With regards to moving Vey to wing to make way for Hovat, I thought of that.
And I also asked myself why didn't the Kings do this as well. I did a "quick" analysis of the King's line up and compared it against our line up.
My Canuck conclusions from this are:
1. We need Nicklas Jensen and Bo Horvat in the line up.
2. Unless Vey is a Chris Chelios, David Booth, freak of nature, he's not strong enough or heavy enough to be an effective winger.
3. If Vey does indeed have the physical gifts to be an effective winger, then I'd rather dump Derek Dorsett than either Chris Higgins, Brad Richardson or Jannik Hansen. Sucks for Derek but all three of those guys have more offensive ability than Derek.
My King conclusions are, I think they're going to win another SC this year.
