Team Records

You won't find these stats in a typical Canuck statistical report. Sure, I could try to impress you with the same stats as everyone else gives you, but I like to be unique. Cumulative stats are based on records up to the end of the 2009-10 season and for the regular season (unless noted).

Notes
Team records current to the end of the 2009-10 regular season.
These stats use the NHL standard winning percentage, not the adjusted winning percentage seen on other pages of this site.
Overtime losses that earn the Canucks a single point and shootout losses are accumulated as ties.
