I don't think Pinizotto was close yet. Maybe the finals if we had made it there. But even then, he's missed a whole season so he wouldn't be up to game speed.

Both players are AHL-level talent scrubs. If they are on our 3rd line, then our team stinks. Cheers.
Pinizzotto is an upgrade on Weise. He has good work ethic and grit, he wouldn't be a mainstay on the 3rd line but if players got injured I dont see why he couldn't have filled that spot easily

pinizzotto wouldn't be ready since he hasn't played hockey in a long, long time

Pinizzotto - Pahlsson - Hansen
Move higgins back to line 2

That said, the Volpatti-Lapierre-Weise line was by far our most effective 4th line all season. None of our other 4th line arrangements came even remotely close. Hope to see it back for good next season. The chemistry between these three players was unbelievable, not knocking any of our players but this line was most definitely greater than the sum of its parts.

I liked what Pinizzotto brought to the table, but again, watching the Canucks play in the playoffs with three lines year after year makes me wonder if it's AV or if we just don't have good enough 4th line.
Higgy with Burr and Pahlsson on the third line. Hansen with Lappy and Bitz/Kassian on the fourth line. Then we really would have the most skilled bottom 6. Hopefully Jensen makes the team next year so we can have this trickle down effect.
