Wow, seriously? So he likes to hunt and he's a Christian, you have a problem with that?
If Booth isn't too busy hunting or reading the bible i wouldn't mind seeing this lineup at some point.
The second anyone turns weak call up Vandermeer.

Lol you put Higgins on the 2nd line and Raymond on the 4th? Have you seen the stat line? Also, Malhotra will play ahead of Volpatti or Wiese - best faceoff man on the team by a wide margin - he's clicking at 70%.
Higgins - 5 ESP
Raymond - 4 ESP
Higgins is more physical, stronger on the puck & showed some more recent chemistry on the short-lived "AMEX" line.
None of Higgins, Hansen or Raymond are 4th liners, but when the team is healthy one of them is going to have to be.

Like Kesler, I hope he doesn't come back until 100%. No excuses. Come on Booth - play like you can.
For some reason I see Booth Kesler Kassian as our 2nd line. Talent combined with brute force. On the other hand, that puts players like Schroeder and Raymond on the 3rd line or lower... and they aren't exactly prototypical 3/4th line players.
Should be interesting.

Id like to see...
Sedin Sedin Kassian (scoring and puck possession)
Burrows Kesler Hansen (shutdown and counter attack)
Raymond Schroeder Booth (secondary scoring, while responsible defensively)
Higgins Lapierre Volpatti (shutdown and energy

Last season, he battled injuries and adjustments to a new team and still played decent and yet some "fans" are unhappy that he still wasn't producing enough (playing with a gimped center no less).
