Alright hear me out before you start losing your freaking minds.

I have thought for years now that one of biggest problems is that Gillis doesn't pencil payers into the lineup when he is designing the team. This is a nightmare for the coaches. Torts is having just as much of a problem with it as AV. That's why he simply doesn't play the fourth line at all. A team spending to the cap should have servicable players on the 4th line and a second line with NHL goal scorers.

Our top two lines could be so much better. First off we got Burrows playing right wing when he's really a left wing. I will concede he does play well with the Sedins but he doesn't score on his own when he's a second liner. In fact our first line right winger has zero goals 20+ games into the season. Problem?

So our natural right wings are Hansen and Kassian. That's it folks. The problem is they're both 3rd line right wings right now. Kassian has more potential but right now the perfect place for him to play is right wing on the third line. Same position as Hansen. I love Hansen but he's not a second line player. He doesn't instill fear in anyone, he is a hardworker that does most things well. One of the hardest workers in the league.

We invested a lot in Kassian so we should give him a chance to play on the third line where he is best suited, or we should trade him.

Although it would be smart to get of rid Edler for a multitude of reasons I have heard the arguments of why that won't happen.

Therefore, and I hate to say it, we should look into trading Hansen, Tanev, and a first for a top 6 player of proven stock to shore up this team.

Edit: Sorry, many speeling mistakes.

I'd be okay with packaging the 2014 1st and Hansen + for a signed, non rental top 6 sniper.

We don't want to trade forward, we want to trade a defenseman... namely Edler.

Don't mean to be a d1ck here, but Hansen won't fetch you much. He's worth more to our team

If we're going to upgrade on offence, we're going to be trading our prospects.
Sorry, that's what's going to happen.

And honestly, don't be surprised when it happens.

As far as I'm concerned everyone but the Sedins, Bieksa and Luongo can be traded.

I would move a defenceman or two for some top-6 scorers in a heartbeat, but wouldn't be against packaging picks/prospects and Hansen or Burrows for a star up front.

Absolutely. Every team can benefit from a guy like him, he holds value on the ice and has a very nice contract. He's also pretty much the only moveable piece, other than Higgy who holds significantly less value.

Package him with a top prospect, another, or a pick and bring in a beast top sixer.

I'd add Horvat and possibly Hunter into that untouchables, I'd be against seeing Kassian leave as a see his potential as he matures but it's all depending what the other side is offering. Everyone else tho is fair game.

Burrows/Laich.

Two valuable guys to their respective teams. Hung around with the top offensive guys (Sedins, Ovie/Backstrom) for a while, putting up good numbers (50+ pts). Also provide other skills that most players don't provide. Leaders on the team.

Problem? On their own individual skill level, they are 3rd line guys. If Burrows isn't playing or producing with the Sedins, he's an extremely overpaid 3rd line guy.

I hear ya but our hands are kid of tied with 12 NTC's.

It's a situation where Gillis is an idiot and we almost have to get rid of him so Kassian has a spot to play in.

At least he has some value.

That's the same feline thinking that has Gillis holding on to his job by a thread. Obviously you missed the point that we have redundant third line right wing wingers.

As much as your very opinionated and controvera

Yeah that was a horrible contract. We basically told everyone that we're paying you up for what you delivered in the past.

Agreed. Burrows is only worth 3 mill. Double of what his previous contract was. Now he's making Booth money, with the same production as Booth.

Big time. Something needs to change, we've established the coaching was not the issue.. so when will MG wake up and realize this core as it is constructed is not good enough to win a cup.

I agree with the core shakeup, it is time.

Our defense is good but not great. I would look to move someone or 2 from our blueline. We need that one top shutdown dman playing big minutes as well as a great puck moving dman.

Then the offense is pretty clear. Sedins, Kassian and Shink and Bo are untouchables. Everyone else is open season

He had a really bad game tonight. He is just getting back from an injury though! I also thought garrison looked lost and was it just me or in the 3rd period when Higgins was chasing down a puck in the O zone, he kinda looked like he was running on his skates. As for trading Hansen...he gets paid very little $ and is usually a reliable 3rd line guy. I think besides today, he's the least of our problems

Heaven knows we tried to trade that clown. Oh well.

You forgot to add Hamhuis and Garrison . They took discounts to come here as UFAs , we cant trade them.
