Apart from Thatcher Demko, the Canucks will be playing the best version of their current roster. The same can’t be said for the Oilers since the Oilers head coach announced that Adam Henrique’s experience would not be in the line-up.

The Oilers came out hot against the Kings, Connor McDavid and his troops only required five game to overcome one of the NHL’s top defensive team.

However, the regular season has shown that the Canucks had the Oilers’ number. Hopefully, they came to develop what they’ve built with the young Arturs Silovs between the pipes.
