Will Daniel be back in time to defend against Anze's attack?
Let's start with the Canucks and the Kings.
If you're a Canadian from British Columbia, you're not going to like this, but you've got to face facts. With Sedin's status for the series uncertain, the Canucks just aren't the same team.
Yes, he's skating with the team in practice, but will he be cleared to play in time to make a difference? You can never tell with concussions.
Here's another fact, Jonathan Quick had 10 shutouts this year in 69 starts. Ten!
Luongo had a respectable five but almost lost his starting job earlier this season. Face it, he hasn't proven he can come through in a tight spot.
The Kings are young and able. I'm not saying they're the best team in the league, but with Sedin out, I think this one could go a lot longer than one might think. Kings in seven, but it's going to be so close.
