Can the Canucks go back-to-back-to-back? (And then get eliminated in the first round again?)
Partly because they play in such a thoroughly woeful division, the Canucks managed to repeat as President's Trophy winners last season. But their first round playoff exit, in five games at the hands of the eventual Stanley Cup Champions, marred the 2011-12 campaign as a "failure."
Being at the absolute top of the table is a testament to the quality and consistency of the roster, but regular season dominance simply isn't the goal for this club, or their management team.

There are conflicting reports, but it appears as if Justin Schultz, with his representatives from Newport Sports in tow, will begins to hear pitches from individual teams hoping desperately to land the highly touted 21 year old defenseman on Thursday. That's per Bob Mckenzie:
The UFA defenceman and his agents will over the next two days meet in Toronto with a small group of teams he has on his shortlist.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) June 28, 2012
