Here's the best quotes from the article:
"...make no mistake when it comes to this franchise, the light is dying for this group which has been together for so long and played so well in this city."
"...the core group is at the age where injuries will always be a concern so this has now pretty much become the accepted norm"
"It would take nothing short of a miracle for this Vancouver team to overcome this deficit and if you're looking at what appears to be a certain first round exit at this point, you have to wonder where this team goes from here."
"The Sedins have one more year on their contracts but thinking that they are somehow going to have enough left in the tank to consider a team centered around them with a realistic chance of winning a Cup is becoming increasingly unrealistic"
"And with Lui at this age now, the game always seems to wear on him to the point where the later it gets, the more and more pucks end up catching him by surprise"
"As this long Vancouver run of dominance runs it's course, it's going to be tough for the fan base. They came so close, but now the goal is slowly drifting away."
