This (2011) is the first time the two teams have met in the finals. The Canucks have been to the finals twice before: in 1982 and in 1994. The Bruins have been to the finals seven times before, most recently in 1990.

No, the Vancouver Canucks have yet to win the coveted Stanley Cup. They have been the Cup Finals three times, in 1982 vs NY Islanders, 1994 vs NY Rangers, and 2011 vs Boston Bruins. Way back in the day in 1915, the Vancouver Millionaires won the Championship!
The Vancouver Canucks playoff history has had its ups and downs. In the 22 times they have made the playoffs, the team has won 12 playoff series. Their first ever playoff appearance was in 1975, after receiving a first round bye for winning their division the Canucks faced the Montreal Canadians. The ninth seeded Canucks were beaten in five by the Canadiens.
I believe it was 49 the highest wins in their history
There were riots in 1994 after the Canucks loss to the Rangers in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Sadly, history repeats itself and there were riots June 15, 2011 after the Canucks loss to Boston in game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The news reports that the rioting is a result of the crowd's frustration over losing, but that really isn't the case. There are always a few people who come with the sole purpose of stirring up trouble.
Sorry but, WHO IS MARKUS NASLUND!?!? Markus Naslund, a NHL hockey player who has made his mark in Vancouver Canucks history, but retired from the New York Rangers. He has moved from Vancouver to New York so has lost and has not yet made a new fan mail address.
It depends mainly on whether there will be a NHL season for '12-'13. But if there is, the answer is, of course they will win. But just how many wins remains to be seen. As for the Stanley Cup, they have a decent chance at the finals if the Sedins keep up their scoring production, Ryan Kessler gets over his injuries, defensive pairings are solid and Schneider remains consistently good. This will probably be the last season that the Canucks will be strong contenders. The Sedins are nearing 35 and we should expect that their offensive output will begin to diminish after that age. Very few players in hockey history have remained as good at 35 as they were at 30. Surreyfan

Gretzky scored his first NHL goal on October 14, 1979 against the Vancouver Canucks. It was his third NHL game. http://www.oilersheritage.com/history/big_memories_gretzky_first_goal.html
