First of all I would just like to say that the Canucks look outstanding on the ice as they are all back in to game shape form. We have heard a ton of credit for the speedster line recently, this made me think to myself why dont we give credit to possibly the most dangerous third line in the NHL. They have looked phenominal. Higgins is a beast especially against the boards, Maxim Lapierre I would say is considered the beastiest especially after last night performance but its hard to deside considering the fact that their is a legit beast on the line in Zach Kassian who is 6'3 like 225 pounds and is monsterous looking. Anyways getting to the point, I love this line Lapierre and Higgins have tremendous chemistry and Kassian adds so much to the table. They have been together for 3 games and those were 3 really effective games they look very similar to the Torres Manny Hansen line of a few years back except on paper they might even be better. I enjoy this line because they bring so much energy that no line can match, Konopka almost had a panic attack last game after he kept getting abused on the boards from the raft of the third line. When faulk hit sedin against the boards and Lapierre went after him that made me happy despite the terrible penalty call because we made a statement last night that we will no longer take crap anymore. This line can grind hit and score, and I already cannot wait to see them play on Friday.
The only thing is Ray Ferraro made an interesting statement yesterday saying Vigneault should let Lapierre run his mouth , but just in the lines while doing it do u agree? and what do u guys think of the third line?

yes and yes but everyone needs to settle down a bit with all this beast talk like etsen3 said ... look at our record... now look at the games we've won ... now look at our division... 8-2-2 6 wins vs our division currently minni and edmonton are tied at 10th and 11th and calgary and colorado are 14th and 15 in the conference... i wonder why we look so good. 406281dylan needs to back off the "canucks look outstanding" and "most dangerous 3rd line in the nhl" and all this crap beast talk save it for when we actually put away a good team and controlling an entire game vs the blackhawks dosent count thye took 2 nights completely off vs canucks and flames on that road trip and still pulled out 3 of 4 points. good teams can play terrible and still get points unlike nucks vs duck or nucks vs sharks. this next stretch should be a good test for them.

It might be better for Lappierre's game to let him be that agitator guy that he's oh-so-good at being...but on the other hand, does it lead to distraction for the rest of the team? Av and co. have clearly made efforts to muzzle him a little bit ever since he first came here. Idk, Maybe they've got a good reason. If it were up to me, I think I'd let Lappy be Lappy though.

I like the line, but I'd rather see Kassian playing on one of the top 2 lines making a bigger impact come playoff time.

I'd rather put all the pests on one line together and have Kassian up with the Sedins to protect them.

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Kassian is proving he's more skilled than Burrows this season, amazing hands, bigger body and far tougher.

Raymond - Schroeder - Hansen
Speedy line, this will probably stay our 3rd line when Kes/Booth return even though Raymond is our best forward so far.

Burrows - Lapierre - Higgins
All great forecheckers, ex-Habs have proven chemistry as do the two French Canadians. Most annoying line to play against.

Volpatti - Malhotra - Weise
Big bodies, hitters.

It would be a good line for when games get tight, rough, and become defensive battles with a lot of banging and crashing.

So if thats a line, and sedin/sedin/burrows is a line, and raymond/schroeder/hansen is a line...

does that mean its booth/kesler/volpatti? or does raymond play 2nd line and then we make volpatti/schroeder/hansen our 4th line?

Why yes to Lapierre yapping? They need to cut that crap out entirely and stay disciplined and focused. No chirping, no yapping and certainly no diving. We cant afford to get on the ref's bad side, it can really hurt in the play-offs. We need toughness and grit and be able to answer the bell when its called for, but the focus must be on playing good hockey like they are doing now.

As you can tell from my name and sig, I'm a big supporter of Burrows. He's a hard working guy who manage to make our 1st line despite not being drafted. That being said. Kassian is a 1st round draft pick in his second year in the NHL. He not only has a good set of hands in front of the net, he's strong along the boards and is a very good passer. Kassian obviously has more natural talent to work with.

Personally I wouldn't want to see "Speedy" split up, even if it puts them on the 3rd. For the first time I see a line with speed AND passing in our team and I want to see how it develops. I also love how Hansen has bought into it and he seems to be back to his best. There doesn't seem to be any ego's on that line at all.

I think we have a problem with Kes and Booth. One of them needs to go imo and I think Kesler is a far better player. That said I have been wrong in the past and I am quite happy for a Booth - Kesler - Burrows line to be given a run into the playoffs.

However if I was AV/MG I would have Kes and Booth into my office and told what the score was "Pass, or one of you will be packing his bags"

We really need to get this line re-tuned and playing as a line. It hasn't happened since Booth came and ok I know he AND Kes scored some goals last year but they were essentially individual efforts and both were closed out easily in the playoffs, due in my opinion to Kes's injury and lack of chemistry.

Allow them to be who they are. The league has proven that the Canucks are wrong even when defending the running against their superstars. They'll never get the benifit of doubt so protect yourselves and them team.
The teams know the get screwed by the refs so screw it play your game. You already know the majority of the calls will go against you and they'll use whatever excuse they can use. (ie. like Lappeirre and Burrows are to yappy and disturbing the game).
Whatever play your game and let the team owners deal about reffing with the league.

With all this "beast" talk, Pierre McGuire must be in the house.

Though Ferraro has a point, Lappy has to learn how to play with the same level of intensity without being yappy. I think this is what he's striving to do and so far this season, has shown that he can do it. I think Lappy is getting comfortable with his added weight and it seems to me that he is more confident taking on the bigger guys, so he's letting his physical play do the talking.

The line of Higgy -- Lappy -- Kass is a good combination...at the very least, with our current roster being what it is, it is giving AV the opportunity to try out combinations that we may not have otherwise considered. This line is big, fast and skilled...just what you want from a third line.

One thing that has developed nicely is the emergence of both Kass and Shroeder as NHL players. With these two young guys in the line-up, coupled with their versatility, it has given AV multiple options...something he didn't have in years past.
