    Not a good look at all especially to do it like they did similar to a jersey retirement or ahem...a Stanley Cup Banner.

    I was thinking isn't it normal for teams to have conference/division banners, then I see they have a ceremony for it...

    Reminds me of when the Colts had that “AFC championship participant” banner or whatever that was.

    They raised three. President's Trophy banner (deserved) Central Division champs (deserved) and Western Conference Regular Season champs (lol?)

    When the Canucks won it, they didn't have a ceremony for it. Just a banner, so yes surprising move.

    What’s interesting is that Ottawa used to have a divisional banner and they took it down.

    They kept the President trophy banner and the Eastern Conference winner from the Cup run.

    The Sharks unveiled a "Western Conference Regular Season Champions" banner as part of the Presidents' Trophy banner ceremony after 08-09 season. From what I recall, similar situation after the 09-10 season with a Division banner ceremony. I always HATED those banners. The "Regular Season" was in such small font that it seemed like an asterisk on a mock WCF banner. Thankfully they've been taken down.

    In San Jose they had two of those for several years (2009, 2010). They were taken down after 2016 when we actually won the Western Conference.

    Still better than Montreal expected ceremony to honor 92-93 Cup team or if you prefer 25 years without a cup.
