Is Daniel our second best playmaker? (thanks for listening Torts!)

20 November 2013 - 07:41 AM

Obviously Daniel has always been known as the goal scoring twin but we all know his on-ice vision is on par with Henrik....which would make him our second best playmaker. Our second line has no one that is known for their passing ability and I think Daniel could work really well there. Yes I am talking about splitting them up again but it's not a knock on the Sedins but on not having a proper 1st line RW.

Daniel can’t be the only “finisher” on the first line and loading up the top line with Kesler is not good for depth. I think Daniel should be on the second line because we need a playmaker there…because there is a huge difference between Daniel and Kesler in terms of passing and creating chances.

This is what I think the top 6 should look like until we get a proper goal-scoring winger.

Hansen--Henrik--Kesler
Daniel--Santorelli--Burrows/Higgins
