This Conference is so stacked with Stanley Cup contenders.

It’s like Skinner will need to win the Conn Smythe for this team to get to the finals.

Hyman really misses his centerman.

So much perimeter weak sauce. We have perfected making it seem like we are playing Hasek almost every game. But, issue is the Oilers.

So badly need McDavid back for playoffs.

Vancouver plays a very well structured team game. They force play to the perimeter and always cover the high-danger scoring areas. They allow point shots, but those are low percentage. The Oilers scored on one of them, and it wasn't enough. They generated a good number of shots, but they weren't particularly dangerous. Any decent goalie would have won the Canucks that game.

I don't want to play the Canucks in the playoffs. They aren't as talented as the Oilers, but they are smarter. Also, the games are kind of boring. I don't want to watch stifling hockey.

I think they're more talented, and definitely smarter. Vancouver leapfrogged the Oilers in one year, going from a team lacking guidance to an absolute powerhouse.

The Canucks outscored the Oilers 21 - 7 in the season series this year, and won all four games. They are definitely the better team.
