I know this team just beat their biggest rival in the NHL, and a team who has beat them 2 years in a row, but in game 7 I really saw some lines which I really liked, and it made me think what happen if we where to roll these lines vs Nashville. I heard a caller talk about these lines too when listening to 1040, so I can't be the only one.
Obvious Chemistry,and Samuelsson always does seem to play his best when he is a Sedin winger. Sedin's will always be the Sedin's meaning they will always play high caliber hockey, and raise the effectiveness of their linemates.
We all know of Keslers chemistry with both Raymond and Burrows. All three are solid defensive players, who can skate, and can score. Burrows doesn't really need the puck to be effective, neither of these players do, but I honestly think this line could be dangerous.
Higgins to me has been really solid this post season, he's a two way player, but is not a top 6 player, but a very solid third liner. Hansen has been nothing short of brilliant so far, and Hodgson has looked very poised and confident for a rookie. Depending on how you feel with Hodgson out their, he can be replaced with Lapierre, who worked wonderfully with Higgins, and Hansen in game 7. The HLH line up was the second best line after the kesler-burrows line up in game 7.
A physical, and very competent fourth line. Won't get stuck in their own zone, and should do what a fourth line should do. Hit, forecheck, and get the team riled up and excited.
I know this may seem stupid, considering this team just had their best season in franchise history, and just knocked off the blackhawks, but alot of these line ups where used in game 7, and this team to me played its best all around game, generating chances, forechecking, and playing solid offense and defense in game 7.
