SJ is quite a bit better than Van offensively.
Van is quite a bit better (and much deeper) than SJ defensively.
Teams are about even when it comes to toughness / grit.
Van is better than SJ in net, but Nabokov isn't too shabby.
SJ's good players are choke artists. Van's star goalie choked in his last playoff appearance.
I think we'll have to actually let the season play out to see who's better.
