We need a consistent top line to carry us into the playoffs in a short season. We can't afford to mess around with the Sedin line and miss the playoffs because of it.
Booth Schroeder Hansen
Booth needs a player like Schroeder. A player who will put the puck on his stick so he can take and fire. Hansen's offensive game looked a lot better playing in Finland with Barkov while playing solid defensive hockey. He will do the same with Schroeder.
Raymond Lapierre Kassian
We know Lapierre has some offensive talent in there. We also know he's played his best with Kassian (when he's not afraid). This will be a solid physical line with some good offensive abilities all around. This also allows Kassian to be practice being more consistent physically while playing with players who have offensive abilities too.
Higgins Malhotra Weise
This is a solid 4th line and should match up against most in the league. It isn't a contenders 4th line, but we won't have one until Kesler is back.
The best thing about this is that everyone is comfortable where they are (except for Ballard, but I expect him to excel this year), and there is scoring ability everywhere. None of these lines are defensively suspect either.
Aside: Schnieder is going to get hurt in the playoffs and Luongo is going to take us to the Cup.
