I don't understand the need to load up the first line. Splitting the Sedins has worked well so far, why deviate?

Sidney Crosby seems to be everywhere right now, so I'm sure that will cancel out Glass's impact or lack thereof. Seriously, Crosby is just playing out of his mind. Tall order to try and shut him down.

I strongly disagree with starting Lack here. Talk about throwing your backup to the wolves. On another note, really curious to see how these guys do against a top team that isn't San Jose.

We also have Deryk Engelland on our 4th line, instead of on D. Kobasew 2nd line, Glass/Adams 3rd line, Engo 4th line.

What happened to Bennett anyway? Will he be out long? Been following him ever since I heard that the Canucks wanted him in 2010.

I think it's just Torts looking at another option.

I'm happy that Garrison and Edler are back together
When I look at our offence and see Santorelli as our 2C I get a little scared. Then I look at our D pairings and I feel much better.

I definitely see the D core as the strength of this team. I think this D right now is better than any D core I've seen as a Canucks fan. There is no pairing that is a liability now that we have Stanton instead of Alberts/Rome/Weber/Barker.

BB should not be out that long.

And Corrado is our #7, basically (at least once the playoffs roll around). So we're even covered quite well for injuries.

Crosby would probably make Tanner Glass into an Olympian. I mean, he's made Kunitz and Dupuis into highly productive point producers....he's ridiculous.

I really think we have really solid depth when healthy, our d-men is the strength of the team. 8 games in and our top 6 already has 21 point with Edler missing 3 games. Schroeder, Kassian, Tanev and Stanton give us that youth and speed we need, and I am still hoping Jensen makes it on the team once he gets comfortable in Utica. That Booth-Schroeder-Kassian line looked great, there seems to be something there and I'm excited to see what happens. The only big concern I have right now is with that fourth line. We need to be able to juggle four lines and the only player I like on that line is Richardson.

I like Weise... good 4th liner, certainly above average. Sestito is the weak link but he does OK against weak teams. Burrows being back will be big help. Might end up with Booth on the 4th which is kind of nuts (in a good way; or Santorelli if he really cools down).

Kunitz has produced with the Ducks a few times:

41 pts
60 pts
50 pts
35 pts (18 more with Pens)

Nothing really new with Kunitz that he hasn't done with the Ducks.

Dupuis? well, most of the 59 point season was with Jordan Staal. But he's not been that great this season (same with Kunitz) so far, but they still producing.

I like trying a ton of line combinations now while we can, and then finding what we think works best. That way if we struggle either now or in the playoffs (assuming we make it), we could have some proven line combinations to fall back on.

As long as the experimenting isn't costing us games, there is no reason. There will be plenty of time for players to build chemistry with their long term linemates down the stretch.

I like it. It's early in the season and we need to find out what those guys can do together on a line. Plus, Burrows is out so it's an even better time to try and experiment.

I wanted Kes with the Sedins in the SCF when we were having trouble scoring. Sure, Kes was playing on one leg but he still looked like he was trying the hardest out of any other Canuck. Sigh.
