Sedins' opportunity to reestablish themselves as elite scorers?

With AV and his philosophy of no "running up the score" gone, will the sedins get more icetime, and consequently more points? Perhaps back to 100 point players?

4 points in 2 games for Henrik, I'm expecting at least 160 points.

Theyve been flubbing passes and loking sloppy lately (compared to their peak times)

Contract year + Torts riding them equals a big year for both I do think.

Do you even math? That would be 164 points

They're also getting increased ice time in defensive situations and penalty kills, while AV often just threw them out for offensive zone draws. I'm not expecting much of a difference in their stats - I'll take 80 points and above-average defensively from them any day.

Chance to maintain their status as elite scorers is more like it.

They haven't even managed PPG the last 2 seasons. They have dropped out of elite status.

They really need to stick with Hansen. Their game is more direct with him, Hansen gives them more grit and bite, and Burrows plays far better with Kesler than Hansen does. Teams also seem to have figured out the Burrows combo.

Honestly, I was thinking about how tough the west is to score (aside from when we stomp Colorado). The west seems to have a lot of teams that focus heavily on defence and have the rosters to back it up. I wonder if the Sedins would have scored more or less if they got to play teams in the east as opposed to the west. Maybe someone could keep track of how many points they score against teams in the east versus teams in the west this year.

Those Colorado stomps were really enjoyable to watch though. I never had an uneasy feeling going into one of those.

I'd give Kassian a look with Kesler but either way I like it. Defense, no. Garrison has been solid on the right side and I'd much rather allow that chemistry to build. Tanev can play the left side well enough if Corrado is called up.

Yeah that's true.

They can get 2-3 every night

i can see them both getting 90+ points this year. I sure hope so I somehow managed to get them both in my hockey pool drafting 12th overall of 16 on a snake style draft.

Totally forgot that we don't play Colorado that much. Now I'm sad We owned that team like no other. Our streak against them is pretty crazy.

It's worth a try, I agree, but let's not forget that they were playing the Edmonton Oilers, who were having a bad, bad night.

Hansen does seem to have a bit of "Burrows 2.0" in him. Similar background, similar development, similar ascent. Certainly should be tried out while Burrows is on the IR.

Thing I don't like about Hansen with Sedins is that Hansen lacks the hands to work well with the Sedins.

Henrik Sedin is only a season separated from being the top scorer in the West.

That forward group actually looks really nice.

What do you mean cut them some slack. The whole team plays terrible and should all be sent to the ECHL. They had 44 shots on goal last night with only 6 goals to show for it. With 44 shots on goal I expect the minimum 44 goals and on a good night when they are hot, 50 goals.

On top of that I can't see why Luongo is still playing in this league. It is my understanding that on HF the way to rate how good a player is is based solely on how many goals he scores in a season. Luongo hasn't scored a goal since he has been in the NHL, let alone the length of time he's played for the Cancucks. Obviously he is a bust as a hockey player.

The Sedins are done - the days of amazing and wondrous Sedinery are long past. They are now third liners at best which is why they are out killing penalties.

































To be clear - sarcasm.
