Desperate times call for desperate measures.
In the Canucks case, that looks like it means the the end of the Steve Bernier-on-the-first line experiment.
It was flawed from the start as Bernier’s style never meshed with the Sedin twins. Now, the twins get something they desperately need — speed.
Admittedly it’s not been working very well lately, but was it really “flawed from the start”? One of the first things that was apparent about the Sedins partnership with Bernier was that he gave them a physical presence where they’d never had one before. And for a couple games it seemed like it might work.
Anyway, onwards and upwards to LA, where Daniel and Henrik Sedin will now be hitting the ice with Mason Raymond. More details on lineup changes at The Province.
