Prust-Dorsett Nickname Coined: Vancouver P.D. Thoughts?


Recommended Posts

I'll be intrigued to see if they're on the same line or whether WD wants to split them up to give our kids more support and "mentorship" in the bottom-6. They're both going to be good character mentor-type guys for our bottom-6, while we've got great top-6 mentors like the Sedins, Burrows and Higgins.

Benning and WD have talked a lot about letting kids play with veterans who will groom and mentor them best. If that's really what they want out of a lineup, I'd go with something like this:

Sedin - Sedin - Virtanen (not going to happen, but he'd learn a lot from the twins)

Baertschi - Sutter - Vbrata (Vbrata and Baertschi had instant chemistry last season and would be the perfect role model for the kid, they play almost an identical game)

Shinkaruk - Horvat - Burrows (Shinkaruk is essentially a mini-Burrows and he'd be the perfect mentor for the kid, plus all 3 are relatively clutch scorers)

Higgins - Vey - Dorsett (Higgins is a great 2-way player who I think Vey would learn a lot from, and Dorsett can be our tough guy. We don't need 2 any one game)



I know Virtanen and Shinkaruk aren't going to make the lineup next season, but if you want to be in a transition phase that's one way to do it. Sedins-Virtanen, Baertschi-Vbrata, Shinkaruk-Burrows, Vey-Higgins are the best kid-mentor tandems we can form.
