Canucks Fan Appreciation 2008by
Update: Read my thoughts on page A6 of today’s Province newspaper.
Update: I’ll also be on the CBC’s Early Edition with Rick Cluff Wednesday morning (April 9th) talking about Trevor Linden and more specifically, the petition to rename a street after him.
Did anyone even notice the score last night? I’m sure Flames fans did but all eyes in Vancouver were on #16, Trevor Linden (with brief kudos to Iginla for his 50th goal of the season).
Captain Canuck is the second in all time scoring, he holds almost every playoff records for the team and despite the four dark years when he wasn’t on our team, he’s still played more games than any other for Vancouver. He’s all heart, all class (on and off the ice), and although he hasn’t yet officially announced his retirement, we were all pretty certain last night was his final game as a Canuck.
The team awards were also announced last night and thanks to JJ I was able to sit in on this momentous occasion – here are some photos:
My iPhone doesn’t take the best “on ice” shots hence all the overheads but I’m glad I was able to experience this in person… and get choked up… and have my eyes well up with tears during that impromptu fan tribute to Trev at the beginning of the 3rd.

that was a pretty big downer to end a season.I thought it was neat though that everyone at the bar broke into applause several times when Linden was on after the game.
We will for sure miss Trevor…he was a great one! It looks like a career in Real Estate Development is possibly ahead?
That’s nice to hear in the Province! Only thing I have of Trevor Linden is his autograph from a dinner before one of the games. Along with Kirk McLean, Pavel Bure etc.
I can’t believe he’s been around for 19 yrs!
I started a petition to name or rename a street in Vancouver after Trevor Linden…

I was so excited to go to Saturdays game…. it wasn’t meaningless like some people i know thought it was – it meant everything to me to watch Linden play his possible last game. I cried at the beginning of the 3rd period too (i thought i was the only one) and then again – at the end of the game… and when they named him 3rd star. Linden will forever been in the hearts of all true Canucks fans!
I’m still wiping the tears from my eyes at the thought of Trevor no longer being out there in a Canucks uniform! So many good memories! In our hearts forever, without a doubt!
