I think that's being a little too easy on the twins. They see tough checking, they're always going to see tough checking, they need to figure out how to produce regardless. Burrows is going to be valuable anywhere you put him in the lineup, I'd like to see someone else play with the twins. That's a discussion for another thread.

So long as uh, half our roster doesn't get injured like in 2011 and we don't go into the playoffs with AV with his head way up his ass we should be good relative to other teams.
Lapierre had 5 points in 25 playoff games, he just isn't good enough offensively for that line to produce consistently imo.

I'd rather see Kassian get a shot in the top 6 than trade for Hemsky.
