MG talked about money-ball players and that's what we have with this roster.
We have a ridiculous amount of guys who are solid 2 way players in
Burrows Kesler Hansen, Higgins, Lappiere, Raymond, Roy
The only guys with questionable defense are Kassian, Sestito, Pinzzo
I think if AV coaches this team properly, he should aim for 2-1 wins and play a solid defensive system.
I dont think its unreasonable to hope that Kesler's line is used as a a checking line against the opposition's top line.
Kes beat Toews line in our cup run. As long as his line outscores the opposition's top line and the
Sedins outscore the opposition's checking line then we can hope that Roy's Line and Lappy's line keeps the other team neutralized or give us a slight advantage.
Do I have rose colored glasses on?
I think this team actually suits AV's style much better than our teams of the past.
In terms of defence, Hamhuis, Bieksa, Garrison, Edler, Tanev and Ballard is a solid top 6
2 great goalies...
timie to grind out some wins in the playoffs
