The Sedin Experiment

    If “Henrik started and centered the first line with Samuelsson and Burrows, while Daniel joined Raymond and Kesler”, then it’s not possible that “Burrows would likely resume his spot on the 3rd line”, unless he double-shifts. I guess you meant that putting Bernier on the first line?

    I was pondering this myself, thinking that Henrik has raised his game, and if he can score goals and get points like this, he must be limiting himself when playing with Daniel playing “set up man”.

    What I hope is that they both decide to play the same sort of shooting game, twins on the ice, when Daniel comes back. I don’t know about who else should go on the top line but I think splitting the Sedins would be wrong. There is no doubt about the connection between them on the ice, this is just evidence that they haven’t been using that in the best way.

    That said, I think it would be risky to put Daniel straight back into the first line, but equally on the Kesler/Raymond line too. Ease him back from injury with some third or fourth line minutes.

    For the time being it’s been Henrik with Burrows and Samuelsson.

    I’m not suggesting Burrows double shift, but with his lack of production on the top line getting top minutes, I see him getting bumped to the third. It was clear that a large part of his success was playing with both of the Sedins and their passing mentality.
