How to enjoy hockey again – the athletic


Wait, are you telling me the Canucks are… fun to watch?

Is this the reality? Is it just a fantasy?

Yes, we’re only two games away from the Bruce Boudreau era, but I didn’t recognize this Vancouver team that beat the Boston Bruins 2-1 on Wednesday night.

I guess it’s kind of a multiverse where a three-cup winning Canucks team with all the swagger in the world jumped on the ice and played in place of the old Canucks. In their universe, the referees ruled out Joel Otto’s goal and it sparked three Cups – in 1989, 1994 and 2011.

And yes, the Canucks signed Gretzky in this world.

But in this world, we’re just not used to seeing a Canucks team generating offensive chances like this in 2021.

Honestly, it sounds a bit like this team we heard about in the offseason. You know the one, the team that will likely lose their fair share of games but at least look exciting doing it?

I don’t think we need to give that warning of “OK it’s just two wins, relax everyone” because my God does this town need power again enjoy things, even if it’s fleeting.

After eight years of internal fan base fights and watching some of the worst hockeys you’ve ever experienced in your life, you really deserve to sit back and enjoy it.

Seriously, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Enjoy it now, because VIPs believe me when I say this:

You have earned it.

Now go have a drink in the living room, the whiskey shots are on me, and let’s dive into a recap on a really fun and entertaining game.
