New line combinations from #CanucksNHL_Team_2022_Vancouver_reprogram.png practice according to jersey colours:
 
Mikheyev-Horvat-Miller
Höglander-Pettersson-Podkolzin
Kuzmenko-Åman-Garland
Pearson-Lazar-Joshua
Boeser
 
Miller taken out of centre. 
What about a Russian 3rd line?
Aman's name even has a halo.

I like Pearson where he is in this line combo.

 

I guess this is the attempt to get back to a more defensive 3rd line that has a bit of scoring potential. Åman and Garland could be a neat pair, might be something there.

 

I'd prefer to see Kuzemnko in Hogie's spot tho.

So Boes is out?  I missed that.

Maintenance day or??

kuzmenko is a playmaker and mikheyev is a good checker. seems like they should be changed.

but i guess you try everything to find the right result. it will probably never happen but i think the best move would be to sit miller for a game. boeser too.

I'd probably have Bo and Aman swapped.

 

Mikayev, Aman, Miller = grinder line

 

Kuz, Bo, Garland = scoring line.

Every line should have a checker, a playmaker, and, and a shooter IMO. That seems like what they’re going for.

 

The checker gets the puck free for the playmaker who sets up the shooter. Straightforward simple hockey.

Boesers 6.65 is straight up terrible my gawd. I hope the casual assist collecting he does is able to drive his value enough to just dump that contract for free. Maybe Seattle pays for him lol

 

Soooo much committed to wingers it's wild 

Boeser needs a change of scenery. He’s young enough to still be attractive for a rebuilding squad.

 

send him to Chicago or Detroit

Aman was the only player in the young stars tourney that I noticed.  He was just sound.  A few risky offensive plays, but those mess ups were countered by his excellent defensive play.
I think that kid has a great upside.  Especially if he's around petey, podz and hog.  He can probably elevate his game beyond 3rd line.

Detroit wouldn’t be dumb enough to spend that much on such a slow, one dimensional player. It’s going to take a real stupid GM to get rid of him with that contract.
