I am not saying the Canucks are not a decent team, but they don't have the prospect depth they used to, they've spent most of it getting close to the cup and are on the downslope. I am not saying they are going to have to bottom out like St. Louis did a couple years back but until they've rebuilt their depth they are going to rely on Luongo very heavily.

If not for Florida's horrible trade, Vancouver would be a mess right now.
The Sedin's are playing very well and our D is fantastic. Our prospect depth is better than it has been in a very long time - not on par with San Jose mind you but respectable. We're not strong on offence now but our depth on D is phenomenal and as you said - we've got Luongo. We've been near the top of the league all year - despite all our injuries - we are better than just a "decent" team.

It's the Vancouver's on the way down comment that got me.
