Do the Vancouver Canucks Have What It Takes To Compete for the Stanley Cup

So the question is do the Canucks really have what it takes to make it to the Stanley Cup finals.Of course the last time this happened was 1994.

While reading a fanboy article, I was thinking about this year’s edition of the Canuck’s as a group and whether they had what it takes to make it to the finals like the 1994 team.

I have been under the impression that this group was not as talented (scoring wise) as the '94 team with Bure, Linden, Courtnall, Ronning, Craven and Lumme but may be better defensively and in goal with Roberto Luongo.

Of course there are the intangibles like luck, matchups and the indomitable spirit of Trevor Linden.

But being the analytical sort, I thought I would play with a few statistics and see what they had to say.

What follows is what comes of an afternoon reminiscing and contemplating whether the 2009 edition of the Vancouver Canucks might be worthy of mention when compared to the 1994 Stanley Cup runners up.
