Demolition Dangler Posted April 20, 2015 Share Posted April 20, 2015 Yup, I said it finally. I thought this year would be different because of new faces in the organization. Nope. Look at the Sedins... They could end up playing worse in the playoffs than the previous 2 playoffs against the Sharks and Kings. 1 point in 3 games each. Look at the second line. We don't really have a second line. The loss of Kesler was significant and it showed. Lineup shuffling has to be done, and Horvat must be given more minutes and a bigger offensive role. Bonino and Higgins should be demoted to the third line. That's where they would be most effective. Call up Sven Baertschi. Having the chip on his shoulder would fuel the Canucks lineup to punish the Flames. He would be able to provide more offense to the top 6 as well. Play Vrbata with the sedins. Second line should be Baertschi Horvat Burrows. Third line should be Richardson Bonino Higgins and fourth line should be Kenins matthias and Hansen. Making these moves may increase our chances in this 7 game series. But after the way we played in game 1 and 3, our chances are slim. I predict the canucks to get pummeled by the Flames in the next 2 games straight. We WILL lose this series 1-4, just like the way we lost to the Kings. The veterans will NEVER carry this team to stanley cup contention again after the one time in 2011. Young guns are the future, and they will carry us. CHANGE IS COMING.
