They arent as physical no way. Theyre faster and have more scoring depth up front but other than Reaves they dont have 4 lines of pounders like that blues team
Witchcraft... Oh, but it IS. A dark and terrible magic...

The Knights success is their consistent buzzsaw speed through all 4 lines, they just come at you in waves, it’s non stop. They will definitely be a tougher match up. Size is not an issue, we can handle. People think because of Pettersson and Hughes we are small, we are not on the whole. We can handle size.

This. And their goaltending will be much better.

For sure Vegas is a tough team top to bottom but the Canucks just beat the Blues playing that same game with great goaltending. I prefer the underdog talk, the more the better and it's probably the last year the Canucks will surprise or sneak up on anybody. If they play at the level they have been and remain relatively healthy, anything can happen.

Reaves is a tough dude but who are their chippy guys, like equivalents to a Perron, Blais, or Schenn?

There was a report Toffoli skated yesterday (I'm guessing his injury is a sprained ankle).

And there were whispers that he might have been ready if there had been a Game 7.

Myers has a "slightly separated shoulder" and is rumoured to be available at some point in this upcoming series.

I'm an eternal optimist so I'm choosing to believe they'll both be back for Game 1, which would be YUGE.
