Where is Bernier btw?
Is he still hurt? Day to Day? Scratched?

I suspect you'll see:

Sedin-Sedin-Samuelsson
Burrows-Kesler-Demitra
Grabner-Wellwood-Raymond

Demitra can be rotated around with Grabner/Raymond but I absolutely HATE any line that consists of both Demitra and Wellwood; I think they're terrible together. The coaching staff seems set on trying to re-establish the Burrows/Kesler line with the way Samuelsson has played with the Twins to give us a truly balanced attack

Depends on Bernier's improvement, but I'd rather see a fourth line of:

Rypien-Johnson-Bernier with Hordichuk or Glass subbing in if we need toughness.

He had surgery for the sports hernia thing that seems far to common these days. I think he's supposed to be back when the playoffs are close to starting. I've heard he's been to a few of the games since the surgery has been done for awhile but he's still limping. Not sure when he'll be skating again, I would think in a week or two though.

I for one wasn't sure if we had to waive anybody to keep Grabner up (that is once the injured guys return). I was pretty sure those rules changed when the playoffs start and I want to keep Grabner regardless until when the playoffs start at least.

this is a solid line up, but I think burrows should play with the sedins in the playoff's.

I say this

Sedin Sedin Burrows
Raymond Kesler demitra
Grabby wellwood sammy

3 sick lines imo

another good mix would be

sedin sedin sammy
raymond kesler burrows
grabby wellwood demitra

orrrr

sedin sedin burrows
raymond kesler sammy
grabby wellwood demitra

they all seem good honestly

ya...I like lineup 2 because it gives you Kesler, burrows, and raymond as both an offensive line and shutdown line. However, playing grabner and wellwood together may make the 3rd line too weak and that would be exploit especially with last changes on the road...

Sedin Sedin Burrows
Raymond Kesler demitra
Grabby wellwood sammy


sedin sedin sammy
raymond kesler burrows
grabby wellwood demitra


sedin sedin burrows
raymond kesler sammy
grabby wellwood demitra

i'm guessing if we have everybody healthy and ready to go, the line up will be like this:
sedins-sedins-sammy
burrows-kesler-demitra
raymond-wellwood-bernier
hansen-johnson-rypien/hordichuk

i think the hernia thing was holding bernier back big time, and that line might be able to recapture their chemistry from last playoff.
the top 2 lines remains as before all the injuries, since they've been effective.
sucks that grabner is coming out, he played very well so far and seems to be getting better, but i can't see him playing 4th line, and unless bernier crap out again and get demoted, i don't see who grabby will replace.

Samuelsson could be back Tuesday according to Ben Kuzma:

Mikael Samuelsson skated again Friday and could return Tuesday at home against the Coyotes after suffering a left shoulder strain on March 16 against the New York Islanders.

That would make it exactly 2 weeks. Will be great to have him back, and if Demitra is back too...we'll finally see what AV has in mind for Grabner.

Good news for the Canucks, bad news for Grabner. He needs to score tomorrow.
