I don't think the Canucks are that cut and dried. The AV era's Achilles heel has always been scoring depth, and every team that beat them did it the same way: having the depth to put a strong checking unit against the Sedins, and a legitimate scoring line (IE, not Mike Fisher) against Kesler, while still having superior forwards left over. Those also happen to be the type of teams that actually win Stanley Cups.
Vancouver was incredibly fortunate that Bolland missed the first three games of the Chicago series (each won by the Sedins' offense) in 2011, or else it probably don't get out of the first round.
