    do we, though? sedin, kesler, santorelli, richards: all proven they can be workable centremen, santorelli at second-line minutes even. it reduces our depth and tortorella's in-game flexibility, but considering how weak we were last year in that position i reckon we can get by with what we've got.

    I think Tort want to keep Kesler on the wing so that means Santorelli and Richardson and ???

    Comets are playing tonight so all those guys are out. So at least for the Columbus game they're going to go with Weber or Alberts on forward.

    nah. kesler looks good on the wing but he hasn't blown minds with the sedins, and considering we're now a C short it'd be madness to call someone up when we've got a star player who's natural in the role. unless torts decides he doesn't need a 4th line at all we'll see kesler back in the middle.

    Kassian is starting to roll. If you want to build on that...

    Sedin Sedin Kassian
    Higgins Kesler Hansen
    Booth Santorelli Weise
    Sestito Richardson Weber

    IMO you can't keep Kesler on the wing when your centremen start falling to injury.

    Really hoping Schroeder's injury isn't too serious. We have serious issues down the middle with him out.

    Kassian was skating hard on a lot of shifts... he was very noticable when he was on the ice.

    I really hope the Canucks can find someone to replace Schroeder.

    There was a play in the game against the Pens today where he crossed the blue line on the right hand side with ample space, and instead of trying to make a play he softly slid the puck in the corner right to the Pens defensemen who quickly cleared the zone.

    It was one of the softest plays I've seen and unfortunately it isn't unprecedented with him. How many floater wristers from just inside the blue line is he going to attempt?

    When he drives wide, is he ever going to go to the net, or is he always going to try a soft perimeter backhand from a terrible angle?

    Great teams don't have 3rd line centers who are that timid. I know he's small, and I guess he's afraid of getting hit, but if he thinks his skill alone will keep him in the lineup, then he's in for a surprise.

    I hope he shows more, but at this stage, he's soft as butter and a well below average 3rd line center.

    Weird. Well, at least he's a big body for the 4th line.

    I'm going to go a bit easier on BIEKSA because he had 3 assists and was a +3 in the pens game. I'm pretty sure he ran to the wrong side of the net which ended up leaving a pen wide open for a goal, but 3 assists is pretty good.

    I don't mind afternoon games, but I despise morning games. Ugh, let me sleep for however long I want Bettman.

    Afternoon games are great on the weekends. Let's me get some work done in the evenings and grab dinner with people without actually missing hockey.

    Columbus is also on the back end of a back to back games (and most likely losing the first one). There's no excuse for dropping the next game especially with a solid performance against the Penguins.

    He was barely in the lineup, so it's not the injury is a major blow, other than to his chances of showing he belongs in the NHL... Not a lot of options to call up; Burrows' status is much more important to 'upgrade' what we've seen in the past few weeks.
