Sedins are dominating the 3rd period. With Daniel back, it puts everyone back into their rightful place.
Lapierre just had one of his epic forechecking shifts. He can be invisible for most of the game, but he still manages to pull out one of those epic forechecking shifts - usually in the 3rd - that makes you think he should be a better player than he is.
It's the way the team is built. The team is built around the two of them, meaning they are surrounded by two way players who aren't particularly skilled by themselves but are good at all the little things allowing them to take advantage the defensive openings created by two players as skilled, especially together, as the twins.
You have guys like Lapierre and Burrows who are basically grinders by themselves, but good enough offensively that they will be able to take advantage when so much effort is focused on the Sedins. When you have Henrik Sedin just feeding passes to them, it's not going to be very effective, when you have two Sedins, everything changes.
I'd play Bobrovsky from now on. It's maybe a bit risky (and looks a bit dumb and lowers the value of Bryz)... but atleast Bob has a higher ceiling than Bryz at the moment. Bryzgalov has been absolutely horrendous the whole season.
If you'd be able to build a mega-deal, that would eventually mean trading Price....but getting Schneider and other players....would you consider it? And I know...it might depends on who the other players are, but just the idea of getting rid of Price who is more proven for a Scheneider who is full of promise....Too risky? Or worth the risk mainly if a top prospect and a top pick are coming back? Mind you, the only interesting prospect right now for the Nucks is Nick Jensen.
