as far as vancouvers lines.. as far as i know the sedins are playing as well as samuelsson and luongo
Do you really think a couple of games is going to give you a good idea of how effective Ryan could be on the 2nd line? Because I don't.

You get to see all the good and the bad Blake brings on that line over the course of an entire season, so it's easy to put things in perspective. But over the course of a couple of games you get none of that. The sample size is way too small.
