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

This is my line up for the Hawks game if Booth comes back. If not then:

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

"It's an opportunity, we don't look at it as a last chance... We look at it as an opportunity to do something great. We are going to take it period by period, shift by shift. You just have to be better than the guy across from you... Every guy in this locker room I can say believes we can do this." - Ryan Kesler

I think you'll see something along the lines of:

D. Sedin - H. Sedin - A. Burrows
C. Higgins - R. Kesler - J. Hansen
D. Booth - J. Schroeder - M. Raymond
A. Volpatti - M. Lapierre - Z. Kassian/D. Weise

I don't think you can use Schroeder in a checking role, so I think Kesler's line is going to be out against the top line of the opposing team and Schroeder's line will be our secondary scoring line.

I think Kassian may get bumped down to Chicago and called up in case of injury. Don't really see much point keeping him up for 4th line duty, especially since PP time is going to be difficult to give him.

Another option would be putting Kassian back w/ the Twins and Burrows w/ Kesler, but then that leaves Hansen/MayRay/Higgins/Booth on the 4th line.

Our forward group is too damned deep w/ Kesler and Booth back :lol:

I see Patty and Weise sharing the remainder of the season, with Weise likely getting the nod in the playoffs.

i wouldn't think of it in terms of demotion, but more so about chemistry, so I would put Higgins to the 4th line to play with Lapierre. Both of them play well with each other, are tenacious forecheckers, have good speed, and played well in the 2011 playoffs. Here are my lines when Booth returns:

D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Burrows*
Booth - Kesler - Kassian*
Raymond - Schroeder - Hansen
Higgins - Lapierre - Volpatti/Weise**

* Burrows and Kassian are interchangeable depending on needs
** depending on if we need more toughness or speed
