-Wellwood with Bernier and Mason was arguably the 2nd best line for the Canucks after the Sedins, and
-Holy cow, the Sedins were really something out there. I think Keith and Seabrook were getting dizzy out there with all the spinning-off Hank and Dany were doing.
-Byfuglien is a terror out there, and as strong as Ohlie is, he could barely contain the dude. What Tkachuk was in the last series, this guy will be in this.

Being at the game last night, I want to say that Kyle Wellwood played an amazing game last night
We don't need Hordichuk in this series. Chicago's only tough guy Eager was flying out there and not even willing to fight Rypien or Bieksa when the Canucks were ahead. I don't care what anyone says, I like Pyatt over Hordichuk against the 'hawks. Plus it gives other possibilities on long PK stretches and line combos when necessary. Hordichuk did little tonight from what I saw.
It is far more than 4th line time. Pyatt can slot in, when necessary, on any line. He is big, won't be forced off the puck, and has shown he is a good playoff performer in the past.
