Considering the Sedins and Luongo are our top guys and expected to be our best players every night, i'll agree with them needing to be more consistent in the playoffs.
That said, I'm not really sure how you would consider Kesler and Burrows to be inconsistent. Burrows is about as clutch a playoff performer as it gets and Kesler played the final 2 playoff series on one leg. Perhaps you missed the first 2 series and the Nashville series in particular? He proved against a stingy defense that he can dominate when it matters most.
It's funny how quickly everyone forgets that every player on this team was one win away from being put in to 'legendary' status for the franchise. With this core I have no doubt we can win a cup.
As far as topic goes, it's refreshing to see one of our leaders completely humbled. The Sedins have proven year after year that they can keep getting better. And now they've learned the biggest lesson of all losing in game 7. We will see if the Sedins can yet again elevate their game and cement themselves as the best Canuck players in history *gasp* Yes, I said it.
