I've always been a fan of 3 scoring lines

Sedin-Sedin-Kassian
Burrows-Kesler-*trade*
Raymond-Schroeder-Hansen
Sestito-Lapierre-Weise

Slot in Higgins wherever there is an injury. Which is inevitable at this time of year.

Higgins will replace Sestito no way he will out of the lineup........

or maybe we should just go get Sammy Pahlsson and shut em down, like last time.
People get too caught up in numbering the lines. Kadri, for instance, is Toronto's #2 centre, but he plays the easiest minutes of the top 3. He's allowed a role that he can handle because Grabovski does all the heavy lifting defensively and Bozak plays on a top line that takes away all the attention. Schroeder at his best could do the same kind of thing imo, unfortunately he's been much too inconsistent (which is to be expected) to rely on that going into the playoffs.

Still rather hope and prey with Schroeder than get a 3rd line checker and hope Kesler can score.

In the playoffs, fighting is almost non-existant. If kassian dresses, I don't see the need for sestito.

put higgins with Lappy-Weise. Higgins-Lappy has shown some good chemistry before.



for that 2nd line player, some options to ponder:


Cammalleri

Tanguay

Clowe

Havlat

Hemsky

Vrbata

Jagr

Pominville

St. Louis

A flyer forward, they have a bunch

well then you might as well put sidney crosby in the poll so 100% of people can select it

the point of selecting 3rd line center over top 6 forward isn't because people think its worth more, it's that they think it's a more efficient expenditure of cap space/assets to acquire. of course, being such an intelligent person, you knew this and this post im responding to was ironic, right?

well the way I see it. If all we are going after is a 3rd line center it's a waste of assets because we wont get out of the first round. so we should just not do anything if that is the plan.

Came within a game of the Cup after picking up Lapierre and Higgins.. so I'd say 'yes.'

higgins played on the top 6.....

and we were like one of the lowest scoring teams in the playoffs.

And couldn't score a goal to save our lives against the Bruins...

not sure thats a good example to show we have enough "scoring"

May have played in the top-6 but he was a bottom-6 player. If they're relying on guys like Higgins and Lappy to lead the charge offensively, it's over before it's even begun.

Malhotra completely changed the way our forward lines operated, especially Kesler's. Nothing against Schroeder, but I don't feel comfortable rolling into the playoffs with him as our 3C.

Our health issues (and the way the rules changed in the playoffs) played a bigger part in the scoring woes than personnel IMO.

You just made my point, and Poolchamp's, we don't have enough offensive talented players.

Yet malhotra was not even part of the run.

We won 3 rounds without Malhotra even playing.

If we had adequate scoring from the 2nd line to support the twins, we would have had a much better chance to beat boston.

Our 3rd line of torres-lappy-hansen, actually was our best line, and was not the problem.

Fair enough. I wasn't looking at their value strictly from their offensive contributions.

You asked what bottom 6 additions "put us over the top", not which bottom 6 players took us to the finals. Clearly Lapierre and Higgins played important roles on that run.

Along with who we ended up playing.
