4th line suggestions


Recommended Posts

Well once Booth and Kes are back then there will be a player shunted down:

Sedin - Sedin - Burr

Booth - Kes - Kass

Hansen -Lapierre - Mayray/Higgins

Malhotra centring 2 of Higgins/Weise/Volpatti/Pinizzotto


Sedin - Sedin - Burr

Booth - Kes - Kass

Hansen - Schroeder - Mayray

Malhotra - Lapierre - Higgins

Malhotra, despite not being as good as before, is important. He is amongst the best in the nhl in faceoffs winning 66.7% (4th of those who've taken more than 20). That cannot be underestimated, he takes 90% defensive draws so our goaltenders know they can freeze the puck and have a good chance of us getting the puck and clearing the zone. A very big part of out PK IMO.

Edit: stats on the NHL were wrong

I honestly think that the Canucks will use Lapierre on the third line in playoffs, so we can have a high energy bottom six rather then just a high energy bottom 3 look for something like this





Higgins-Lapierre- ?

Trade for a big veteran right wing who can score, and poof you could have a 4th line;


Now there's some bite and Higgins has a fabulous motor!

All three can easily move up the line up to cover match ups, when someone's gassed or hurt.
