In fairness, LA steamrolled everyone, but we're suppose to be much better, and leading up to those playoffs, I'd be lying to you if I said I was confident.

I feel the same way so far this year - not very confident. We have the pieces and tools for another Cup run, but the system, effort, you name it, is so far off. Things can change, and I sure hope they do, but as it stands right now it's hard to have confidence.
Well last year my lack of confidence stemmed more from getting through the first round with an injury to Daniel.

LA was not a typical 8th seed.

Not that I disagree the Canucks need another scoring winger, i've been harping on that for some time.

I just don't think the season is ruined at game 19 when they still lead the division.
