Lets talk about the bottom 6

The team needs a better bottom 6 definitely. I like Higgins but the guy isn't a 2nd liner. He's good for the 3rd or 4th.

Guys like Weise and Sestito are invisible out there. Ebbett is okay for depth but he is in no way an NHLer.

Kassian should stick with the twins.

The team needs a true 2nd line so players from the bottom 6 don't have to act like they can compete with the best 2nd lines.

This team needs a good centreman. Something like a 2011 Malhotra.

Hansen, he was solid.

So let's get this straight. A guy who works his butt off, comes back off a spinal injury, is constantly demoted to play with duds gets 11 points in the last 3 playoffs (33 games) is the guy you want gone.

But

Hansen who has remained fit and is constantly promoted to second and even first gets 10 points in 3 playoffs (34 games) is solid

Way to let favouritism get in the way of reality.

Need a guy like torres on the bottom 6 and legit goal scorers/sniper on top 6. Enough of third liners pretending to be 2nd liners to play with kesler.

trade higgins. Likeable guy but only good in regular season. Been a while since this guy even scored in the playoffs.

Do not re-sign raymond, roy.

Need to really revamped this roster.

and trade up at the draft!

We need a legitimate 3rd line centre. Someone who is above average defensively and can win faceoffs but can also chip in 30-40 points a season. Basically a combination of Malhotra and Roy. All the top teams have one. Chicago has Bolland, LA has Stoll... Martin Hanzal is the first player that comes to mind in terms of players that could be available. He's 6'6 and only 26. If the Canucks can somehow pry him and Doan out of Pheonix....

The problem is not only the bottom 6.

The team realistically has no elite wingers outside of 2: Burrows and Daniel. NONE.

That means our SECOND line is also in shambles aside from Kesler. A 1 line team with a 2nd line C is not going to go far.

I don't care what anyone says, our wingers are NOT good enough to be labelled 2nd line guys.
