Just get him some snipers and its all good, Ebbett cannot get the job done with Roy on his line, Higgins and Hansen/Raymond would be a pretty sweet third line.

If he chipped it out off the boards instead of playing it thru mid ice at our blueline he would be pretty much flawless as a player here.

Roy > Hodgson from a season ago. Thanks to this move, we have a far better, deeper forward group going into the playoffs than in 2011. Assuming everyone but Booth is healthy for Game 1...

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows (slightly worse than the 2011 run)
Higgins - Kesler - Hansen (better, more physical than Raymond and Samuelsson in 2011)
Raymond - Roy - Kassian (far more offence than Torres, Hansen and Malhotra/Hodgson)
Weise - Lapierre - Sestito/Ebbett (not much of an improvement over Glass/Bolduc)

Throw Booth into the mix around Round 2 and thats an even deeper squad.

I would keep Higgins and Roy together as they have shown great chemistry. Roy has even commented that himself when he said something along the lines of "I don't know what Higgins is doing out there but it seems like he's open every time I look up"

That being said
Sedin Sedin Burrows- Scoring line
Raymond Kesler Hansen - Use as shutdown line against other team's top line- Challenge line to be a + line in this role
Higgins Roy Kassian- Another solid 2 way scoring line
Weise Lapierre Ebett/Sestito- 4th line.
