After watching the home opener and seeing Big Bert, I can't help but think about the glorious days of the West Coast Express. It got me thinking who in our 50th anniversary team could form this formidable line and terrorize oppositions again. The way I see it, a front loaded lineup of "oh captain, my captain" Horvat, Pettersson, and Boeser resembles the good old days of Bertuzzi, Morrison, and Naslund. I, personally, would love to see a West Coast Express 2.0, if ever possible.
I understand this might be a waste of time for all you fans to read, but if you think about it, does it work with our current group of players? As in, will juggling all our forward lines to bring back WCE be worthwhile?
This would be my fantasy line combinations for the forward group:
Pettersson - Horvat - Boeser
Pearson - Miller - Leivo
Ferland - Gaudette - Virtanen
Eriksson/Schaller - Beagle - Sutter
Go, Nucks Go!
