24K PureCool Posted April 26, 2015 Share Posted April 26, 2015 Have to wonder if the second line center's already in-house, and if his name's Bo Horvat. At least on paper, it seems like when we have those two roles (2nd C and puck-mover) figured out we should be okay. Of course, if Benny can make changes to add scoring that would be great but I'd be confident. IF we could upgrade on Higgins too I'd do that, but otherwise the bottom 6 looks solid in that they could win their matchups, and if Zack develops, watch out. Sedin - Sedin - Kassian (this line needs a net presence and shooter BADLY) Baertschi - Horvat - Vrbata (if Bo falls flat I hope we move to get another center; Bear should get his shot) Higgins - Bonino - Burr (they did well as the second line this year at times, so they should thrive as the 3rd) Kenins - Richardson - Hansen (decent 4th line IMO, hope Richie stays) MacMillan (he battles pretty well, makes for a decent 13th man) Edler - Tanev (they're the best we've got, not touching this pairing) Hammer - _____ (bye-bye, Juice; hello, big-money, big-minute offensive D-man) ______ - Weber (Yannick's not big but we need his shot; pair him with a giant) Lack/ Miller (no preference as to who starts, both have been good) And Sbisa just dropped off the face of the Earth eh? That is actually a pretty good lineup should Horvat continues or improves his play next year. Of course we also need Kassian to start playing consistently.
