He was invisible and a -3(?) in Game 4 and 5 last May....
17 points in 18 games. He had a solid playoff run but San Jose collapsed against us. Come on mate, did you only watch the games against us? This was talked about all last year how well he was playing. Besides, plus/minus is a terrible indicator.
I think we would waste LA in 5 low scoring games. San Jose on the other hand is pretty explosive.
We'll probably still beat the Kings, but we would handle the Sharks much more easier. Games against LA will be more of the nail-biter variety, while against SJ, we would probably dominate them in high scoring games.
People need to start chilling out at the beginning of the season. The poor play at the start did not end up hurting the Canucks in the long run. I just hope that with next season's inevitable crummy October that people stop jumping off the bandwagon
