The Giants have come a long way in 10 years, winning the Memorial Cup in 2007, placing 3rd in 2006, being the Western Conference champions in 2006 and 2007, and finishing first in the regular season in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010.

      With Canucks tickets becoming more and more elitist and unaffordable for the everyday fan, the Giants are an awesome alternative for your hockey fix!

      GAME ON!

    11. Nic GardinerFriday, September 17th, 2010 — 4:40pm PDT

      gooooooo Giants!

    12. JessicaFriday, September 17th, 2010 — 5:26pm PDT

      Forget the Canucks, go Giants!
      It’s so much more entertaining and affordable to go to a Giants game or a Vancouver Canadians game for baseball than the Canucks.
      I’d love to win these tix!

    13. EdFriday, September 17th, 2010 — 5:32pm PDT

      Much more affordable than the canucks! Go Giants

    24. VeronicaSunday, September 19th, 2010 — 9:18pm PDT

      I took my daughter to a game last year, as her school is where Milan Lucic went to elementary. The school gave them to every student for a family night out.

      His family still lives in the neighbourhood, which is pretty cool.

    25. AndreMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 8:46am PDT

      yay Giants!

    26. MarinaMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 8:56am PDT

    27. EllieMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 9:00am PDT

      Never watch a giant game! I heard lots of good things about Giants! Hope can go this time!

    28. Nicole BansalMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 9:15am PDT

      The only Giants game I’ve ever been to was a BLAST. If you’ve never been I encourage you all to go. Much cheaper than the pricey Canucks tix as well.

    29. LeahMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 9:53am PDT

      I heart Giant games! Great date nights with my guy! Special memories at the Pacific Coliseum watching Joannie Rochette skate her heart out to win bronze!

    30. PhilMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 10:01am PDT

      Been a fan of the Giants for a while now!

    31. RossMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 10:18am PDT

      Go Giants!!!

    34. SanazMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 2:01pm PDT

      Never been to a Giants game, so would be cool if I won tickets:)

    35. Kye GraceMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 2:10pm PDT

      Being a Canucks ticket holder I just don’t make it over to the Coliseum enough…although I do try to do it once a year. Maybe next week will be the night!

      Always a great time, great hockey, very cool crowd and the nostalgia of the 90’s! Memories of making trips from Hope to watch playoff games are something that I often think about… especially in ’94 against Calgary and game 4 and 6 of the Finals!

    36. ErinMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 2:18pm PDT

      I think I actually had more fun in the rowdy Giants than the calmer Canucks crowd.

    37. JewelsMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 2:21pm PDT

      I’m such a hockey fan and have never been to a giants game! hook a girl up!

    38. KayMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 2:31pm PDT

      My hockey kids have so much fun watching these young players play hard – gives them inspiration for their own hockey futures. Would love to make a night of it with the kids…

    39. Beth Thompson, InfaheatMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 3:28pm PDT

      YAY! Giants! Well, we are just going to watch the games at home. 🙂

    40. darian kovacsMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 6:28pm PDT

      Go GIANTS GO!!!!

    41. Michelle WilliamsonMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 10:40pm PDT

      I can’t wait to win! It’s great to have affordable hockey available to those of us who don’t make $100 000 a year!

    42. MichaelMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 10:42pm PDT

      I want to be one of the cheerer ons for our great Giants team.
      They players are so energetic and I’d love to be there to support their efforts.

    43. DeeMonday, September 20th, 2010 — 10:57pm PDT

      I have a friend who would love this!

    44. RandyTuesday, September 21st, 2010 — 2:37am PDT

      The only thing as good as a Giants game is a Burnaby Express game!!!!! Hockey is hockey and its great!

    45. AlissaTuesday, September 21st, 2010 — 9:46am PDT

      Go Giants Go!

    46. KarenTuesday, September 21st, 2010 — 11:21am PDT
