[Proposal] Van-Fla & Van-Phx

Recommended Posts

To Vancouver : Mike Weaver, Shawn Matthias

To Florida: Mason Raymond & 3rd round pick

To Vancouver : Raffi Torres, Boyd Gordon

To Phoenix: 4th round pick, prospect

Keith Ballard dump for 4th/5th or better.













(same D)

I think our first line should stay intact as they have the most chemistry and have proven the ability to score. The second like of Kesler-Roy-Raymond I like as we have 2 centers that can taken face offs and compliment each other playmaker-sniper and Raymond a sniper with pure speed. Gilman has stated he wants to have Roy as his 3rd line center but then that would leave Kesler without a playmaker and will lead to him trying to do too much on his own. The third line center slot would be filled with Matthias a good defensive forward that has 17 goals this season which is tops on our team and or Gordon which has less offensive numbers but better faceoff stats at 58.5% 6th best in the league. Two defensively talented wingers in Hansen,Higgins. A solid fourth line that can eat minutes and can skate in Kassian,Lapierriere, Torres. We would have 4 centers for depth down the middle and four lines that can skate and contribute offensively. The top 2 pairings on D stay intact but Tanev would have a defensive RHD allowing him to get involved more offensively helping him to develop better.
