Bruce Boudreau Posted April 7, 2015 Share Posted April 7, 2015 Right now I think the Canucks are solid on all three forward lines except the Matthias line which has no real chemistry or identity. On d and in goal provided Miller is back come playoff time (even if only to back up) means the roster is playoff ready. I feel like without real skill or some grit guys with skill like Richardson and Kassian Matthias becomes way less effective out on the ice sure he is still skating and chips on the pk and some face off draws here and there. But he is an 18 goal scorer that needs some skill if you want 3 scoring lines that can threaten other teams in the playoffs. Either turn the line into a depth scoring line with Baertschi,Matthias, and Vey or make it a grind line with Richardson and Kassian if they are healthy come playoff time. Whatever the case that friggin line needs an identity!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
