The following video is a great and fitting tribute to one of the Greatest Vancouver Canucks in history and the only Canuck, other than Trevor Linden,  whose jersey has been retired by the team.

He actually led the Canucks in Goals, Assists, Points and Penalty Minutes in 1979-1980, a feat that no player has accomplished since.

Watch and enjoy a great tribute to Stan Smyl!

    I am a huge Steamer fan from way back and often mentioned the stat about him leading the team in all categories however, i believe that Joe Thorton accomplished the same his last year in Boston. Not totally sure so might take some research to confirm.

    Dave,
    Joe was close, but his last year in Boston with 98 PIM’s , but was tied by Nick Boynton and beat out by Sean O’Donnell (110) , Hal Gill (99), and Doug Doull (132).
