A summer with Malone and Vasicek would make me happy... two big guys we are lacking to go further in the playoffs. I do not agree with thoswe who say that we should take Hossa, Sundin or nothing. We are not even remotely close to being that good. We need to prevent a harder season from Kovalev and a couple of injuries. And we need to address this lack of size. The sries against Boston tired our guys out and we need more players able to respond to physical play.

So I'd like Gainey to get both Malone and Vasicek.
The size thing is BS...did you not watch Pittsburgh vs Detroit? Pittsburgh was much bigger and had the refs on their side and Detroit was still clearly the better team. The Habs lost to Phillie in round 2 and the teams were identical in height and weight, we outplayed them but Biron badly outplayed Price.

I'll take a gritty 5.11" guy like Talbot 100 times over a big lazy guy like Vacicek...

I'd take Malone but I don't think he signs my 3 year 9 mil offer and somebody pays him over 20 mil for 5 years...no dice
