It's funny how people's views change after Getzlaf had a bad season. Before last year, he had 4 straight seasons of being over a point per game. He's big, he can pass, play physical, fight, and he has a cup under his belt. And I'm 100% sure he would be motivated on a much better team like the Canucks.
Getzlaf would be a beast centering our second line... If only we could get without losing Kesler, the twins, Burrows, Bieksa, Hamhuis, Edler and Schnieder.
Daniel - Henrik - Burrows
Booth - Getzlaf - _____
Higgins - Kesler - Hansen
Malholtra - Lapierre - _____
We would barely need to use our 4th line unless we were protecting the lead. Alos, if Kassian somehow breaks out this season and miraculously fits well with the twins, Burrows can slot down on the second line and we'd have quite the stacked team. Kesler's ice time wont be decreased by too much (plus, it wouldn't hurt to rest Kesler as much as possible since he is coming back from surgery and we need him at 100% to log big minutes in the playoffs.
Our powerplay would be unstoppable. Getzlaf would open up so much more space for everyone, and we'd likely have a unit that could move the puck better than any other team in the league. The Twins already create such nice plays, just imagine how much nicer the plays will be with arguably one of the best passers in the league joining two more of the best passers in the world. =)
