They are incredibly deep (despite what Craig Button says) on defense. They have outstanding goaltending and up front they ice a Hart Trophy Winner, An Art Ross winner and a Selke winner - all not too far removed from those exploits.

I like the Canucks defense and goaltending more this year than last......they are maybe a top 6 forward away from being right at the top again.
Can't believe the doom and gloom - we pretty much have the same team that won the president's trophy, yet we should start to rebuild? We were missing a star player in Daniel that made beating the LA Kings much tougher, and gave them a pretty good run for their money. I expect VCR to win the division, and I hope we can pick up a good piece for Luo.
