Still an outside chance of Edmonton or Columbus getting in but I think it's most likely we face one of these 5 in the first round. Who do you think we would match up best against?

I pesonally don't want to face any one of these teams in the first round lol, but I would love to get revenge on the Kings

St. Louis or the post deadline San Jose Sharks.

The Minnesota Wild have a great core of forwards and a very underrated defense, and of course a successful veteran in Backstrom, but I feel we could beat these guys.

We've struggled against the Wings, so I don't want to play them, although I've always wanted to match up against them.

Los Angeles is a very strong team, and I wouldn't want to risk injuries this soon in the playoffs.

If we come out to play like we did against Chicago 2 years ago, we can beat any of them

All tough.. But I think I would fear LA the most. I would probably choose to play Minnesota.

While running the risk of sounding like a homer, I think the Canucks match-up fairly well against most of the teams in the top 8. I'd love to play Chicago even despite their stellar year so far and I think the team really steps up against Anaheim, Detroit and San Jose.

Minnesota I'm rather undecided but given how the series went the last time these two clubs matched up in the playoffs, I think this is due for a good showdown.

San Jose for sure. They are doing well right now but whoever gets hit hardest by the injury bug will lose

St. Louis. Although their defense terrifies the crap outta me

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I would feel more comfortable saying that if the Sedins were dominating like they did a couple seasons ago. Not being outscored by Subban, Suter and Letang like they are now..

Whoever ends up 5th or 6th place. Probably SJ, MIN, DET. SJ would be the best since they choke every year in the playoffs

I agree.

Personally I always believe in tackling the strongest team first, because it is better to get a team like that early when hopefully you are fittest.
Of course they will on that basis be fittest probably too.
I still think the best break LA got was meeting us first and catching us in a complacent, over confident mood. By the time we woke up we were 3 games down.

Ironically I don't think Chicago play the type of game we would fear. I don't think they would hurt us physically and if that was the case and we were fit I would back us against Chicago any day.

We haven't had a fit Raymond OR Kesler since the 2011 playoffs and to have them back to their best would be frightening for any team, especially if Kassian shows up and we get some production from our bottom 2 lines.

I would say San Jose because they play a similar style as the Canucks..LA and STL are almost identical in so far as they are big,heavy teams that play a more defensive style..the jury is still out whether the Canucks could withstand that sort of punishment.

In 2011 the Canucks played the Blackhawks in the first round,they were our toughest opponents (besides Boston)...
