1998-99 Results

Prior to the 1998-99 season, the Canucks hired Brian Burke as their new General Manager. Despite the denials, it was clear that Mike Keenan's days were numbered. Pavel Bure refused to report to the team and was traded, along with Bret Hedican, in January. The last of the Canucks from the 1994 Stanley Cup run were gone. At the All-Star break, Burke sloppily fired Mike Keenan and brought in Marc Crawford as the new head coach. Crawford didn't have any more success with the team than Keenan had and the Canucks missed the playoffs for the third consecutive season.
