Its way too much travel and wear and tear. When the Ducks won in 07 I believe Giguere only played 18 games. I believe he was injured or may have had issues with his son ??? and that contributed to somewhat to his lower games played total. That said i'm a firm believer in the travel having a big effect on the west coast teams and there has only been one west coast team win the cup.
Canucks should have shaved two or three games off their playoff schedule in the first two rounds last year and put the boots to the Hawks and the Predators. They also would have saved themselves a lot of bird time as well. One wonders how things may have turned out is they had only played 15 games going into the finals instead of 18.
I will cheer for both goalies and I only hope AV is a little quicker on the draw if/when Luongo shits the bed.
agreed in general
I think losing those games really hurt more than a lot of people gave credit for last year...
lets hope they have learned to bear down better this year.
