Which Western Conference Team Is The Scariest Come Playoff Time?

92 posts in this topic

As the heading says, which team is the scariest come playoff time to play against the Canucks?? (meaning which do you think will make the most noise)

I know alot of you will say any team heading into the playoffs will be a tough test but I want to know which you find scary to play against when the playoffs start. It doesn't really matter what round either.

I find Nashville very intimidating in their stingy defense but what gets me is that they are scoring a bunch now. They have the red hot Rinne behind their pillars Suter & Weber. With their addition of Kostitsyn they now have been playing even better after the trade deadline. They were very good last year in the playoffs but had the goal scoring machine known as Joel Ward, who is now on the Caps, well he is gone. With Rinne posting career stats heading into the post season, do you think this will tire him out heading into the playoffs?

St. Louis is also pretty scary too, they have two goaltenders who are up to the task and they also play stingy defense.

To be honest.... the only team I'd want to play against (and there's not a huge chance) is Calgary or Colorado. The rest of the teams can give us a run for our money. The western conference is just too damn strong

Dallas and Phoenix scare the crap out of me in the first round.

I think with Radulov coming back Nashville will be a tough team to beat. Otherwise I'll still go with Chicago, alays makes for a good series.

Detroit, and maybe Nashville.

Don't worry about St Louis guys, they'll be out in the first round. They're really not a very good team.

I go with Nashville and then St. louis. Nashville is like another canucks team. They have good defense and now they are generating offense.

nux still the team to beat. The only thing stopping them is themselves. if they play out of this recent slump and stay healthy, I still like nux chances.

Nashville.

After the trade deadline, as mentioned before, they have gotten better especially offencely.

Paul Gustaud 5 games, 3 points

A. Kostitsyn, 6 games, 6 points.

Also, the addition of Hal Gill will be very beneficial. It was the right time to add a vet D to strengthen their already strong D.

They already have Pekka Rinne who was amazing in last years series and who can forget Weber and Suter?

Strong team, might give us trouble.

St Louis is a close second and LA would be third on my list. LA has Quick and a VERY scary team on paper. Of course, this is if LA make the playoffs. I am hoping they do not :)

Against Detroit, Chicago, SJ, Dallas and the other teams, if we play our game, we can take them though some may be long series.

Nashville. Even more if they get Radulov back.

Gotta be St.Louis because we seem to have trouble against trap teams, and they seem to have had our number in the past. Although we did sweep them in 08/09, but obviously they're a much different team now. If Halak does what he did for the Canadiens a couple seasons ago, they could be real scary.

Looking at the numbers, why does it seem like we're destined to face Chicago again in the first round? Unless we snap these bad habits and get a winning streak going so we can stay in 2nd in the conference.

Nashville will be tough.

Dallas is getting hot at the right time.

St. Louis with Hitch is a stifling defensive team that has given us problems in the regular season. If AV has no answers to break that, we could be in trouble facing them.

Even the 7th and 8th seeds will be no pushovers. I just hope if we get to the finals the Canucks won't be too beaten up again.

Dallas, Phoenix and Nashville. I think Nashville did the right moves to bolster.... We did not.

St. Louis. Their defence and PK has been dominant. Pair that with our recent scoring slump and struggling PP and things look scary.

Also, keep in mind that we haven't been able to beat Dallas yet. Here's hoping we turn that around next week!
