Interesting fact:
Since 2008-2009,
Offensively:
Canucks averaged 3.07 goals/game, fifth in the NHL.
Rangers were 19th, averaging 2.72 goals/game.
Defensively:
Rangers were second in the NHL with 2.48 goals allowed/game.
Canucks were third in the league at 2.52.

I find it interesting that the so called defensive system under Torts was barely better than the Canucks under AV, and this with Hank backstopping the Rangers.
I would guess that the twins affected those numbers.
