Chicago deserves credit they are playing great. Vancouver needs some work and one more very good forward like has been said. However, Chicago is beatable over a 7 game series. When they have a injury in one of the top four, Kane, Towes, Kane, Keith they go from a very good team to just a good team. Like Bleach say Vancouver needs a forth very good player. They cannot have 5.3 million in salary sitting on the bench if he can help get they that player. Weiss, b prospect 2nd round pick would be fine with me. Deep draft and Florida struggling means the 2nd would be a descent prospect. Weiss is probably as good or better than Bollard with everyone matching up with Henrik and Kesler he should provide some offense. There is a big opportunity this year i hope we take it. This roster is good but not a cup winner yet IMO.

#canucks new D-pairs: hamhuis-Bieksa / Edler-Tanev, Garrison-Ballard.

To be honest I like it.


Worth a try.

Nice to see Hamjuice back together. Those pairings are worth a try, although Ballard must be wondering what he has to do to get into the top four.

about time.

Hammer is the best babysitter for juice. they had great success in the 2011 playoffs together, so you might as well try and keep them together. I like Edler with Tanev as well. Ballard is playing well too. Good to see these pairs. I like that Edler is on the left side. They were trying to force him to play the right side, right?

Gotta love our $8.8 million 3rd pairing, but we can't keep lu/schneider together because spending ~$9.5 mill on our MVPs is just crossing the line.

Is Edler on his natural side paired with Tanev?

One thing I also like about the D pairing is you have a passer and shooter on each pair.

Tanev Ballard just passed and passed up good scoring chances, Garrison and bieksa were both shooters.

Then it's worth a try. Something needs to gel here, especially with the shortened season.

New forward combos per Twitter as well;

D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Burrows
Higgins - Kesler - Hansen
Booth - Schroeder - Raymond
Weise/Volpatti - Lapierre - Kassian

Edler back on the left side. We now have the most expensive bottom pairing in the history of the game.

Hopefully Ballard on the right side isn't a disaster.

Makes sense. Let booth and raymond fly down the wings and let schroeder feed them pretty passes. Keep raymond as far away from kesler as possible. They just don't work together.

Forward lines worth a try to, although I might swap hansen for booth.

Although did someone say he (booth) is much better on left wing? I cant remember.

ballard's play (and confidence) is at the highest it's been since he got here so i guess now would be the best time to try him out on the right side again

If that doesn't work, put Burrows with Kesler on the 2nd and Kassian on the 1st. I don't think the Sedin slow start was due to Burrows not playing with them, but just a bit of rust.

That third line is going to be fast, fast, fast! Booth is a better finisher than Hansen, so that should be interesting to see.

Maybe not take retarded penalties night after night? That would be good for starters.

Methinks Schneider has earned another start after his sparkling showing in Chicago. Unless he earns the shutout in Dallas, you go with Luongo the next night, IMO.

I like the forward lines. Exactly what I would have tried.

On D, I really wonder if this is the end of right side Edler permanently. If so, maybe the Ballard for a right side D-man rumors start up really quickly.
