LOCK/DISREGARD


John Garret's moustache

Isn't he at 1.3 mill/year?

If he gets a shot with Sedins or Kesler he could hit 50, but playing on the 3rd line he wont. Depends on if AV wants to try him in an offensive role or keep him playing that shutdown 3rd liner with Maholtra that has made him such a popular player with the Canucks and fans. He has the potential, you could see it in the SCF when he got bumped up with the Sedins he was able to find holes in the D to get open simply because he has that extremely quick first step and explosion.

I think that this year Hansen is going to get 50pts or close to it, and maybe see some time with the Sedins throughout the season. This is especially amazing considering he's barley making a million a year! Opinions?

I could see him getting 20 goals before 50 points.

Hopefully he's even more effective this year than last year. Including the playoffs. Tallied two goals early against the Hawks then had one goal for the rest of the run. With all due respect, you need more contribution. Then again you can say that about anyone.

I think playing on the top 2 lines your guaranteed at least 50 points.

Again the question is if he will see top 6 time.

If Hansen makes it in the top 6 some how that bumps one of Sammy/Sturm/Raymond/Hodgson to 3rd line, and I don't think any of those guys would be nearly as effective on the 3rd line as Hansen.

If he can show some finish then yes he can get 50 pts. Playing on the third line plus killing penalties should give him enough chances to get 50 pts. The problem is he has had lots of scoring chances but doesn't finish, that's always been the weakest part of his game. How many times has his speed produced a great scoring chance but he fails to score. If he can up his touch around the net then yes he can get 50 pts.
