Canucks riddle

According to a poster at CDC, Canucks PPV had a quick little segment up in riddle-form about something that is going to happen on Saturday night's home game against the Oilers. The riddle is as follows:

-Who else suffered rejection for an NHL franchise, but never quit?

-Who else survived the insults of the Flying "V", the Plate of Spaghetti and the Skate going down?

-Who else turned a symbol of surrender into a passionate tradition copied all across sports?

-October 25th, 2008 General Motors Place

- 7

Yes, it ended with a number 7. Any ideas? I was thinking that maybe the Canucks will retire jersey #7 in honor of Gary Lupul, but how could the first question in the riddle apply?
No one has figured it out yet on the forum. Let me or them know what you think.

You have to be right.

I doubt it, actually.
Smith thinks it's about the fans being the "7th player" blah blah.
Every 7th person in the door gets a free Jan Bulis jersey.... blah blah!

Well, that would make sense too, although incrredibly corny.

Nonetheless, the Canucks should honor Lupul :-)

I looked at it, and couldn't figure it out either, until it finally hit me that it probably has to do with the fans being the "7th player" like you suggested, Sean.

this has to be some crap about the fans, the "7th man". and it's a blatant and shameless rip off of the seahawks 12th man if it is, considering they've never promoted the phrase in their history.

so my guess is that it is fan appreciation night.

But was Roger Nielsen part of the Canucks organization with the skate logo?
I went to a game 2 seasons ago and they had a tribute to Nielson before the game. Tiger Williams was there and he held a stick up with a towel on it. Twas cool.
