A pair of Stanley Cup related riots have hurt the reputation of Canucks fans a tad, but supporters inside the arena have a well-earned rep for being a passionate lot that care about their squad. Since 1995, Vancouver’s National Hockey League club has been stationed at the building currently known as Rogers Arena. Fans of the team would tell you that the building would look a lot better with a Stanley Cup banner hanging above the ice.

Vancouver Canucks Stadium

In 1995, the Canucks said goodbye to the Coliseum and took up residence at a new building on Griffiths Way. The venue now known as Rogers Arena has played host to Canucks home games for the past 20 years and has seen stars like Pavel Bure, Markus Naslund and the Sedin Twins grace the ice to battle in Vancouver’s honour. There hasn’t been a Cup victory as of yet at this facility, but memorable moments have certainly been racked up. The raising of Trevor Linden’s retired #16 springs to mind. Also ranking high is the 2010 Game 7 OT winner from Alex Burrows that knocked out Vancouver’s hated rivals the Chicago Blackhawks.

Turnout’s been great for Canucks over the past few seasons. The ’10s has seen Rogers Arena packed somewhere between 98.9% and 107.2% annual capacity in the last half-decade. The full house hasn’t produced more wins, mind you. In 2014-15, the Canucks had just as many wins at Rogers Arena than they did on the road. Canucks fans can deal with that disparity as long as it leads to more home wins in the playoffs.
