Lapierre should get a turn with the Sedins

Recommended Posts

Yes, I know he's a centre, but we've seen Roy play on the wing despite specifically being acquired to play centre. And the team had its best game recently so keep that lineup, but this is in case of injuries.

Lapierre's been a better player during the playoffs than the regular season. The Sedins can generate scoring chance with anybody, and they need players that can bury these chances.

For example, Kassian has played with everyone in our lineup, and he's been average to terrible with anyone but the Sedins.

Lapierre has a very good shootout record (6/11 career, 3/4 in his last four), which makes me think he could do a decent job at burying chances. He agitates, he's physical, and he can be clutch. He's at least worth a look with the Sedins in the future.

Yeah, no thanks. We need him in the bottom 6 and we already have a couple of guys who can play there.

Maybe if it was earlier in the season, but not enough time now to develop chemistry. He is one of our best Centers so we need him to play that role, and he looked great last game with Hansen and Raymond.

Might be a nice idea to reward him for his good play but ONLY if Roy moves back down to the 3rd line. Ebbet isn't good enough to be in our lineup, let alone as the 3rd line center.
