Lineups At Practice

Recommended Posts

The Sedins are not getting split up. They're way better together than they are apart. And they've had some pretty good success against the Kings in the past couple of seasons.

Lets just hope that now that Hank is rolling, it will spark Daniel to be better. Kind of like when Danny went down a couple seasons ago and Hank ripped it up, and then he came back and both of them went on a tear.

I dislike Ramond on any line, but he is useful for PK

Really we won many games up to game 7 SCF with what you call a soft top 6 ... i.e. the sedins were missing as was Kesler mainly through injuries Burrows also.Couldn't get a softer top 6 than that I don't think.

Edler-Bieksa worries me just slightly defensively. I'd rather see a defense like:

Hamhuis-Bieksa

Edler-Tanev

Rome-Salo

But hey, if the coaching staff thinks this'll work, I'm behind it.

Yea, I see Edler-Bieksa pretty much being on par with Edler-Ehrhoff. Now we have a legitmate stay-at-home shutdown top pairing with Hamhuis-Tanev though.

And if we can get Ballard-Salo together on the bottom pairing, that's a pretty strong 1-6 core.

the top 2 lines might even out, but i think nux 3rd and 4th lines are deeper.

they may be the key in this series

Some people are confusing the role of the Edler-Bieksa pairing. It's an all-out, push-offence pairing that will likely see Ozone start rates that are through the roof. The other two pairings will get the hard minutes.

Ballard, PLEASE hurry up and come back to the line-up. You can't go wrong with having one of the best skaters in the NHL, instead of a guy like Aaron Rome.

However, it is nice to see Tanev get the promotion... this is huge for his development and I am very excited for him! He's been playing great thus far.

Edlers going to up his physical game in the playoffs like he always does and I'm sure Bieksa will too, so that will be a very physical pair thats good offensively, and we have Hamhuis and Tanev as the shut down pair, so it should work alright hopefully.
