We saw how hard they played the Wings last week, so we can only imagine how hard they will play in a game 7 for the Stanley Cup finals.

Instead of acquiring another **** disturber, Gillis should trade for a defenseman. After Rome was suspended for his hit on Horton during the finals last year, their defense took a large hit. It is better to be stacked in the backend opposed to loading up on pests, in my opinion.
I don't get all this hype about Vancouver. Is it just because they made the cup final last year? I thought the team had a better chance last year than they do this year.

As Joe said though they can definitely be right back there if they want to but it all depends on how Luongo plays and I don't have confidence that he can show up in big games. He's too much of a headcase.
