Overview

A Thrilling Ride invites fans to relive the greatest moments of the Canucks’ most celebrated season and historic achievements, and takes them on a journey through the entire 2010-2011 season, from the opening-night introduction of the Canucks Ring of Honour to the emotional ceremony to retire former captain Markus Naslund’s jersey, and from the President’s Trophy victory through all four rounds of the play-offs, including the Canucks’ redemptive victory over archrivals the Chicago Blackhawks, to the final and formidable face-off against the Boston Bruins. The book is also a tribute to Canuck Nation—the enthusiastic and devoted fans who celebrated each victorious moment and suffered through each painful setback. A Thrilling Ride is dedicated to these passionate fans who—with faces painted and towels in hand, some in green spandex body suits—cheered relentlessly, long after the final buzzer. Fans who—after hooligans and upstarts attempted to destroy their city—showed up in the morning to restore order to the streets.
