But for years Vancouver has had a problem. Who do they play with the twin brothers? The two went through dozens of different right wingers before they started playing with Alex Burrows. They have played with all of the following:


2000-01- Trent Klatt, Todd Bertuzzi
2001-02- Trent Klatt
2002-03- Trent Klatt, Trevor Linden
2003-04- Jason King, Magnus Arvedsson
2005-06- Anson Carter
2006-07- Taylor Pyatt
2007-08- Taylor Pyatt, Markus Naslund
2008-09- Alex Burrows, Pavol Demitra, Steve Bernier
2009-10- Alex Burrows, Mikael Samuelsson
2010-11- Alex Burrows

The nickname for the 2003–04 season combination was "The Mattress Line". Which featured Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, and Jason King. They were named this after mattress sizes: "Two twins and a king."

So the perfect fit for the Sedins’ isn’t this guy: Photobucket

It’s this guy:Photobucket

Because he not only makes the Sedins better (PPG from 2008-11). He also has stepped up his own game, originally suppose to be a 3rd line shut down player, but he then was placed on the Sedins line and he never looked back. And now he is scoring some of the biggest goals of his career en route to the Stanley Cup.
