Kassian really showed us what a great player he is, and how well he works with the Sedins, I therefore hope that he stays with them all season long. We can place Burrows on the second line with Kesler, they've shown chemistry all their careers plus they are both great defensive players.

As much as I love Manny, I think it's time to let him go. He really isn't NHL calibre anymore :( give him a job in the management in some way.

With Burrows on the second line, i really think we can afford having an offensive third line (Schroeder centering it). He did a great job playmaking the second power play unit as only got better as the game progressed. I also think that Raymond had a great game, he didn't fall down too much, and damn thy wrister!

Put Lappy on the fourth line, and make it a defensive and hard working energy line.

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

Bieksa - Hamhuis
Garrison - Edler
Tanev - Ballard

Schneider
Luongo

PP1:

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Garrison - Edler

PP2:

Raymond - Kesler - Schroeder
Bieksa - Hamhuis

BP1:

Kesler - Burrows

BP2:

Hansen - Lappiere


I think this looks like a great team, maybe the third line is a bit soft, but apart from that I don't see a flaw. I would trust every line in the defensive zone, and they can score some goals too!

What do you guys think?

1. Schroeder is an offensive player who won't be playing a checking role as a 3rd line center...pretty sure he gets sent back down unless he really impresses before Kesler comes back.

2. Lapierre has earned the 3rd line center spot.

3. There is no way Hansen is going to be on the 4th line.

4. Volpatti is a main stay on the 4th line. To point out, Canucks were too worried Volpatti would get claimed before the season started which is why they didn't send him down to the Wolves in September. He brings energy and is a great hitter.

Until a trade is made, that's fine. But I want a legitimate 3rd line centre if we're planning on going deep in the playoffs. No offense to Schroeder, but it'd be nice to have a veteran like Pahlsson again.

He hits like a tank, just like he did when he was a scrawny 15 and 16 year old. Now hes thick as a tree.
