Does anyone agree with my line proposal?

Daniel Henrik Zack

Higgins - Kesler - Roy

Raymond - Burrows - Hansen (Burrows is actually a 45% faceoff person which isn't bad for natural winger. Great checking line with speed.

Booth - Lapierre - Weise

Was yelling this when they put roy on the wing the other week.

Roy distributes the puck so much better, and kesler was hitting machine and excellent along the boards.

You know kesler might not accept it though. Thought max who i have criticized this year played very well on the 3rd.

Best second line in the NHL. With Roy, we now have 4 players hovering around the point-per-game mark. I'd much rather have 4 players scoring at a 70 point pace than 2 players (Malkin and Crosby) scoring at a 100 point pace. Depth wins playoff games.

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian

Higgins - Kesler - Roy

Raymond - Burrows - Hansen

Weise - Lapierre - Sestito

Hamhuis - Bieksa

Edler - Corrado

Garrison - Alberts

That's a very physical, playoff-ready defence.

Higgins and Roy are deadly together. And that sounds like a brand name ... "Higgins and Roy"

Yes I agree. The main reason I'm content going forward with this is because Lapierre will undoubtedly become a monster in the playoffs, capable of holding down the third line role.

As long as Ebbett isn't the 3rd line centre. He was dreadful again tonight.

So what happens when Booth comes back? Third? First with Sedins? Press box?

Eh, only if Schroeder replaces Ebbett. I do like Roy's chemistry with the two Yanks though.

IMO we should either try to reunite the "speed line" (Raymond-Schroeder-Hansen), or call up Lain as use Lappy as 3C and Lain on fourth. Although apparently the Canucks hit the callup limit, not sure if that applies once the AHL team is out of the playoffs as Calgary called up like 5 guys today

But but but that means.... using Ebbett....as a center....

And Ebbett is sooooo "scary".....

Anyhow....don't worry - AV's on it.
