-Malhotra will still take most of the faceoffs, having Malhotra on that line as a mentor for Schroeder could provide a real boost for his development
-One of the best ways for Schroeder to learn how to win faceoffs, is to watch one of the best in the game doing it right in front of him everyday.
-Last season sometimes Manny would take the faceoff and then switch over to wing due to his eye injury. Schroeder is most comfortable playing center, he has struggled when he has to play wing, so it would work if him and Manny switch.
-Based on the forwards we have as of today, this is the lineup I'd like to see.
Daniel Sedin ----------- Henrik Sedin ---------David Booth
Mason Raymond ------Ryan Kesler-----------Alexandre Burrows
Chris Higgins ---------- Maxim Lapierre------- Jannik Hansen
Jordan Schroeder------Manny Malhotra------ Zack Kassian
Aaron Volpatti----Andrew Ebbett ($0.600m) /
-if you were to add Kassian to there line it would help him as well. His minutes would be limited and controlled (AV loves that).
-Malhotra would be the perfect on ice coach for both Kassian and Schroeder. he will tell them what to look for and where to be and what mistakes they made.
