The Vancouver Canucks pulled an historical series of trade that ended up marking 20 years of Vancouver sports.

In 1999, the Canucks' GM Brian Burke, wrote history and a recent video highlighted what truly happened. Burke traded like he was playing on a PlayStation and ultimately landed the 2nd and 3rd overall pick, along with a guarantee that neither one of the Sedins would be going first overall.
