Personally I want to see a Canucks vs Detroit matchup. The last time we faced them was well you know, the goal from centre ice. It was during a time when the Canucks were on the rise and since then we have arguably been one of hockeys top teams. I've been waiting for us to meet again in the playoffs and see a nice skill vs skill series.

Eh..........not a good idea to 'pick' opponents/the supposed easiest one.

With the Canucks luck, we'll probably end up facing a challenging team in the 1st round

There is no such thing as an "easy" match up, good teams just make those match ups look easy. The D has good size, but our forward group, for the most part, is soft and small (no homo). The Canucks lack a Backes/Brown/Lucic/Doan type player. When the Sedins are slumping, the Raymond and Ebbetts won't win you a cup.

The team needs to tighten up defensively and put in a 60min effort if it wants any chance agains the teams in contention

I should rephrase that...The Canucks lack another player who's capable of putting up points while playing a physical brand of hockey. Sedins are great, but when the opposing team starts tightening up defensively and playing physical, they tend to disappear.

Kassian is not that type of player, yet...maybe in 3-5 years.

edit - Gillis was probably banking on Booth to be that type of player

^no.... were are too soft. that's the truth

list one player on our roster that makes the opposing team fear them
list one player on our bottom 6 that can play gritty as fuck and be able to chip in every other game offensively and not be a liability (in the playoffs)

we have maybe one or two players that have potential for #2 but they aren't even close

Stanley Cup formula is toughness and size on every line that can share the scoring when one or two lines get shutdown for a game or two or be firing on all cylinders

Didn't ppl use to say defense win championships?

IMO until the day Edler/Bieksa/Ballard/Garrison (less Garrison since he's seems to be getting confident to shoot now) plays like they are paid to do so then our defense is the biggest problem.

Edler needs to play like the #1 Dman/Norris/50 point/$5 million dollar dman!

Bieksa gotta play like the way he did in the 2011 playoffs.

Ballard needs to suck AVs cock for ice time.

Our best dman is Hamhuis and a youngster in TAN MAN.

Defense do win championships but they don't need all 3 pairings to be top notch. The top pairing usually take care of everything and the bottom 4 just chip in when possible offensively and defensively.

It's hard to pair up Hamhuis and Garrison because Edler and Bieksa are just gonan let goals in.

Depends how (extremely) loosely you want to use the term "power forward."

No, personally i think Ducks 07 was one of the greatest cup team in my lifetime. I can remember the entire team on top of my head. Everyone else thinks LA12/CHI10 were the greatest.
