    He says he wants a defensive third line, but I consistently see Kesler matching up against top guys when it matters (playoffs). If we want Kesler to be a shut down guy come crunch time, then we will need offense from our third line, and if we can get chemistry going now and can play our lines more equally (top 3) then we will be much more dangerous

    Good one, I could live with the Sabotage intro as a goal horn.

    An offensive third line will need to produce or there's no point to it over sending out the 1st or 2nd line again. The Canucks played around with that idea a bit when Wellwood was here.

    Yes.... but if we put some legitimate talent on the third line we could actually use them in key situations. Booth is a top 6 guy usually and Raymond is arguably a top 6er as well

    Everyone's a better player when they don't play with Kesler.

    I hope we roll with it for a while, things done usually click overnight but it would make us much touched to play against

    Just goes to my point. An offensive third line that doesn't produce doesn't draw coverage off the first two lines and is pointless.

    Shreds had a good game great work on the Raymond goal.

    Weiss did good in his fights compared to what hes done in the past. Seems to be improving his fighting.

    I'm more confident in Schroeder than I was in Wellwood, at least.

    2013 Raymond > 2008-09 Raymond
    Schroeder > Wellwood (defensively and physically)
    Kassian/Higgins/Burrows/Hansen > Pyatt

    Our potential offensive 3rd line would be better offensively, defensively, and physically compared to that 08-09 3rd line.

    Schroeder deserves an assist on that goal.

    they have been producing, and this is with Weise on with them a majority of the time

    Yes clearly won the scrap. Other than that was terrible. Passes were very poor. Left before he scored but apparently was a good wrist shot. If he has decided that he is no longer going to hit, then he is pretty much done.

    Good to hear that Schneider did well. Watching Smith tonite makes you appreciate what the Canucks have got - especially given Luongo's effort against the Black Hawks.

    I've never thought this of Kesler, I'm certain neither does anyone in the locker room.

    Agreed. Those were some pretty major holes going into the season and it looks like Kassian and Schroeder could be on their way to filling them.

    He should get a "worked hard" assist but not an actual one. If there was a delayed penalty on the Wild do you think they would have let the play continue when the puck was swept?

    Even if he ever did start to think like this I'm pretty sure his Dad would be quick to bring him right back to reality.

    Yeesh. I'm not saying it won't work and I'm not comparing it to Wellwood's line. I'm just saying that it has to be worthwhile relative to the first two lines.

    :biglaugh: Man the Wild. They spend like, $200 million on free agents and manage not to improve their team in the least. Maybe next summer they can spend $500 million.
