No. 19: Vancouver Canucks

Previous: No. 22

Record: 22-20-6 (50 points)

The Canucks being the top non-playoff team in the West right now, points-wise, is as big an indicator as any that the salary cap is doing a fine job of creating some parity in the league. But this isn’t the kind of parity anyone asked for or wanted.
