Raymond - Kesler - Kassian
Higgins - Schroeder - Hansen
Volpatti - Lapierre - Weise

Higgins and Raymond may switch places, but I think that with the way Raymond is playing, a healthy Kes on his line would be even better than Shredder. That third line is still greased lightning with offensive abilities.

Ebbett goes down once booth returns.

I agree that Raymond is out-playing Higgins, but I love the idea of keeping the Speedy Raymond, Shroeder, Hansen lines together.

Build that chemistry which is already off to a decent start! (Some people seem to think it just 'happens'.)

I agree with this. I think that Raymond has far better chemistry with Schroeder than with RK17.

Raymond has played extremely well with Schroeder and his chemistry with Kesler has always been abysmal, unlike Higgins. Why break up what is actually working?

That lack of chemistry you speak of between Kesler and Raymond was when neither of them were healthy. The last time these two were healthy and played together, they were great. With Raymond's speed and passing game at it's current level, I think he and Kes can find some of that old magic that saw Raymond net 53 points. If it doesn't work then just switch MayRay with Higgins.

They are moving Higgins around because he is the odd man out. He will play on the second line because booth isnt there. Then he has no spot at all.

The only option AV has at that point is to keep Higgins on the second line with Booth and Kesler and dump Kassian down to the 4th line but I dont like it. Kassian is a much more valuable player than that now and its just a waste to have him grinding because of his size so that Higgins can get juicy minutes.

Bumping this thread now that Booth looks not to far away. Who is sent down?

Ebbett is at the bottom of the depth chart at the mo, but he's center. Dose Volpatti get sent down since he is being replaced by a wing? Schroeder doesn't need to clear waivers.

IMO I don't see why a team with such strong forward depth and 3 solid D pairings needs the 2 extra D men. Easiest to send Barker down and bring up D if needed, but AV seems to feel different about it.

What are yall thinking?

Schroeder stays, center depth is needed.

Likely Ebbett or Barker.

^ Agreed. Higgins-Lapierre-Weise could pretty much be another checking line.

Sucks that Malhotra is done, or else we could do some experimenting...

Sedin - Sedin - Kesler
Burr - Schroeder - Booth
Higgins - Lappy - Raymond
Weise - Malhotra - Kassian
The Honeybadger

Just to see what would happen, not saying I would go with this long-term, but it would be a nice shake-up.

Guilty as charged.

Sad part is that he's one of my favorites and I completely forgot about him.

Wouldn't the Honey Badger goes in before Weise?
Or are you on the "Dutch Gretzky" bandwagon?

Hansen as a healthy scratch..

He should never even be on the 4th line, IMO.
