TheRussianRocket. Posted December 24, 2014 Share Posted December 24, 2014 Talk about a log jam at forward folks. Can't remember the Canucks ever having this much quality depth and options. Remember before the 4th line would be composed of AHLers for the most part and they'd only get a handful of shifts. Props to Benning big time and WD for giving these many weapons. Sestito played great last night but I'd scratch him just because you don't want to take away one of the others chances with Tom instead. Dorsett has been reliable all year long, Vey has looked better and better lately and Matthias has become our staple on the bottom 6. This is what I'd like to see: Dank - Hank - Vrbata Higgins - Bonino - Kassian/Burrows Matthias - Richardson - Hansen/Kassian Dorsett - Horvat - Burrows/Hansen ...Burrows has looked great when slotted with Bo and I like that look so I wouldn't mind giving it a few more games and see where it leads to. Vey & Sestito are the odd men out imo but not as a punishment, just cause the depth. And as good as Vey has looked, he just doesn't fit. As of now, not really up to par to be a top 6er and doesn't have the size and defensive awareness in the bottom 6. Bit of an odd spot for him but he's trying and getting better. Sestito-Dorsett & Vey-Horvat should be the alternate pairs throughout the year unless injuries occur with Bo & Derek getting most of the games.
