Bouillion as a 5-6 is not as big a liability as you say... and I liked Bouillion-Gorges last year.... maybe we are on depth D away; or a replacement for streit.
3) I like the three offensive lines Idea, but you already have 5 offensive wingers... and Sundin gives you three offensive centres..... While a Rolston signing would be nice you don't have to get him.... That last spot can be a competition between Grabovski/D'Ago/MaxPac/Stewart/Lapierre/Streit (if resigned)/Chipchura etc.... If Lapierre or Chips win insert Begin on the fourth line....
Your lines look like this
Akost - Plek - Kovy
Higgins - Sundin - Sergei
Latendresse - Koivu - (see point 3)
Kosto - Chips - Lappierre
Extra: Begin + 2nd place in point 3
Markov - Komi
Hammer - O'Byrne
Bouillion - Gorges
Extra: Breezy or Tank
Now Rolston could still be a good signing... and its one I actually like a lot, cause i think he has the shot and ability to replace Streit on the point on the first PP unit.
Bouillon is far from being a liability but if we are to improve our D he should be the first to be out. Hes a fan favorite and i understand that but man some people just overrate his value to the team too damn much. As ive said many times, he would be a perfect 7th Dman.
Instead of targeting Sundin, i think we should look for a D in the UFA market. Campbell and Liles ould be great in our system. A good D brings more offense than just Sundin alone for instance. Look at Detroit, with th D they have, their forwards alawys have the puck. That makes any offense look good.
