For Vancouver Canucks fans of a certain age, “the Messier Years” are seen as the team’s lowest point. But are they still?

The upcoming trade deadline looms large for the Vancouver Canucks and their fans. It will show decisively just how much control the owner has. While a major deal can – and, we suspect, will – happen before March, the third is a make-or-break point. There are a number of players the team and fans would […]
