Higgins has been playing as a winger for 99% of his tenure with the Canucks, the majority being our 2nd line LW/RW.

Canucks have Hank, Schroeder, Lappy, and Manny at C. Kesler on the IR until December. Raymond also played a few games as the #3C 2 seasons ago.

JVR has never surpassed 40 points, at the very least Raymond has hit 50 points once. Raymond and JVR had similar production coming off major injuries.

Hansen is on the 3rd line because of depth, if we didn't have better top 6 options he would play there. During injuries/slumps Hansen regularly plays in the top 6.
