Hopefully they can get their timing back sooner rather than later. As it stands, Burrows isn't helping the Sedins much at all. I also think having Higgins and Hansen with Lapierre is a bit of a waste at the moment.

Sedin Sedin Burrows
Higgins Schroeder Hansen
Raymond Lapierre Weise

In the meantime I'd try something like this :

Sedin Sedin Kassian
Burrows Higgins Hansen
Raymond Lapierre Weise

As some have mentioned, I wouldn't be opposed to playing a more defensive style while trying to get the timing back. We were way too loose last night, and sadly we don't have the fire power to be playing this way.

I thought Lapierre was the worst player on the ice. He had bad hands before he bulked up. I think he may have made himself completely useless beyond 4th line gooning. They really miss Kesler on the defensive face offs among other aspects. The bottom three lines are a black hole for offense. I agree they should give Schroeder a shot, but I'd replace Lappy.
