Point being, the "Weak divison! Strong divison!" argument is a silly one. Vancouver was great against the Central and Pacific themselves, anyway. They were and still are a better team than the Hawks, as much as I'd prefer that not be the truth.
Yep. Our goaltending, PP and soft play especially drag us down in the comparison. Canucks have the sisters and a few other softies, so need to compensate by bringing in some physical presence elsewhere in the line-up, and they have done a decent job of doing so. They will be tough to beat with Schneider as the starter.
