The RPM Line needs to pick it up as well

I hacked on the "Unemployment Line" for it's lack of productivity, and I think that was justified. Alas, lost amongst all of the wins the Canucks have accomplished recently is a bit of futility from the RPM Line as well.

Mats Sundin

Scoring a goal in a shootout to beat his former team was a treat, but that masks the fact that Sundin has had the sniffles for about a week or so and that he hasn't been producing consistently. Mats has only 2 assists in his last 7 games, including 11 shots in that span. Take some damned advil Mats, and get going!

Ryan Kesler

It's hard to knock Kesler, because he's a great defensive player and he gives his all seemingly every moment that he's on the ice. In his past 7 games, Kes-god has 3 goals, no assists and 23 shots. Yeah, 23 shots. There's the effort factor.

Pavol Demitra

Pavol has 2 goals and 2 assists in his last 7 games. He has 14 shots. Not too bad, Demo.

Now we wait for the prognosis on his broken finger.

The RPM Line is not running on all cylinders.

So I guess that would mean that the Sedins and Burrows are doing the brunt of the scoring.

Alex Burrows: 2 goals and 5 assists in his last 7 games.

Daniel Sedin: 2 goals and 6 assists in his last 7 games.

Henrik Sedin: 3 goals and 6 assists in his last 7 games.

The Canucks have scored 21 goals in that span.

Prior to the 7 mentioned games, the RPM line was red hot for the span of 4 games, where they combined for 25 points. Now they have fallen silent on the score sheet. It's time for them to get going. The Sedins-Burrows line can't remain hot forever, but bless their damned hearts for producing lately, or we wouldn't be enjoying as much success.
