They've said a few times they're putting Roy with Higgins and Hansen.

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

would be my top 4 lines if Booth is healthy come playoff time.

as in' they' you mean Laurence Gilman, yes its true he did say that, but he also mentioned that it would be left up to AV because it is a coaching decision, also that may just be for the time being while Kesler is out,

Also as i stated in the title YOUR 2013 playoff team. I'm just asking other canucks fans opinion on what THEY would like the line up to be

Not bad once our injuries get sorted. We need Kesler and Kassian to step up!

Roy seems like a very good pickup for us.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Chances are I would revise it but that looks pretty good. A fairly balanced approach.

Honey Badger don't care bout no caps lock.

Honey Badger don't give a crap.

EDIT: Me personally, I'd like to see the Schraysen line back and Roy with Kesler...especially if Booth's done for the season.

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
Higgins-Roy-Kesler (Kes takes face-offs though)
Raymond-Schroeder-Hansen
Weise-Lapierre-Kassian

Hamhuis-Garrison
Edler-Bieksa

I probably should have put more emphasis on the little... I was just hinting towards why I broke up our Raymond - schroeder - hansen line putting burrows there because he is unarguably more gritty then Raymond. Also I put Kassian on the first line for the playoffs solely because he is more intimidating then burrows.Kass may not deserve it, but he does provide grit. That's what I was getting it with the grit comment. But I agree that I did not communicate it properly considering the small team we put forward.

Sedin Sedin Burrows
Booth Kesler Raymond
Higgins Roy Hansen
Kassian Lapierre Weise

if no Booth move Hansen up to 2nd line, Kassian to the other side with Roy, Sestito in when size needed. if not then in comes Jensen/Schroeder/Ebbett as required.

“When facism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”-Sinclair Lewis

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."-Albert Einstein

Booth won't be back for a long time and when he is he will more than likely be played conservativly on the fourth line in Sestito's spot

Raymond and Hansen are playing really well together, and I liked Higgins and Kassian together in the games they played. Three lines that'll be a threat to score... hopefully.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Sedin Sedin Kassian
Raymond Kesler Burrows
Higgins Roy Hansen
Sestito Lapierre Weise

Roy is going to step in and make them look like the first line for the next 2 weeks. Twins stumble a bit next 2 games. We call up kassian and slide him back in there, it works like a charm. Mayray and kes come back and kes gets reunited with burr. They start killing it... Weise starts to get his legs and sparks the 4th line like they just got Crosby back. AV rolls 4 lines all the way to the cup. Clean 4 game sweep over the bruins with Lu in net.


Lu for nick bjugstad and two 1st round picks at the draft

i actually really like this roster. while i believe we could have added one more piece, ROY was a great addition.

I'm pretty sure BOOTH will not be healthy come playoff time. and that the team will try to keep KESLER at centre.

so lineup looks something like this:

DANIEL ---- HENRIK ---- BURROWS

RAYMOND --- KESLER --- KASSIAN

HIGGINS --- ROY ---- HANSEN

SESTITO --- LAPPIERRE -- WEISE/PINI



>>>> i would venture to say that this is one of the best 3rd lines in the league <<<

Because we are not tough, I think we should be cheap. and have a good pk. Retaliate when other teams are dirty, by slashing and spearing and being dirty right back. Take the penalties and suspensions but teach everyone else they will get hurt if they mess around. Kind of tounge in cheek, but seriously, if I see one of our players get bobble-headed like a Sedin did against Boston, I'm gonna walk out of the bar and go play street hockey.

Guaranteed more groundhog day w/Twins
Sestito wont even be in the lineup...Dale Wiese ? seen that show before.

Kumbaya Canucks too "classy" for a street fight, instead our stars will get brutalized unanswered into pulp and Nowell Browns PP will go 0-20 and they will be gone in 5 games.

If a Sedin does get gooned again and goes unanswered i will burn my jersey, wrap it on dog feces and put it in the UHAUL with the thousands of other jerseys sure to thrown out and drive them to Aquilinis house myself.





D.Sedin- H.Sedin- Jensen
Burrows- Kesler-Kassian
Higgins-Roy-Hansen
Sestitio-LaPierre-Pinozzotto/Wiese




i think the only way for Gillis and AV to save their jobs will be standout performances by Jensen and Kassian.

those 2 must step up as we didnt add the pieces necessary imo

Going into the playoffs, this team is much better than 2011. Just compare the lines...


2011:
Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Raymond - Kesler - Higgins
Hansen - Lappy - Torres
Oreskovich - Bolduc - Tambellini

Edler - Ehrhoff
Hamhuis - Bieksa
Salo - Rome

Luongo
Schneider

2013:
Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Raymond - Kesler - Kassian
Hansen - Roy - Higgins
Weise - Lappy - Pinnizzotto

Edler - Bieksa
Hamhuis - Garrison
Tanev - Ballard

Schneider
Luongo


This is assuming Sweatt and Jensen are sent down and that Booth stays injured. So much better. Anyone saying this team is worse is dead wrong. This team has a far better future than the first round...
