as well.
They didn’t make their first Stanley Cup playoff appearance until the fifth year of their existence. They lost in the first round during the 1974-75 season after winning their first division championship with a record of 38-32-10. They would make the postseason again the following year but would end up losing in the first round once again.
Following two straight playoff appearances they would go on to miss the playoffs for two straight years before making another two straight playoff appearances to close out the 1970s. However, they never made it out of the first round in those playoff appearances during the 1970s and they were still looking for their first playoff series victory in franchise history heading into the 1980s.
The next playoff series victory would finally come during the 1981-82 season. The Canucks finished with 30 wins, 33 losses and 17 ties and in second place in their division. They had a miraculous run through the playoffs as they made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals but weren’t competitive at all as they were swept by the New York Islanders.
The Vancouver Canucks would make a few more playoff appearances throughout the 1980s but would go back to their losing ways as they once again failed to make it out of the first round for the remainder of the decade. The 1990s got off to a great start as they won two straight division championships to open up the decade.
In 1993-94 the Vancouver Canucks made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals. In the first round of the playoffs they defeated the Calgary Flames in seven games. In Round 2 they breezed past the Dallas Stars in five games, and then in the Western Conference Finals they beat the Toronto Maple Leafs in five games. However, they would go on to lose to the New York Rangers in seven games in the Finals.
They went on to make two more playoff appearances during the early 1990s but the back half of the decade was much less successful as they missed the playoffs four out of the last five seasons. They started off the first half of the 2000s with four straight Stanley Cup playoff appearances but it never really went anywhere either.
Following the 2004–05 lockout season, the Canucks will become a regular playoff contender in the years that followed. They won five straight division titles and six in seven years. They won back to back President’s Trophies in 2010-11 and 2011-12. They made it all the way back to the Stanley Cup in 2010–11 but would eventually lose to the Boston Bruins in seven games.
The later half of the 2010s were a bit of a mixed bag as they were on and off in the playoffs and never really went too far, and couldn’t reach the heights they did in 2011. Heading into 2022-23 they’ve missed the playoffs for two straight seasons and last season in 2021-22 they finished with a record of 40-30-12, as they had a massive improvement from the 2020-21 season.
If you are a fan of the Vancouver Canucks, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2022-23 season. Do the Vancouver Canucks have the star power to make it all the way to the playoffs and win the Stanley Cup in 2023?
