I think we share similar views, but there is something to the argument that these 'depth' players make a significant difference in the playoffs. If the two competing teams' top minute guys 'saw-off' then it's the difference in these 'depth' guys, which will mean winning or losing a series. That being said, the Canuck's current core group is not as good as several NHL teams: Chicago, Detroit, Anehiem, San Jose, LA, Pittsburgh, Boston, St. Louis, Ottawa. Are there more?
