Everyone and their mother had the Canucks steamrolling the Kings, with or without Sedin. I remember when Doughty said something like, "It's going to be fun beating them", and everyone was suddenly up in arms, even laughing at the thought.

Hindsight is 20/20, isn't it? Where are those people now? Now Sedin was the difference?

Vancouver is a great team and in all honesty, I hope they win the Cup in the near future so their fan base can feel what we felt. But I think it's ok to give another team credit for simply being better in a series.
I was definitely guilty of that.
Canucks weren't awful, but were simply outplayed.

I remember thinking "how the hell is THIS team an 8th seed?"
