All I mean is that I think if you put a Holmstrom/Smyth type with the Sedins it'll fail miserably at least compared to a Hull type, IMO.

Shooting for screens/straight-on tips isn't really their game, IMO.

Alexander Semin. He could just stand in the slot all day and pick apart the goalie.

Oh man, reminds me of CDC.

Weinhandl is a decent linemate in international/SEL play, but he doesn't cut it in the NHL.

At least that's how I feel about him. The Canucks could have snatched him on numerous occasions, but have chosen not to. I think they don't think he can thrive in the NHL either.

Anson Carter definitely played for screens and tips as well. I just re-watched his highlights with the Sedins, and he's always in front of the net. The thing that made him very successful, though, was his ability to peel away from the defender for rebound goals.

Holmstrom would be interesting, certainly not a Burrows-esq player but one can see the scenario on ice: initial perimeter cycling by the Sedins with Holmstrom screening - the defence will have a though time with that combo.

Anyone who watched the Olympics and says Weinhandl... Weinhandl had some chemistry with them more than 10 years ago, that doesn't mean it's still there. He was absolutely brutal in the Olympics and ruined the cycle every single time.

The ideal linemate for the Sedins is Alex Burrows.

To be quite honest I didn't watch them in the Olympics.

I do, however, recall their play in the SEL during the NHL lockout.

Yes, but during the Olympics it was terrible. Certainly as the Sedins could have had Samuelsson with them instead who they had some proved chemistry with the same season.

Weinhandl is a cream puff, more importantly he only knows how to play on the big ice surface in Europe — now that's great for him and all (lighting up the KHL), but it doesn't make him a good linemate for the Sedins (who are in the NHL).

(Also, Jobal, those comments weren't directed at you — they were directed at WarriorOfGandhi.)

I honestly felt bad for your team, can't believe BAG couldn't see that and didn't make the change. In fact, most of the lines were... uhhh... strange.

Sedin - Sedin - Iginla

My god, that would be destruction. I wonder, if Calgary is cellar dwelling some the deadline, if they would move Iginla. It would probably cost Hodgson however I am still damn well tempted. He may be good, but that line is simply drool worthy.

My first choice is Rick Nash, but I've been on the Nathan Horton campaign trail for several years now.

Stamkos would be absurd. That one-timer from a Sedin pass? Lethal. He's smart and not afraid of the boards either. He'd be the guy for me assuming he could handle RW.

I agree that a Hull type would be better, I only brought up Holmstrom because I'd have assumed that somebody else would have by that point.

Hell, IMO Phil Kessel would likely have a 50-60 goal season sometime in the next couple years if Burke was able to snatch up the twins last year in FA.

Great suggestions of Franzen, Nash, and Hejduk - all of which would be pretty productive with the twins, I think.

A little out there, but I think that Andrew Brunette would score a bunch alongside the Sedins - in a similar way that Burrows does.

Alex Burrows so far has exhibited the most proven/best chemistry with the sedins so far racking up 35 goals. Outside of Burrows, I'd say Marian Hossa deserves a mention. Two way first liner that is good at working along the boards/cycling and has a lethal wrist shot. Also like the sedins it's very difficult for defenders to take the puck off of his stick when he uses his large frame. Not only that, he is also good at scoring garbage goals in front of the net like burrows seemingly does efficiently.

Isn't Hossa's game based around carrying the puck? Sounds like conflict.

I'm tempted to say Trevor Linden in his prime would be another great fit.

based on burrows, the sedins thrive with a fast player who is good on the forecheck, good at finding open spaces, willing to go to the net, strong on the boards, and who understands puck possession hockey. sounds like glenn anderson to me.

Iginla if we cut away a couple of years. I don't know if he'd be considered 'cost-effective' in the way the TS meant. If the NHL was played on big ice I would actually consider Weinhandl as the perfect linemate, but obviously he sucks on small ice.
