Oh the deja vu.
Last year about this time, I was watching the Vancouver Canucks get eliminated in game 6 by the Chicago Blackhawks and once again, last night, we were ousted by them.
I am not going to lie, I thought we were going to make it at least to the Western Conference finals this year. Did I think it was going to be easy? No. But I thought we would eventually make it through until game 3 and 4 of the second round against Chicago. A team that is going to go deep in the playoffs can’t unravel like the Canucks did in those two games and again really last night.
I know there are a lot of “fans” out there who are off the bandwagon after last nights loss but the highs and lows are what it is all about to be a fan of a sports team. You can’t turn on them after a bad game or after being eliminated from the playoffs. We share the pain and then we move on and look ahead to next season.
After all, maybe next year is “our” year!
