Burrows can play either side without issue.

I believe Lapierre only plays the left wing when he's not at center and if I'm not mistaken Kassian (like Hansen) has only ever played the right wing.
I seem to recall something similar to a Hansen - Wellwood - Bernier line that was formed at some point where he played left wing. He's definitely played booth sides before, and well.

It must have been

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Raymond - Kesler - Samuelsson
Hansen - Wellwood - Bernier

when Demitra went down

Actually, that's pretty strange that I remember it that way, because wasn't Bernier originally a left winger?
