Now that the trade deadline has come and gone, and general manager Mike Gillis has made some big moves, how good are the Canucks?

How does the current incarnation of the Canucks stack up against last year's team, which won the President's Trophy and then got to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals?

Last year on February 28th, the Canucks were leading the NHL with 87 points and a 39-15-9 record over 63 games.

This year on February 28th, the Canucks are again leading the NHL with an identical 87 points over 63 games, but this time it comes from a 40-16-7 record. And that doesn't take into account the game against Phoenix on February 28th, 2012, so the Canucks could even better their mark from last year.

Plus, the most crucial difference between this year and last year is that this edition of the Canucks took the sole regular-season meeting between the Canucks and Bruins. And they even won it in Boston! Clearly, this team is destined for the Stanley Cup.

How about some other key stats?
