Smell the coffee, mathonwy. This team is highly overrated. It's how I've felt all year about them, sorry if this doesn't sit all that well with you. Gillis has a sinking ship on his hands.
No, a sinking (sunk) ship would be the Maple Laffs.
Toronto & Columbus were both up around the $61 million mark, did they ice a better product than Vancouver?
In the salary cap era no team can totally dominate another.
Pittsburg had Crosby, Malkin, Neal, Staal & Letang all healthy - and still lost.
Gee, what a surprise, Vancouver doesn't have the same offence without Daniel Sedin, and Rome isn't an upgrade over Ballard.
