Think of the Winnipeg Jets as a poor man's Los Angeles Kings. They're a near-dominant possession team, with modest finishing power and the uncanny knack to overcome suspect goaltending. They're big, mean, and hard to separate from the the puck. And just like the Kings, they were unceremoniously dispatched by the Canucks!
They didn't make it look easy. Vancouver was generally outplayed for the entire first half of the game, but a solid performance from Eddie Lack was enough to keep them in it and secure the 5-2 victory in front of the Rogers Arena faithful.
Lets break it all down, on the other side of the jump.

On Tuesday morning, the Vancouver Canucks signed defensive defenseman Chris Tanev to a lucrative five-year contract extension. No one doubts Tanev's ability to key the rush or block shots or disrupt the possession game of Vancouver's opponents, but the 25-year-old's offensive game has been non-existent throughout his career.
Does that matter? Nope, but we understand the confusion. Let's get into precisely why it doesn't matter on the other side of the jump.
