some points:
  • he has enough offensive potential to be in the top 6
  • hes too small to be in the bottom six
  • van already has sedin and kesler as the top centers
  • if he cant convert to the wing then he most likely be traded
i like the guy as a player, seems to be a pretty hard worker. over the years he has really improved the defensive side of his game. but hes just too small to be in the bottom six, and the only way i see him van long term is if he can convert to the wing and play on the second line with kesler. do you guys think Jordan can successfully convert to the wing?

one important thing to note, he has a one way contract so he cant be sent up and down to utica, other wise he'll go on waivers

the answer is short.

Yes.

Jensen will play a full season in the AHL barring call ups and we have the following for third and forth line C

Richardson
Lain
Santorelli
Gaunce
Horvat

And like the or four other big bodied guys more well suited to 3rd and 4th line duties.

We need a play maker for booth and Kesler and we have one on a one way contract that has only gotten better every year he's played.

Play him where he belongs or lose him to waiver or injury. Your call.

But he's the answer to our needs and frees up a spot on a crowded and skilled bottom 6.

He's out for 6 months (which will hinder his development) and he really needs that development. There's already worries that he won't translate to the NHL and he'll end up a huge ass bust.

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Burrows - Kesler - Schroeder
Higgins - Gaunce - Hansen
Booth - Richardson - Weise

I think those lines look pretty solid, on paper at least.

Kesler takes draws then moves to the wing afterwards Jr plays up the middle where he is comfortable. Booth jr kes. Booth crashes the net after kes takes the shot

Booth/Schroeder/Burrows - secondary scoring 14 minutes
Higgins/Kesler/Hansen - shutdown line 20 minutes
Sestito/Richardson/Weise - energy line 7 minutes

Schroeder is going to have to be versatile..long term at center on the Canucks may not be an option...I'd like to see him on an all American line with Kes and Booth this season.

No. The Canucks aren't even in the same realm as these other teams. They aren't even close to being good enough to make the playoffs. They'll be off by around 10 points.

Can't remember, but someone who's actually watched or follow these kids, maybe they can back this up. Schroeder and Hodgson both got time as wingers down in the AHL, but both struggled. Sure, you can make it sound easy but it's harder than you actually think.

LOL sounds about right to me. Schroeder might be able to play wing but I think he is more suited for up the middle then along the boards where he'll get rubbed out due to size differences

Kesler is actually a capable playmaker himself if he'll just start passing the puck again. In 09/10 he had 50 assists and everybody on that second line had a career year.

I'm really liking this option as the way to go for our preseason, just maybe substitute Tostito with Archibald

I'm pretty sure Horvat and Gaunce will spend another year in junior. The Sedins were the last two players to make the team that couldn't be sent to the farm team if they struggled.

Yeah I know I want them to go back to junior, but stranger things have happened and with the recent injury history with the Canucks you just never know.

You start every season expecting or planning to make the CUP finals. Sounds good but what is the Vancouver reality. It makes a difference especially for players that the team could spend more time on like Schroeder. I agree that on a CUP contending team he has to play a top 6 role but it is not proven yet whether he can play that role or not. He might be that play maker that Kesler appears to need which means a wing position. If Booth cannot start the season it might be an opportunity to try it. I like the idea of a Burrows-Kesler-Schroeder line as an experiment. Unless Schroeder shows a marked improvement in the FO circle this season it might mean dealing him.

HE WAS TRIED ON THE WING FOR MORE THAN ONE STINT. IT WAS A FAILURE EVERY TIME. WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP BRINGING THIS UP AS AN OPTION.

Or he actually doesn't play wing, just lines up there while Kes takes faceoffs and then they switch. If you don't like a thread, feel free to remove yourself from it.

Kesler is actually a capable playmaker himself if he'll just start passing the puck again. In 09/10 he had 50 assists and everybody on that second line had a career year.

He's not bad, but Schroeder's better and it'd allow Kesler to utilize his shot. Kesler/Booth hasn't exactly generated fantastic chemistry, where I think having someone like Schroeder with them (or with Kesler/Burrows more likely) would free them up to worry about the rest of their game.

I like the idea of Schroeder on the 2nd line wing; he has speed, is probably our best playmaker after the Sedins and we've long wished for someone to compliment the shoot first style of the others that have been on our second line.

So who would you move for Schroeder to play ahead of: Burrows? Booth? Daniel? Higgins? Kassian? Hansen?

Schroeder barely earned a top six spot in the AHL, how do you justify giving him a spot with the Canucks?

4 million bucks a year for a fourth liner - Booth - so that Schroeder can play second line?

no. Schroeder is a center not a wing. If we are putting a prospect on wing we should be playing Jensen who is a natural winger.

Sedin Sedin Kassian
Booth Kesler Jensen
Higgins Schroeder Burrows
Weise Richardson Hansen

I don't want to hear anything about Hansen not being a fourth line player because he is a 3rd or 4th line player and since our team is blessed enough with depth then we can play him on the fourth line and have a fourth line we can finally play and trust.

It would be more of a defensive line to be Hansen Schroeder Burrows but can Hansen play LW? I don't know honestly.

Burrows, Guance/Horvat/Richardson, Hanssen (excellent checking and decent scoring)
Hiigins, Richardson/Sant, Weise
