Do you guys think AV should work on splitting the Sedins up sometimes, like every other game. (only when they're not lighting it up)

Henrik has already shown he can play just as well without his brother and I'm sure Daniel can too.
This will help make the team harder to play against and we won't be as predictable.

The Sedins cycle game doesn't seem to work very well in the playoffs and this could provide us with another option for when the Sedins get shut down. We have enough depth to do this, and the Sedins will always be together on the powerplay which is their bread and butter.

When the Sedins get put back together they will probably play even better after being split up for a bit. They already said they don't care if they play together. This also will eliminate our 1st line being the softest in the league, and this will make it harder on opposing teams because they will have to develop new strategies to play against the Canucks if the Sedins are split up, because they can't just shut the cycle game down.


(With the players we have now)

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
Booth-Kesler-Raymond
Higgins-Lapierre-Hansen
Weise-Malholtra-Kassian

when Sedins get split up

Burrows-Henrik-Kassian - played awesome together against LA, Kassian will also be better this year

Daniel-Kesler-Booth - 1st line on any team, Daniel can be the playmaker Kes needs and can also score obviously, with Booth crashing the net.

Higgins-Lapierre-Hansen - 3rd line stays the same

Raymond-Malholtra-Weise - solid defensively 4th line, soft, but I'm sure it will be improved with Luongo being traded.

Thoughts?

Like the top 6 but bottom 6 should be

Higgins-Malhotra-Hansen

Weise-Lapierre-Not Raymond

2 wingers playing center (i know higgy can play center but he is alot better as a winger)

1 center playing wing

1 center in press box

I think that looks kinda weird

Maybe, but may be worth a shot at midseason. Just trying to juggle the lines evenly with appropriate talent and size. Kinda hard to split the twins with our current lineup, still might pick up another forward.

I was thinking about a line up with Doan as well. A couple adjustments to your line up:

Daniel - Kesler - Doan
Lapierre - Henrik - Booth (Lappy seemed to work well with Hank while Daniel was out)
Burrows - Weiss - Kassian (package up Luongo for Stephen)
Higgins - Malhotra - Hansen

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.

I don't think splitting them up should be out of the question if they're struggling, but it shouldn't be the norm.

Another one of those ideas that has been suggested before, happens occassionaly, yet people still bring it up as if it's something that's never ever been tried before.

If they were better apart, they'd play apart. As it happens, apart from the occasional shake up, they're better together.

Also, I'd try

Burr - Hank - Booth
Daniel - Kes - Higgins
Hansen - Lapierre - Kassian

If the Twins were to be split. If Raymond's playing well I'd even put him with Hank just to boost his trade value.

In playoffs they play against big shut down defensemen. I think they need a power forward to create some space. Burrows becomes. A target too.

How about we just do this:

D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Doan
Booth - Kesler - Burrows
Higgins - Lapierre - Hansen
Raymond - Malhotra - Kassian

Nun wrong with a good old regular line up, couldn't see why we wouldn't play Doan with first line minutes if we do end up signing him.. :rolleyes:

"It's an opportunity, we don't look at it as a last chance... We look at it as an opportunity to do something great. We are going to take it period by period, shift by shift. You just have to be better than the guy across from you... Every guy in this locker room I can say believes we can do this." - Ryan Kesler

Keep them together unless they're struggling. They're too good together to be split up on a regular basis.

i never use this because its cliche and quite lame... but here it goes.... :picard:


man that felt stupid.. but not as stupid as your first line! seeing Kesler up there makes me want to puke! kesler is one of the best THIRD line centers in the game, he is not a first line center.

He is a greedy player, he doesn't make others around him better, he dives, he is driven by his ego and he is not a team player. dont get me wrong, i like kesler, but chosing him over hank to play with our number one sniper (danny) and a potential signing that has heart and soul is ABSOLUTELY STUPID!

simply put, Henrik makes players around him better and kesler make players around him irrelevant.
