Doesn't sound like Nonis or Gillis. Neither one have done anything major at the deadline in their history as Vancouver GMs.

You mean like Burrows. No one can doubt that they have great chemistry together. They didn't have a long run at it last year, but it was certainly fun when they were. Absolutely doesn't need to be a prototypical power forward.

The major problem with the Raymond-Kesler-Samuelsson line is that Kesler is consistently good when Raymond and Samuelsson are incredibly streaky. And when they (Raymond and Samuelsson) are on a bad streak, it is horrible to watch. And when they are on good streaks, it's almost never at the same time.

Kesler needs at least 1 guy on that line who is consistently good. Doesn't even need to be great. Just good, but consistent at it. And Sturm is not.
