Kings will take this series..... better on paper and better on the ice.

go with what worked well in the last few games or over the season

lappy/hank/burr
higs/kes/booth
mayray/phalsson/hansen
and then 4th is anyone goes

4th line something like Duco/weise , malhotra , Kassian would be pretty intense..

Reunite the AMEX line. Take Raymond off the first line, or sit him in the press box. The fourth line was terrible last game, so change it up with whoever... just trying something different.

I would keep Luongo, he played great for the first game.

Excatly what I want, Higgins gets the second line going and Raymond is off the first
Dwight Schrute: Where is my desk?
Jim Halpert: That is weird.
Dwight Schrute: This is not funny. This is totally unprofessional.
Jim Halpert: Okay, well you're the one who lost the desk.
Dwight Schrute: I did not lose my desk!
Jim Halpert: Okay, calm down. Where was the last place you saw it?
Dwight Schrute: Okay, who moved my desk!
Jim Halpert: I think you should retrace your steps.

LAPPIERE-Sedin-Burrows
Raymond-Kesler-Booth
Higgins-Pahlsson-Hansen
Weise-Malhotra-Kassian

*If 2nd line isn't working out bring out AMEX and bump Raymond down to 3rd

Hamhuis-Tanev
Edler-Bieksa
GRAGNANI-Salo

*MAG may not be as physical but this guy is young and can play. Was huge in the first round for Buffalo last year maybe he can give a spark!

Biggest concern: Bieksa- Edler pairing. They were on the ice for 3 of the 4 'goals against' last night, that qualifies as 'brutal'. Unfortunately, this isn't new. Since forming, this paring has been consistently brutal.

The problem now is the same problem Gillis had last summer - and failed to address. NO partner for Edler who can eat big minutes. I predicted this issue last summer, I saw this coming. They broke up one of the best shut down pairings in the NHL, to find a partner for Edler. And it still failed. They've tried Rome, Grags, Salo, Sulzer in that spot. Salo and Sulzer were the only guys who looked good, but Sulzers now gone and Salo can't eat the big minutes required to play there.

AV's gonna have to work some magic for the d-pairings, but Edler-Bieksa is not an option going forward.

i think it wouldn't be a bad idea to go back to the lines that were producing down the stretch there. Im not sure why AV would tinker with chemistry going into the playoffs. Line chemistry is far too important to mess with, and I understand something needs to be done to get booth and kes going, but not at the expense of two other lines.

lines should be: (without Daniel)

Burrows-hank-lappy - we have seen what this line can do together.
higgy-kes-Booth - AMEX line has been great everytime they have been put together, and it seems higgy is an all line bandaid
Raymond-Sammy-Hansen. Raymond's speed can give this line a bit of offensive prowess, coupled with hansens play
Kassian- Malholtra- Ebbet/Weise - good energy 4th line. (bitz also, when not suspended)

i think this is the most balanced proposition, that gives us 4 solid lines, 3 of which CAN contribute offensively, and a 4th that might be able to chip in as well.
Sig space too small.

If they're better than why did they almost miss the playoffs?

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

MAG-Tanev ???? That is a disaster pairing..... How about Ballard - Tanev?

I have confidence in Tanev backing up MAG defensively.

bwahahahaha this may be the dumbest thing I've read on here in a long time.
Are you kidding how in the world are the kings better on paper?

We HANDED them that game and they still needed a fluke goal to take it. Relax. It's a long series my friend.

AV used my line up combinations suggestion for game 7 vs Chicago last year. If he uses my lineup suggestion again, Canucks will win.


1. Hansen H.Sedin Burrows (Sedin needs to play with the most dangerous wingers right now, they are Hansen and Burrow )


2. Higgins Kesler Booth (I think keeping all Amercians to one line can motivate them even more. )


3. Lapierre Pahlsson Raymond (Lapierre back to where he belongs , Raymond given a job not to score but to check)


4. Reinprecht Ebbett Weise (Malhotra is weak, Kassian is not ready, I'd rather take my chances with other players)


What has the fact they are Americans got to do with anything, Booth is killing Keslers game.......fact!
