I agree. If we weren't short on solid centers right now, Schroeder would ideally be playing with Burrows and Hansen, rather than two guys with tunnel-vision and zero awareness of anything besides what they themselves are doing in Raymond and Weise.

I think we should be looking at

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Higgins - Kesler - Booth
Burrows - Schroeder - Hansen
Raymond - Lapierre - Weise

when everyone's healthy, personally. Those are four damn good lines. I would also like to see Burrows - Kesler - Hansen, but the third line becomes really messy after that.

I still like the idea of Raymond on the 4th line because he's a very effective player on his own without any help, but prevents his teammates from being able to do much. On a fourth line without alot of offensive ability, it's a huge boost.

That's only when everyone looks up to speed, though (right now Raymond's outplaying a whole bunch of guys)

On a side note, after watching the two of them play, I feel like Schroeder and Grabner (with Kesler?) probably would have ended up being a match made in heaven.
