I agree, if the twins are brought back. The Sedins and Burrows formed one of the top even strength lines in the NHL. They were dominant 5 on 5.

In a salary cap world you often need at least one cheap forward on each of your top 2 lines. You just can't afford to have 6 high priced offensive players in the lineup, especially with a $7mil goalie.

If Burrows doesn't play well in that role give Kesler a shot. Unlike in the past I think Kesler could step in and really excel alongside the twins.
