I would agree. Henrik has obviously been battling an injury (was given ''maintenance days'' all week instead of practice).
Keep in mind the Sedins had Keith and Seabrook in round 1, and then Suter and Weber draped all over them last round. Thats pretty tough - San Jose has no such dominant defensive pair. I'm looking for them to explode in this round, but that could just be wishful thinking as well.
Anyone need to borrow a crystal ball? I've got one if need be.
By the way, look who's leading the playoffs in scoring......
I'm avoiding the opinions of the main boards, so...
Who's the MVP for the Canucks right now in the postseason? Daniel for his round one performance (probably not), Kesler for his round two, or Hanky here in round three?
Or do you go to a consistent player like Luongo, or even Hamhuis? I'd probably still lean towards Kesler, because he's just been incredible all-around, but the Sedins are shedding the "choker" reputation pretty fast.
Speaking of former chokers, as a fan of the game, I hope Thornton isn't injured. Obviously, I want Vancouver to win, but I'm glad JT and Marleau are having a solid series. Always liked those two as players.
Equally enjoyable to have Heatley sucking balls and being absolutely invisible out there.
