10) The Media.....Supportive yet restrained, leaving the coaching and second guessing to the Vancouver media

9) The City.....Affluent, growing, mild winters, world class, most of the players make this their home as well as many players from other teams

8) The Fans.....Best in the league, flags flying everywhere, and where else can you throw between 40,000 and 120,000 fans on the street a dozen times and not have any problems

7)The Also Rans are also Scoring.....Amonte, Yelle, Lundmark, Donovan, Simon, Lombardi have all found the net lately and have insured that the Iginla line won't have to do it all alone

6) Confidence.....When a team has this it makes a huge difference, knowing that there is not a team in the league that they can't shutdown, shutout or otherwise defeat creates a winning atmosphere

5) Coaching.....Sutter has shown that his system works, his players all buy into it and when they execute they win

4) Work Ethic.....Best in the league, every team knows that to beat Calgary they have to outwork them and in 1 or maybe 2 games it's possible but in a 7 game series it's just not gonna happen

3) Jerome Iginla.....A player almost in a different league, when he's on he can lift the play of everyone around him and can change the outcome of a game almost singlehandedly

2) Miikka.....He can change the outcome singlehandedly

1)D.....Team defence is the best in the league and defence wins series, noone can intimidate this team in a 7-game series...no one!!!!!

In my unbiased opinion (which is hard because I hate the Flames) if Kiprosoff doesn't win the Vezina this year then I am going to urinate on my Oilers jersey until the Todd MacFarlane autograph is washed out. He's the primary reason why the Flames have gone so far. If their offense can get going, now is the time to do so because it's been asleep all year.

the flames offence is ranked 27 in the league, if kipper is not the best goalie in the playoffs then they will have a tough time getting past dallas and detroit
or whoever comes out of the east

Perhaps I spoke too soon....about the Flames playing E'town in the first round.

After tonight it may be the Sharks that will get burned first :D

By the way how's the Oilers record against Dallas????????

They've got a very un-Canuck-like eight shutouts. Vancouver has zero shutouts. It is an indication of team defense, hard work, willingness to sacrifice for the Team, backchecking, etc.

Look on the bright side, if the Canucks do make the playoffs, they definitely won't be playing the Flames in the first round. :eek:
