Finally Roy on the Wing!

Recommended Posts

Contrary to popular belief......

#Canucks Kesler staying at centre. AV trying Roy on the wing. Luongo gets the start.

RT @sportsnetmurph: #Canucks Burrows will be back with Sedins tonight. 2nd line Roy-Kesler-Hansen.

#Canucks Derek Roy played LW during #sabres 2006+2007 playoff runs. 34GP 7G 15A. Chris Drury was his centre.

Hopefully it is just for faceoffs , and they switch. Although i do think Roy played on Drury's wing and was quite successful.

Gdt, but anyways...

Im not too sure I like the move. Rather stick with three solid centers down the middle. Hopefully it works...

But I really don't like ebbet as the third dman.

Lets go ROY BABY

I have to say I prefer Roy on the wing than Kesler. Like others also have concerns it diminishes our depth at centre but it's an interesting experiment.

I think AV wants to try different lineup so that he can put them during playoffs... Because its better to try different line up now then in playoffs..anyways I still prefer Roy on third kesler on 2 line centre

I'm excited that our top 6 is stacked, but I think Roy would be the more effective Centre outside the faceoff circle.......I think Kesler just whined and got his way. When asked about his success playing on Sundin's wing he said "maybe that's because I was playing with a Hall-of-Famer" ....That doesn't sound like he's too enthusiastic about playing wing, and it's kinda a slap in the face to Roy, telling him he's not a great Centre........ oh well, at least we're stacked up front

It's my belief that Kesler was to play wing and bitched about it. Himself before the team. No one is that big. Roy at his size is not an ideal candidate to play the wing, he needs open ice rather than working the boards and besides he's not a shooter...Kesler is. Can't say I like this not just the who play centre but for success players need to play where ever the coach wants to make the team better. Seems like dissent has turned up in the locker room

Starting to get down to the wire with all of these line shake ups. I mean, you don't want players trying to figure each other out during the first round. AV makes it really hard for any chemistry to develop between these guys, and once there seems to be some, he changes up all the lines! What the hell.
