What the hell is going on? Kassian, Hamhuis, Kesler and Booth are already out??


Kassain and Hamhuis are back as of Monday but Hammer with the groin is going to have to be careful.

Higgins over Raymond?

Nah; your probably right. Might be fun to see such speed on the 2knd line. Bet line 3 and line 4 get the defensive shifts though?

-_-

Raymond-Schroeder-Kassian it is then.

Yes there is logic to lending Burrows to help the 2knd line. Hmm, how about;

Sedin/Sedin/Hansen
Raymond/Schroeder/Burrows Thats fast! Boston's 2knd line is not big and had the Selke winner last year.
Higgins/Lappy/Kassian
Volpatti/Manny/Weiss

Why Hansen? Like Burrows he's a glue guy that does forechecking, backchecking and add's speed. Where I think Kassian could take advantage scoring wise, the Twins really just need a guy to do their dirty work. Its why Burrows works! Hansen would be better at that at this stage?

Well we don't have much of a choice right now. From the looks of things in practice, Raymond will be on the second line.

Maybe to balance things out a bit more they could do:

Sedin Sedin Kassian
Raymond Lapierre Burrows
Higgins Schroeder Hansen

Looking at it, you have to respect Ossi's perspective; its opportunity for another guy!

Our depth on LW; Danny, Burrows, Booth, Raymond, Higgins and Jensen in Europe. Take one out; we're still fine on the left side. Maybe we'll see Jensen if the injury is going to eat up weeks or months. He should get the call Ossi is suggesting???

Ahem; Its also a calling that we could run out of left wingers to continue to borrow our weak right side. Still a need there which does not have an Ebbet stop gap or Schroeder prospect as we have at centre. I hear a Lou trade fix calling or Arnott who plays centre, but also RW.

I think Kassian makes more sense with the Sedins then Hansen. Hansens been tried there and he doesn't have the hands to finish. Kassian does, and he can make sure nobody touches the Sedins.

What I love about our forward group is our bottom 6. Whenever someone is injured or hurt we have player in the bottom 6 that could jump up and play that kind of role. Depth is really important. Now we have depth on D by acquiring Barker and Vandermeer!


I would have to respectfully disagree about part of the statement that's bolded, Vintage. I didn't see any bottom six (or second liners) jump up and provide a solution when Daniel went down last year. It's arguable Lapierre showed well during his time on the top six and Higgins moves between the second and third line seamlessly, but other than that, where was the depth and production that we were expecting from our group of forwards last season? I didn't see it.

Would definitely agree the defense looks deeper with the addition of Barker and Vandermeer...though I would say that comparatively, the defense was already deeper than the forwards. You could never have enough qualified defencemen in the system.

Booth is not a true Canuck. I surely hope we trade him soon. He always bobbles the puck when he skates and I feel he gets very lucky when he actually is able to control it. Now that he has a bad knee he is not what we need. We have to trade him now while he still has value. We should package booth with luongo. Trade booth a 2nd rounder, and Luongo for Kessel and Reimer. Move Kessel onto wing with raymond. Our lines will look like this once kesler is back:
Sedin Sedin Burrows
Raymond Kesler Kessel
Higgins Lappy Kassian
Weise Schroeder someone???

Boom. We are just about ready to go. Pull the trigger Gillis

If he happens to go on IR watch for the Canucks to sign Arnott to fill 2nd line. That 2nd line combo of Schroeder kass and ebbett or Raymond is WEAK! Might as well make the 3rd line the new 2nd line

But Hansen also wins them the puck, which maximizes time in the offensive end. Kassian is not the energy player that Hansen or Burrows is. I readily admit Kassian might score more than Hansen; but likely the Sedins will score less as they might not even have the puck.

I think Kassian makes more sense with the Sedins then Hansen. Hansens been tried there and he doesn't have the hands to finish. Kassian does, and he can make sure nobody touches the Sedins.

Muscle tear would be great. Heals well with no problems down the road. Adductor tendon insertion (most bad groin strains) is another story. Has the potential to slow a player for good.


Yep, better to have a muscle tear than anything to do with the cartilage.

Not to mention that Hansen, like Burrows, is a speedy defensive player that can back check so that the Sedins can be more aggressive offensively. Kassian isn't there yet, and might be better suited playing with a great 2-way player in Kesler to master his defense.

Wow these injuries are going to pile up all over the league soon. MG did a fantastic job of getting 2 depth defencemen, now he needs to focus on top-6 forwards capable of playing 16-18 minutes a game. Ideally a center and middle-6 forward would be a perfect fit, and we have Luongo and Ballard to move to free up cap space.

Here's how I'd like to see us start the season if Booth isn't ready to go:

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian (or Hansen/Raymond would suffice, everyone has success with the twins)
Higgins - Lapierre - Burrows (ex-Habs and Quebec boys have shown chemistry before)
Raymond - Schroeder - Hansen (very fast line)
Weise - Malhotra - Pinizotto (big hitters and Pinizotto would have out performed every other 4th liner last year if healthy)

Thanx for that backup!

I suppose in a perfect world we could find a bigger winger, who still had the speed and wear with all to do all the dirty work. The difference between Brown in LA and Burrows here is simple; 20 pounds.

When we had CoHo here, and Manny was not injured yet, I always wondered why we did not load the top line with Kesler three or 7 times a game? He could have still played a 2knd line Selke role, but come up to the top line in key situations.

Not to mention that Hansen, like Burrows, is a speedy defensive player that can back check so that the Sedins can be more aggressive offensively. Kassian isn't there yet, and might be better suited playing with a great 2-way player in Kesler to master his defense.

That is a weak 2nd line imo, Raymond is soft, Schroeder is unproven. Kassian is about the only player in that mix I think will be reliable.


Based on WHAT???!................get a grip, if you want to frame it in these terms Raymond IS BY FAR the only PLAYER in that mix.

Not gonna lie, could care less that Booth isn't starting the season in the Canucks lineup.

I'd like to see a line of young guns who play sheltered mins. Higgy-Lappy-Hansen will eat all the tough mins, Sedins line and Mannys line could share the workload. Give Raymond- Schroeder- Kassian all the o-zone starts and 4th line opponents they can handle. Canucks have 2 great goalies and a solid defensive back end - they'll be fine.

Quite honestly, I think many on here are being unfair to Kassian.

You are building him up as if he was Ryane Clowe. He's not, he's still a young guy with much of his "puppy fat" and still it seems to me lacking in stamina, who is yet to find a way to fit in to this team ...................................... yet you propose putting him on the top line with a mission to "hander" (Scots term meaning step in for in a fight) the Twins against some of the toughest D's out there.

Give the youngster a break and stop inserting him into some playstation hero role. Thankfully AV and MG have more sense.

I still don't have Raymond on the 2nd line.

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Higgins - Schroeder - Kassian
Raymond - Lapierre - Hansen
Volpatti - Malholtra - Weise
Ebbett (Blake?)

Hamhuis (?) - Bieksa
Edler - Garrison
Ballard - Tanev
Vandermeer/Barker

Schneider
Luongo

I say keep Luongo, with the condensed schedule we'll need him. Hamhuis sat out practice, as well as Kassian (back), some real questions in our line up all of the sudden.

If Raymond isn't on the second line he really shouldn't be on the roster.

Wrong, if I learned 1 thing with AV in the past years,

our second line will be : Higgins-Lapierre(or Manny)-Hansen

our third line will be : Raymond-Schroeder-Kassian
