Lapierre should get a turn with the Sedins

41 posts in this topic

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.

Lapierre is one of our best faceoff guys. We already have Burrows/Kassian to play with the Sedins and can produce.

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.

Lappy is not a top line player. I wonder if AV has tried ROY yet....

He's not even a 2nd line player, not sure how he would do on the 1st then. But yeah, keep him in the bottom 6 where he's more effective.

Canucks don't have the depth to replace him in the bottom 6.

Yeah this would probably have been better for earlier in the season.

Lapierre is a good two way centre, but shouldn't be in the top six. He doesn't have the amount of scoring touch to compliment the playmaking and passing of the Sedins.

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.

Considering our centre depth, I'd say bad idea, no time.

He has his worst year as a canuck and now you want to put him on the first line?
