Just so you know it would change nothing. Other teams would still focus primarily on shtting down sedins therefor even on "2nd line" they still are actually 1st line.

actually, I'm trying to discuss the idea of putting the twins on the second line.....why not?

The number one reason is no matter what number you assign the line, if the teams best two players are on it, that is your number one line. I think you are trolling so i will leave it at that.

Kassian - Schroeder - Jensen
Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Booth - Higgins - Kesler

Point I am making is: Why do the twins deserve first-line duties? Don't other teams put young offense-minded talent on their first line?

Is this a joke?

"What players need is the right kind of strength and power. That includes learning to understand that leverage and positioning can be just as important as raw strength when it comes to winning battles in the game. It's more about timing and athleticism --and avoiding injury--than it is about how much you can bench press. I don't know how many times I've seen a guy with the physique of a defensive end line up a guy half his size, only to bounce off when he connects. Sure, there is room in the game for big guys who can throw their weight around. But for the most part, players are smart enough to see them coming--and strong enough to protect the puck when they arrive. There are trainers out there who know how to devlop hockey-specific strength--though a trainer can help only if a player follows the program. All too often, I've seen players sign up with the best trainer, but not show up for their workouts and never to reap the benefits."

Yes I totally agree, demote the top point getters to the second line putting Kassian and two completely nhl inexperienced players on our first line is a great idea that will surely make our team player better.

I haven't been a supporter of the Canucks for long. Mainly because firstly I know nothing about NHL and secondly ESPN America only started showing NHL 3 years ago.
