Power Rankings
The Canucks didn't do a lot to help themselves now, but maybe they didn't need to. They took a flyer on former top prospect Sven Baertschi and brought in Cory Conacher. They're comfortable in second in the Pacific right now and didn't need to do much.
The Canucks appear to be ready to play without starting goalie Ryan Miller for a while, but that may not be so difficult. Eddie Lack has been holding his own this season and could play adequately enough to keep the Canucks in the playoff picture.
Over the past month or so, the Canucks appear to have started stabilizing a bit. They're still struggling to put together lengthy streaks, but they've won 6 of 10 and remain in playoff position.
Vancouver is clinging to the last wild card spot in the West and can only look on as multiple teams start gaining on them. It won't get easier, either. Six of their eight remaining games in February are against teams in playoff position.
It is really hard to figure out what to make of the Canucks. The goaltending has been OK, the offense kind of comes and goes and they've lost six of their last 10. The Canucks have playoff position now, but it sure seems precarious.
Vancouver has a prety good hold on that third playoff spot in the Pacific Division, but how they handle the pressure of this race could be telling about new head coach Willie Desjardins and the veterans on this roster.
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.
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.
