Canucks in 6, I have no faith in Corey Crawford's goaltending abilities, what a weak goal against Holmstrom yesterday in what should have been a make or break game. Everyone likes to rip on Luongo in the postseason but look at what he's done in first round matchups. Canucks' defense are all back and playing and once the six of them combine to form some sort of Dragonzord creature it will spell the end of any notions of repeats.
They are definitely a playoff team, but I'm going to say it's going to take the Hawks 7 games to win it. In regular season, Canucks have won two and Hawks have won two..so should be a really close series.
Jk, I'd pick Chicago in 6.
Chicago has better Defencive Skill (Seabrook, Keith, Campbell, Hjalmarsson, Jassen Cullimore) and are overall a better team then the Canucks when it comes to skill also with Kane, Toews, Sharp, Browley, Stalberg, Hossa, Frolik Etc. Canucks seem to preform better as a team, not so much just one person as Kane and Toews work.
Canucks are a better team when it comes to teamwork (ie: Henrik to Daniel). They are more of a "Team" kinda team not a "One man" kinda team. If that makes sence... Goalys, well.. Canucks got that down.
Personally I think the Nucks are takin it down.
canucks in 5. i don't know why we are all so scared anyways...we are much grittier than last year and the hawks have lost all the players that were driving us crazy. our d is miles better than last year and luongo seems to have picked it up. hawks d is much worse and they have a rookie in net.
no clue why they are playing hodgson as third line c though, i actually like raymond there he seems to be playing better
also, i have never been to a hawks game, but i have been to like 10 canucks game. and i just think they just play alot better than the hawks.
