UPDATE: NHL expected to cancel games up to November 1st. The hope is that the situation will be resolved and the regular season will begin November 2nd. Call me a pessimist, but I just don’t see that happening.

In any event, we continue with our ‘Vancouver Canucks of Old’ feature — Part Three: Vancouver Canucks 1975-76 Yearbook. Click the image to view the players.

Canucks 75-76 Season Record: 33 wins, 32 losses, 15 ties for a total of 81 points. Lost in preliminary round of the post-season 0 – 2 to the NY Islanders.

OK, then. Regular season’s SUPPOSED to begin Oct 11 (nine days from today) Talks are on-going, but only "non-core" issues are being discussed (how’s that for a sense of urgency?). No hockey this year is our prediction.

In any event, as promised, more Classic Canucks stuff from days gone by. Won’t be long before we’re forced to dig out the VHS library of the ’94 Stanley Cup run. Let’s hope the ol’ VCR is still in working order.
