Power Rankings
The Canucks just keep hanging around, even with an offensive attack that has been relatively inconsistent. Vancouver is on a three-game winning streak and now sits second in the Pacific.
The Canucks can't ever seem to get too comfortable this season. The uneven results, particularly when it comes to generating offense, may be even more concerning than the club's volatile goaltending.
The Canucks remain clinging to the second playoff spot in the Pacific, but also have three games in hand on next closest opponent San Jose. This is a team still seeking some consistency, though.
The Canucks sit in second place in the Pacific Division with four games in hand on the first-place Ducks. Coming off of the disaster last season, Vancouver has been a real pleasant surprise.
The Canucks are clinging to that last playoff spot in the Pacific, but the emergency of the Sharks, continual success of the Ducks and the Kings being the Kings, it's going to be a battle to the end.
A four-game skid in which their offense and goaltending have simultaneously failed them, leave the Canucks looking like they've hit a wall. Starting a four-game homestand with a 5-1 loss Saturday wasn't the best way to right the ship.
The Canucks have been a real Jekyll and Hyde team, especially evident in Sunday's loss to Ottawa. There may be some growing pains, but Vancouver remains formidable.
The Canucks have been streaky at times this year, but there's no denying that the offense is clicking at a more consistent clip than last year. That's going to carry them a ways.
The amazing thing about Vancouver's strong start is that it doesn't look like they've even come close to paying their best hockey yet. It's going to be tougher to do so without Dan Hamhuis, though.
A pair of ugly losses recently have made the Canucks look like they're on a little less stable ground, but the bigger picture suggests this team is for real and could still be a thorn in the Pacific Division's side.
Preseason Power Rankings
Have you seen the puck movement the Canucks have been displaying this year? New coach Willie Desjardins certainly is letting them play and the results include a 2-0 record.
