Cup run a cakewalk or are Canucks creampuffs?

Juxtaposing the sudden media love-in over the 2010-2011 edition of the Vancouver Canucks (predictions for President's trophy and Stanley Cup championships are starting to pile up including The Hockey News and TSN) with the 40 years of frustration and disappointment Canuckleheads like me have suffered through, the frantic search for signs as to which way this season will go is on.

And where better to look for signs than in logos?

To wit:

Vachon is known for its tasty treats and pastries, including the iconic Jos. Louis.  Both the Vachon chef icon and the Vancouver Canucks lumberjack icon show a mustachioed man's face, both wear hats and both are cradled in a 'V'.  There are differences (beard vs. no-beard, hand vs. no-hand, blue & green vs. red), but the similarities are too stark to miss.

So what exactly does this omen foretell?  Are the Canucks going to enjoy a cakewalk to Stanley Cup glory or will they be cream puffs once again?

Only the pastry chef knows for sure.
