The Canucks 5 best players are the Sedins, Kesler, Luongo and Edler. If you want to heap all the praise on Mike Gillis if the Canucks win the cup, so be it. I won't. Gillis will get a lot of credit for surrounding the core with good players but that doesn't take away from the fact the top end talent on this team was inherited.

If the Canucks win the cup will Dave Nonis be known for making poor league minimum signings and deadline trades or will he go down as the guy that brought in the best defenseman and goalie in Canuck history that helped lead the Canucks to their 1st ever Stanley cup?

This team is nothing without it's top 5 players. That is lost on a lot of people, I'm not one of them.
