I get the theory, just so far I think that 3rd line is too hemmed in to drive play. What I'm hoping for his we see them either have a big breakout night where it comes together or the experiment ends before we break Brock. 

Maybe Brock is happy, because his team is winning?

i don’t remember his name but i remember the canucks bringing in a goal scorer to play on a line with sedins. i remember he would always set up and wait for them to get the puck to him. this might be different, but the sedins asked for him to be taken off their line. they wanted to play their game and needed a burrows type linemate. i see boes as someone that needs to get passed to, in his favourite spot to be a goal scorer. i think green wants him to be a complete player that can be successful in other situations. i could be wrong.

that wold be fine except Gaudette and Rousel don't seem to pass to him and that is the problem

nope not with Gaudette and Rousell just passing to each other.  put  Sutter on that line and maybe it would work

Sutter isn’t a play driver.  Bess is an excellent passer.  He has elite offensive IQ too, so sees the game really well.  Gaud and Rooster work their guts out, but don’t have great hands or offensive instincts.  It’s Bess’s job to drive that line offensively.

I remember Scottie Bowman playing Federov on Defense for some time to help him with his 200 ft. game.  This is a good thing for Brock and if playing on the third line breaks him, he shouldn't be in the NHL.  I don't think Brock is that fragile as he has had to deal with  a lot of tough stuff and is much more mature than that.  I do agree he needs to work on his skating.  Sometimes he does look slow out there.

I’ve seen many goal scorer disappear in the playoffs but have a solid d core setup with Hughes and Parayko sounds nasty but it would still be a hard choice but all in all they’re 2 great players. 
 

On another note you actually think brock best year are already happening? I’m sure he will progress and become a better goal scorer. Not many players peak like Selanne in his first year

Yeah, again, I'm in no hurry to move Boeser out either but a legit top pairing D in exchange is nothing to sneeze at either. And STL isn't far from Minnesota...and STL might need to clear cap to re-sign Pet... just saying.

 

Heck COL's not far from Minny either... Boeser for Byram +....I'd sure think about it anyway :lol:

Burnaby Joe wouldn't help us even if it helped him. 

 

Man that would be such a divisive trade. TSN 1040 might need to hire new staff.

In theory, Boeser would be a pretty sizable upgrade to their top 6 W over say Nichushkin. They have the cap space and presumably are pushing for a solid playoff run (which Boeser would help with a lot more than Byram will playing on the Giants) ...just saying.

 

On our end, it would certainly go a long way to alleviating any cap concerns we have over the next couple years with Byram on an ELC vs Boeser's near $6m, makes room for returning Ferland/Leivo this year (both of whom are probably a better fit on the third line). We also add a likely future 1st pair D to play with Hughes, who's from BC and playing on the local Junior team (and I'd imagine a pick or other asset given Boeser's current value presently outweighs his).

 

Future D:

 

Byram, Hughes

Juolevi, Woo

Rathbone, Tryamkin

 

Brisebois, Chatfield

 

Maybe Rafferty in there for someone assuming he translates.

COL does have the d depth as well. But still, I think i'd have to avoid any Canucks media for a goodly stretch if something like that happened.

Byram would take a BB to get.  You can't get quality with out giving something of value back.  I don't want to trade BB but it would take something big to get Byram.

still wouldn't trade Boeser, he is part of our team, I know lets trade Jake! kind of dumb hey,just like trading Boeser who is a big part of our team going forward

I agree with you but if you wanted to get a Byram you would have to give up a guy like Brock or you draft them.:)

I’m with you on not trading Brock, but if Miro heskanen was dangled in front of us.

Boeser has likely been distracted by his Dad's situation all season, so he's slumping, but is still finding ways to contribute.

Green is smart and will do everything he can to get him going.

Once that third line clicks, we will be a tough team to stop in the playoffs.

problem was he wasn't slumping, this season he has been 2nd and 3rd in points on the team until Green moved him

Virtanen's playing better with Petey and Miller.

I wouldn't say better,  Boeser played very well with Petey and Miller,  that line was first in the nhl at one time this season,
