This should be a great series .... The NHL doesn't give a shit which of the 2 Canadian teams wins so we.may actually see decent officiating 

 

Oilers will score 2 to 3 per game ..... We need EP and a few others to show up this series as defense and goal tending alone won't best the Oilers like it did with the Preds

Need to exploit Edm suspect defense and pressure the goalie who's playing well.  Won't beat Edm by setting NHL record for least amount of shots in 2 rounds.  Stay out of box and commit to their system that got'em here.

I think we match up pretty well against the Oilers. I see a lot of pessimistic people, but it's also not like this is an Oilers team that has a history of deep playoff runs. 

 

The Canucks are pretty good at taking a team and dragging them to their level, even if they're as high octane as the Oilers. It'll obviously be way more open than the Predators series, but that goes both ways, and the Canucks have shown the ability to explode offensively, even if they did most of that at the beginning of the season.

 

The Oilers did look really, really good against the Kings, but the Kings barely had any business being in the playoffs anyways. I'm going to say Canucks in 6, because there's something to this team's ability to grind things out. It especially bodes well over a best of 7 series. They won't go down easy.

Oilers depend so heavily on just 3 or 4 players, is what makes me think Tocchet will take advantage of that.

Canucks in 5.  Edmonton still has absolute trash on their blueline and a captain with severe character issues.  The Oilers are not a good hockey team and they're about to get exposed.
