We can have 3 offensively minded lines, here are mines: (taking in consideration that Kovalev will resign with us)
Higgins Koivu Kovalev
Hossa Ribeiro Ryder
Zednik Plekanec Perezhogin
Begin Dowd Dwyer or Langdon if resigned
I dont think Bulis will fit in Habs plans anymore...
Removing Bulis and Sundstrom is brilliant. We'll see a much improved PK without them. :p
Without the sarcasm though, Bulis and Sundstrom are integral parts of this team's success. You can't go into a season thinking of playing three offensive lines with 4 rookies, 2 youngsters and 1 potential UFA. That's fantasy league thinking.
Bulis and Sundstrom are complementary players. They're versatile, they don't complain, and they're strong at the fundamental parts of the game; parts of the game that a Koivu, Ribeiro, or other high-risk offensive players are not. Begin and Dowd do not begin to fill either of Sundstrom nor Bulis' shoes. Simply put: they're different players, and you need the Bulis' and Sundstrom's to be successful.
I would agree that Sundstrom's overpaid, so it will be interesting to see how things pan out this summer. If he's lost though to free agency, it will be a blow to the Canadiens.
