Rate the centre depth

Sedin-Kesler-Roy-Lapierre is pretty much set as our 4 centres.

Voted great.

I voted good. We need to stay healthy though. There are only a cpl of teams in the great category and we are not one of them.

behind boston and pitt. Would love it if we got one more play maker.

Boston has Krejci, Seguin, Bergeron, Peverly, Kelly, Marchand and Horton who could all play centre.

Vancouver has Sedin, Roy, Kesler, Lapierre, Higgins, Schroeder, Ebbett. Would love one more player who could be a full time player in the top 9 who can distribute the puck. Could be Kassian, but for now it's not him.

Why would you count someone like Horton or Marchand but not Burrows?

Also, only 4 centres can be used in any one game.

They qualify at C per Yahoo, Burrows doesn't? lol

More seriously though, I voted good. Great when healthy, but Roy & Kesler both have injury history and that drops the rating a notch.

Burrows, before this season, did not play C at any level of professional [ice] hockey.

You could use 12 centres if you wanted, not sure what you mean here.

Good, not great. Roy has potential but we've got to see him and his linemates show chemistry. Kesler is possibly the best 3rd line centre in the league, but is a good 2nd liner only. Sedin is very good but on the downward slope...

Maybe this has been covered, but does it strike anyone else as strange that last year we dealt Cody Hodgson for a future in Kassian (and then added Pahlsson) under the pretense that we wanted to run two offensive lines and two shutdown lines, and now we're going to run a 5'9 scoring centre on our third line going into the playoffs because we can't score?

I'm not griping btw, I really think Kassian is going to be important to us moving forward, and I get the argument that if you can get a prospect like that you have to try.

I vote great also.

I would rate it Great, but they need 1 more defensive centre.

I voted good so I am now happy that we added Roy. Overall dissapointed with the deadline because I thought we could do more. Torres? Anyways this looks like our lineup next week with Kesler.

Sedin-Sedin-Jensen/Burrows
Higgins-Kesler-Burrows/Jensen
Raymond-Roy-Hansen (I don't like this line for some reason)
Sestito-Lapierre-Pinizzotto

Tmrw's lineup to me looks like:

Sedin-Sedin-Jensen
Higgins-Roy-Burrows
Raymond-Lapierre-Hansen
Sestito-Ebbett-Pinnizzotto

I think Lapierre would look better on the third line than Ebbett. Once Kesler comes back Ebbett is sent down to the Wolves then Lapierre on the 4th and Roy on the third unless Roy and Kesler play together. I kind of wish we got someone else at the deadline.

Good, not great, due to Kesler's health concerns, Henrik's decline, and the team's inability to win a faceoff.

When healthy..... Elite level.

You will be hard pressed to find a better group than that outside of Pittsburgh and Boston..

Roy is gonna definitely boost the confidence of this team. We will see how it translates on the ice.

My point is if one team has Corsby-Malkin-scrub-scrub as C depth, and another has 12 natural tweener centres moved to wing, it's obvious which has better centre depth.

In any given game/matchup.

Henrik > Bergeron
Kesler > Krejci
Roy > Peverly
Lapierre/Schroeder > Thornton

Brandon Sutter isn't a scrub but our Forward depth looks nice unfortunately all our wingers are inconsistent. That might be our downfall "scoring" again.

Voted Good.

Would have voted great if:

Henrik was younger
Kesler was not injured and still a Selke contender
Roy was signed for more than this season.

I think that our center depth is going to make up for the weaker wingers.....most team center are their best forward like the pens

Good... certainly not great.

No depth outside of top 4... bad at faceoffs.

Uhh... Boston has 6 centers...

Seguin, Bergeron, Krejci, Peverly, Kelly, Campbell... (5 of those guys over 55% faceoffs...)
