VCR's performance in the playoffs has been dismal over the last two years. And, I'm willing to bet that it will be dismal again this year - because the fundamental problems remain.

Good teams win consistently in the playoffs. That's not not just about "luck and momentum." There are always teams that sneak in, like the Oilers, Flames, etc. But, the top tier teams make frequent runs and the teams that just don't have the horses, like the Nucks, continually flame out.
The LA Kings made a hail Mary coaching change at the end of the season and got into the playoffs by ONE game. If that doesn't tell you its about luck and momentum then I dont know what will.

You talk like the Canucks are the Sharks. The Sharks have never won a conference final. Yet some Oilers team that couldn't win a divisional, beats them in 2006.
