I would like to keep Raymond in the lineup but he just doesn't fit.
Every line other than the sedin line has been playing well, so why split up 3 great lines just so one will look great?
Hopefully our forward lineup will look like this right before the playoffs.
My first choice is Burrows. His speed and grit STILL seems to surprise other teams, and before you can blink he has crashed into one or two defensemen and fished the puck out and back to a Sedin.
But if AV wants to try the Byfuglien method of using a big bruiser to dominate the front of the net, I'd say Bitz would be the better choice. Kassian is not ready yet for that kind of role. And this way Kassian still anchor the 4th line. He and Lapierre have a great chemistry.
