Lol this again. I watched pretty much every game last year. The previous year around 80% with the arrival of Petey. The last two Willie years and the first year of Travis is some of the worst hockey in franchise history. I was probably not much more than half the games, 60 % at best. Then just watch the highlights or if they were playing a fun team to watch. I think if anyone said they watched all 82 in those three seasons, they are super bored out of their skull, a glutton for punishment or a bald faced liar. :mex:

Then you admittedly, because you didn't see the games, know little of many of those on on your shitty list.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Watching those clowns play 50 + games a year was more than enough of a sample size to see how lousy they were

Unsure what’s amusing. I may have missed one or two. Do you guys expect anyone to believe you watch 100 % of the games from tip to tail? :mex:

What's funny is how long they've been hammering you about this

I guess if you consider that hammering. I’d say they lack reading skills. I’ve been pretty consistent about the amount I watch and when I tuned the team out. Then it comes back to ‘he never watches any games’. I have to break it down and spell it out for the old codgers because most of them suffer from Dementia and don’t retain much these days.

60% isn't 50+ games

do the math

51/82 is 62%. That better? And that is a rough estimate- I generally have better things to do with my time then jot down how many games I watched. :lol: :lol: :lol: Curious to see how much others watch or watched during the dark years of 2026-18. Guaranteed they didn’t sit through 100% of that horrible hockey.

So now you say you MAY have watched more than 60%, but as with everything else, you don't have a clue.

keep adjusting the goalposts

and the Preds just claimed a STALWART defender

There’s no adjusting any goalposts. Do YOU count the number of games you watch? Do YOU watch all of them? Do YOU NEVER have better or different commitments from time to time? Or were YOU that big of a fan of Luca Sbisa and Michael Chaput? :mex:
Nope I’m pretty sure the number is somewhere in to 60’s to 70’s percentile even in the horrible years. Last year well above 90%. How about yourself old timer? How many games a year do YOU watch the Canucks play? Within 10-15 % will do. Or better question how much of the game do YOU remember at your age? :mex:

Its a little embarrassing to say but i have sat through almost every game the canucks have played since the butcher trade. Ive probably missed no more than a dozen games in that span...that includes living in australia for a year.

I shit you not

I spent a lot of coin in various pubs or on tickets before 100% coverage came to cable. I actually miss that

The mountain shadow, stones throw pub, NBI, the barnett, the one in the basement of those towers by lougheed mall were my faves
