Do I think either team is a contender ? NO.. The Canucks just don't have the " fire in the belly" and the Leafs don't have the talent.. The last nucks game was a display of "the Union game - show up but do as little as possible"? UK Canuck must be proud of them .. Maybe the Leafs are a bit hungrier? The last player in a Canucks uniform who displayed that "fire" was Kesler and thats a few years ago now..Yeah I am a Canucks fan but just cancelled my ticket back from Thailand.. This years edition of the Canucks isn't going to the SC finals . If they get shithouse luck and great goaltending they may win the first round .
Hard to disagree more. Aside from Lupul, the Leafs have been a healthy all year. The Nucks have not, to put it mildly. If these two teams faced each other in a 10 game series the Nucks are massive favourites. Not to say the Leafs aren't a solid team, but they are not all that close to the Nucks.
I still love everyone overlooking the Nucks this year - dont really care what everyone says, I'll just watch the games.
