kesler is not playing wing when our center depth is Henrik, Kesler,Lapierre,Schroeder,Ebbet. Higgins shouldn't be playing center if we have a healthy lineup, Kassian isn't playing ahead of Hansen, Raymond won't be on the 4th line. Jensen will play less than 5 games (we aren't burning a year on his contract for this shortened season)
I initially chose the lines as how they would play alongside one another. Kassian and Jensen on the same line with a decent passer (I know it shouldn't be Higgins but it's all we have.) Although Hansen should play ahead of Kassian he would be behind in this rotation. I'm speaking more on terms of a team that moves the puck well and can finish. Hansen is a more of a run and gun kind of guy. He's putting up points which is solid, but if the whole team was to be solid and the depth was there I'd have three lines with more talent than grit.Not saying the fourth line wouldn't have talent, they do. But a shoot first guy like Jensen and a big body which can control the puck and get in-front of the net, being Kassian, and of course a REAL centre this would look like an ideal line to me.
