Let me present to you the "normal" lineup if everyone was healthy.
Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Raymond - Kesler - Samuelsson
Higgins - Malhotra - Hansen
Torres - Lapierre - Oreskovich
Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Ehrhoff
Ballard - Salo
Also, for what it's worth, Dan Hamhuis is pretty underrated. I was hoping that after this playoff run people would acknowledge how good he is on the back end but unfortunately he got injured. That was the biggest loss we took.
Why did Hammer have to hip check himself out of the series ;_;
No doubt about Hamhuis... He's awesome... He plays like a complete Wizniewski would, and he brings it WAY more often than not. I wanted the Habs to draft him (we picked Komisarek) something tells me we would have fared better (In the fact that Hamhuis can actually play solid hockey.
This all being said, it will ALWAYS be circumstancial and hypotheticals... I think that it would be close, and it would have gotten close to game 7... I also think the mood would be a bit more 'chipper' lol
Would we win? It doesnt even matter... All I want today is for the Vancouver Canucks to win. Bring it on home boys
