Why is everyone forgetting about Hansen?

They've already stated that Higgins was practising at center. In a short season we need a reliable second line capable of decent production. Not an untested group of Rookies.
Malhotra will man the third with ebbet and another defensive forward
Lappy will center with Weiss and probably volpatti and they will hardly see onetime.
Our pk is going to be manny and hansen and lappy and raymond.
No way shroeder and kassian play. Neither one has played well at camp.

having said all that: I don't know what I think of MayRay, Schroeder, Hansen for a second line. Unless Mason Raymond has a career start to the season, the line won't hold up.
Kassian Sedin Sedin - two playmakers, a physical presence, and scoring
Burrows Higgins Schroeder - grit, forecheck, faceoffs a playmaker, and a natural finisher (and yes Schrorder has played the wing a lot)
Hansen Lappy Raymond - speed, forecheck, defence (Hansen can play either side, well meaning he can move up and down on either side)

I just read this - he's got a chance to put up some good numbers this year.
Apparently in practice today, Hansen is on the first unit power play, with Sedins, Edler, Garrison.
