Sure it was a sweep, but IIRC, the games were all close. I like this LA team more than that St. Louis team. And going in, Louie isn't playing nearly as well as when the playoffs started last year.
My other concern here is that the Canucks haven't played well at all in Los Angeles in recent years.

Ehrhoff will be back and hopefully Mitchell isn't far behind him. Even with Luongo's struggles we have a advantage in net, they've had problems in net themselves lately. They have a better blueline but we've got more experience there so hopefully that evens out a little bit. Expect a physical series from Johnson and we all know what Doughty is capable of. Up front they've got some big guns but we have the Art Ross and our SIX twenty FIVE goal scorers cannot by matched by LA. Hopefully our offensive depth and goaltending tips the scales over their blueline.
Looking forward to it!
ALL GAMES ON CBC! JIM HUGHSON IS BACK1!

I kind of felt that St Louis was not much of a test and the Canucks let their guards down after the sweep. Remember they gave up a 3-goal lead late in the first game that gave Chicago the confidence to come back again and again after the Canucks scored throughout the rest of the series. It won't be a sweep against the Kings this time, but the Kings still lack the overall team strength to pull an upset if the Canucks are their usual selves. And the travel can't really be better (excluding San Jose, which is a shorter travel but the Canucks wouldn't have home ice).

There are no pushovers in the west and would be surprised if there were not upsets.
Different story in the East,and would bet money that Mont.,Boston,and Philly are golfing in 2 weeks and am really tempted to throw Ott. in with that group.
Do you people really think we'll see Willie Mitchell in a Canucks uni. again? I wonder if he is holding off on risking reinjury because he knows he won't be back next season.
