I think it's simple, swap the top 4 D on each team and you have a series where the Canucks are up 3-1. I don't think you'd have our forward/goalie mental colapse going on. I like Salo, Edler and Errhof. But none of them are an elite no 1. They are really good pairs for elites. Beiksa is terrible, must go.
Just for the PK.....we have outscored them even strength 11-5....Van has 1emptynet not incl,..Chi has two empty netters not incl....plus two evenstrength they scored just as the pp ended,less the one "disallowed goals"
In reality then Chi has outscored us on special teams-2-1--
9(7)ppg and 1 sh vs 5ppg
