Tanev- is the guy actually alive? So cool and calm.
Hansen- solid forechecker, reasonable skill and a damm fine skater, rarely if, ever takes a shift off.

He is starting to be a favorite of mine
Might not have the points to show his hard work (4 = 1 goal/3 assists) but he is working hard.
I get to listen to a lot of Radio1040 games (always on the go here) and more often than not, his name is the one that keeps coming back by the commentator. Looking at his ice time he's not always there on the ice but he always seems to make the plays and the right ones and his name sure is used a lot.
Anyway .... I am liking Tanev and he's impressed me so far
Hansen, Higgins, and our first line ... man do I love waching the Sedins & Burr
Never been a Raymond fan but he has also been a surprise, I hope he keeps it up.
GO CANUCKS GO

Raymond - Quieting the haters with an excellent year. Improved shot, strong on his skates, speed, he can pass , plays solid 2 way game.
Hansen - Hansen just does. He has been my favorite player sometime. Always on, physical, and just goes about his business.
Higgins - Probably the most under rated player on the team.
Sedins - Slow start but have looked like themselves again, need to get that PP back on track. It all goes through them

The Sedins and Burrows aren't really fair to include in the discussion imo - their ozone starts are entirely warranted, but also give them tremendous numbers.
If you go by underlying numbers it's a bit surprising - and I'll highlight a few of the less touted (Tanev aside).
Based only on the seven games he's been back, Booth has standout numbers. He's a +25.6 relative corsi, while getting only 45.3% offensive zone starts and managing 58.2% offensive zone finishes - quite impressive actually. He has backchecked very well, been strong on the boards in his own end and quick to move the puck, but his numbers are still surprising.
Tanev is also a +8.3 relative corsi with 49.3 % offensive zone starts and 57.6% finishes.
Neither of these guys have faced above average competition, but nevertheless are strong cases.
Ballard is a +3.1 with only 47.9% offensive zone starts - again, not the strongest competition.
Kassian is doing well - he's had only 47% offensive zone starts but has a positive relative corsi (+1) and has faced a strong quality of competition - he's actually 9th strongest on the club in each of these categories.
Tough to choose really.
Quality by committee.
Play a team game, win games.

I think H. Sedin and D. Sedin have been the most consistent and point-producing duos.
Posted 07 March 2013 - 04:16 PM
Based on absolutely nothing statistical at all, I just like him.

def not sedins, they've been pretty lazy defensively but I guess that's what majority o-zone starts do to you. Horrible play by Henrik last game on the powerplay last game that gave up the SHG

2. Hansen - plays physical and looks dangerous with his speed.
