that detroit team was a powerhouse from the coach on down.
to compare this version of the canucks to that team and think that we can duplicate what they did is laughable.
Open your eyes junior, this Canucks team is a powerhouse from the coach on down.
To all the AV haters, Bowman won the president's trophy two years in a row without winning the cup, and that Red Wings team got swept in the finals in their first appearance. I'm sure people were even calling for Bowman's head at the time.
So no, to compare a team with two MVP's and Art Ross Winners, a Selke winner, a Jack Adams winner, and a Jennings winner is not laughable.
I'll remind you that the league was ALOT less competitive then, and the Red Wings had the same advantage of being in a weak division.
And FYI, those players are hall of famers because they won the cup. It took winning it all to make them legendary players, just like it will take the Sedins, Kesler, and the rest of the team to do that.
