1.
Mtl: Olli Jokinen

Flo: Chris Higgins, 1st, Alexei Emelin or Subban or O'byrne

2.
MTL: Patrick Marleau

San Jose: Saku Koivu

Now imagine this

Latendresse-Jokinen-Kovalev
S.Kost-Marleau-A.Kost
Maxpac/Dago-Plekanec-UFA/Kosto
Bégin-Chipchura-Lappierre

That line-up is not out of reach and all of these changes are very realistic. Not to mention this is a line-up that will generate more offense, more power and is much more suited for the playoffs. Now i know that it's very improbably that we have 2 new centers for our top 6 but i just wanted to know your impressions on this. Jokinen or Marleau or both would make excellent additions and fill a need we haven't looked at in years.
Florida wants twice that for Jokinen.
