As we are about to start the 2015 Stanley Cup playoffs, any good analyst would look into the true talent of the team to see how likely they are to win though they'd also note that - given how short the Stanley Cup tournament is - predicting outcomes is more of a crap shoot as shooting percentages and variances play a larger role.
Let us take a deeper look into the Vancouver Canucks and see why the odds are already stacked against them. (Hint: You might want to start picking another team).

After the John Tortorella tire fire era, there was understandably a lot of apathy amongst the Canucks faithful going into this season. Let’s face it, they were no longer the team that could run the table like they did from 2009 to 2012 - a period which will undoubtedly be remembered as the golden age of Canucks hockey. In all honesty, the 2014-15 edition of the Canucks really couldn’t hold a candle those teams, but you know what? They weren’t the 2013-14 Canucks either. This team wasn’t the power house of years gone, but once you adjusted your expectations to be a bit more realistic, man were they fun to watch this year.
Before we embark on a hopefully long and fruitful playoff journey, let's take a look back on the regular season that was.

We are back with another edition of the Canucks Weekly Prospect Report, where I dig into all the latest stats, rumours, gossip, news, achievements, and even made up stories from around the different junior hockey leagues. We look into the play of all (non-AHL) Canucks prospects from the CHL, NCAA, Europe, and even the ECHL.
Without further ado, continue past the jump to see what went down!

You probably didn't sleep last night did you? Understandable, I mean, it's the first day of playoffs! Game 1 is finally here and just hours away. We've heard all the series previews and predictions and now its time to play the games for real. Canucks and Flames, best of 7, TONIGHT!
The Canucks have quite the seasoned team going into this post season and despite what the experts say, if a few things go their way, Vancouver might be able to accomplish something they've never done: beat the Flames in less than 7 games (not counting the best of 5 series). OH, you thought I meant the Cu....It's Game ONE, settle down.
