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.

Although the lineup looks great, I really want a natural center in that 3C spot. Third lines are so important come playoff time that we need to have an actual centreman in that spot. Looks like Lappy will turn on beast playoff mode, so he can definitely fill that hole.

He played fine and he was on the 4th line today. Lappy had his best game of the season centering the third line and I think it should stay that way. We have much bigger PROBLEMS the ebbett

I know and agree there playing unreal together - but.. they are not the best Second line in the NHL... they haven't even played together enough to consider it..

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

That line played really well together, but I don't like this idea. Keep Higgy with Roy though.

Sedins-Kass
Raymond-Kesler-Burr
Higgy-Roy-Hansen
Pinner-Lappy-Weise

They played well. It's just that a 3 line threat is harder to shut down. I wished for another checking center at the deadline "A la Boyd Gordon", so we could afford to load up the top 6, but hey. Too late now.

Hope they don't throw Schroeder straight into the playoffs without at least the Oilers game to get back into NHL mode.

I'd like to see the ray-Schroeder-Han line as our third but lappy will play huge in the playoffs so?

Who was centering the second line kess or Roy tonight?

Roy but Schroeder should be a insurance policy if we struggle offensively in the playoffs, right now Lappy is more then good on the 3rd line.
