Basically a perfect storm, toughest team in the league vs. anyone who cant score on the power play. Not exactly a situation that was conducive to a Canuck win.
Well that and the rules change the deeper you get in the playoffs. It's not a secret, and the Canucks have done almost nothing fix that. In fact, they are even MORE reliant on the PP this year (at least thus far).
The Canucks weren't going to win that series with toughness. But it's a very bitter pill to swallow when your team is obviously physically weaker AND loses. There's no doubt the more skilled team lost, but that's why the games are played.
Either way, Recchi's words, and his actions in that series (finger waving etc.) shows what a goof he is. This is a 41 year old man acting like a 20 year old. Love how AV responded... basically took the high road and pointed out how classless Recchi is.
