Chicago has the PT pretty much locked up, they would have to play .500 hockey and the Canucks would have to go on a hot streak for the Canucks to have any chance of catching them. However, the Canucks have won the last two PT's, so if they go on a deep playoff run, it shouldn't come as a surprise to many other than the haters. The bright side of finishing 2nd or 3rd would be that the Canucks wouldn't have to play Chicago until the conference finals. Who knows how many injuries they accumulate before then? They might even get upset. Crawford has yet to play well when it counts, and cost Chicago the series vs Phoenix last playoffs. I don't fear LA, Quick has fallen back down to Earth. I don't take Anaheim too seriously either, Fasth is already cooling off from his hot streak. I think Vancouver could take anyone else in the hunt, once they get their problems sorted out.
