More shots on goal? You do realize that Daniel Sedin was 12th in the league in shots on goal.
Try this on for size... Our top line last year (Sedin, Sedin, Burrows) registered 603 shots on goal. Please remember that Burrows got almost no PP time and only spent half the year getting top line even strength minutes.
Now lets compare this to the Thornton, Marleau, Setoguchi line which was widely considered the best line in the league last year registered 636 shots on goal. Thats a whopping 33 shot difference.
Best second line in the NHL? How do people come up with this crap. STOP READING THE CANUCKS.COM FORUMS!
How about since the lockout they are 16th and 17th in total scoring.
Marian Gaborik?? Ya lets sign the one of the biggest band aid boys of all time. Do you really think its wise to hamstring your team with a 7.5 mil cap hit for a guy who plays a full season once every four years? You want to talk about bad playoffs, how about the one point in six games the last time he was in the playoffs.
Dany Heatley on his own line? Do you even watch hockey? Healtey is completely useless without someone to feed him one timers. Its painful trying to watch that man carry the puck. He is the very definition of one trick pony, he just so happens to be very good at that one trick but it is completely unrealistic to expect him to carry a line. Most importantly, there is this little thing called a salary cap!
