Lack of French Canadian background you mean ?



Hansen & Booth are my picks.

I think Burrows' skillset is a lot higher than Hansen's, both physically and mentally. Hansen is a workhorse, no doubt about it, but his hands are made of cement and he does not have the offensive instincts that Burrows does. Even the tap-ins that Burrows gets, playing with the Sedin's, show a high level of skill, as he's still battling for position with the defender, and the hand-eye coordination that's required on those plays is very high. He's a good, skilled hockey player.

There's probably room for productivity growth in Hansen, but not that much, IMO. Can't imagine him having a Burrows-esque breakout a la 2008-09.

Sestito - will be very physical and prove to be a valuable 4th liner

This is kind of an interesting answer.

I dislike Sestito. I think at this point he is a 6 minute, irrelevant player.

However, I do think he has the potential to be that rare "15-20 point, 10 minute a night enforcer".

I would have expected that in a contract year. I hope you're right though, it would be a nice surprise.

This. Career year for some, return to form for others!

Tanev. Bold prediction: ends up with PP time due to injuries and puts up points. (well...mostly assists lol)

I don't think anyone would have seen that "skill-set" UNTIL Burrows broke out, though. Totally within the realm of possibility that Hansen's skillset begins to click, IMO.

If you compare pre-Sedin Burrows to Hansen, Burrows does not appear to have better hands at all.

I agree with Booth. And it'll be funny because "overachieving" will actually just be hitting his career averages, but it'll blow people's minds.
