How do you win a Stanley Cup?
I asked Trevor Linden that in Penticton, when the young stars were playing the week before NHL training camp opened up.
He said, "Build a playoff team, then get them through the regular season."
Well, the playoffs have been confirmed. Now we see if this team has what it takes.
Here is how the lines will look, heading into the postseason:
Because we do not know when Zack Kassian or Brad Richardson will return, we still need to factor them into the lineup for next week.
1. Sedin - Sedin - Burrows / Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
2. Higgins - Bonino - Vrbata / Matthias - Bonino - Vrbata
3. Dorsett - Richardson - Kassian / Kenins - Horvat - Hansen
highlighted means currently injured
4. Higgins - Horvat - Hansen / Matthias - Vey - Dorsett
Where does Kenins fit in once Richardson and Kassian return. Maybe Kassian and Kenins take turns in and out of the lineup.
On Defence, Alex Edler must be with with Chris Tanev. Edler is at his best when he has a solid stay at home defence partner like Tanev to cover his mistakes.
1. Edler - Tanev
2. Hamhuis -Weber
3. Bieksa - Sbisa
