It's true, you have to expect a certain amount of injuries, but it still sucks when it happens to you. Especially when it hits a player that is so difficult to replace, given that the Canucks' main weakness is depth at center, despite the strength of their top-3.

Plus, even though there are injuries on a lot of teams, the concern is that the one you're matched up against is healthy where it counts, which can be a huge disadvantage -- it doesn't matter all that much if teams in other series are carrying injuries until you actually face them.
