Maybe we should just be happy to have made the 2nd round. This Ducks team has the size and skill that the Canucks could have taken to the finals in 02 or 03. (Hey – they have the same GM too). In fact, the Ducks remind me more of the Canucks of 02 or 94 […]

When you think of Vancouver and racing you probably think Richmond and street racing. Or, you might think driving all the way to mission just to run 1/4 mile times or their lousy road course, which is at least better than driving all the way to Seattle for the nearest real road course. What you […]
