And I think if Gainey feels he won't get Sundin, then he may move quick for Hossa on July 1.
I wouldn't mind Stoll for all the reasons stated above.
The more I think of it, the more I think he could be very useful: Right-handed, can play the point on PP, can play center and good on faceoffs...
My only interrogation mark is that Streit was a left-handed shooter, so Markov was playing on the left side on the PP... If Stoll plays the point Markov will have to switch side, and i'm not sure if he'll be comfortable. Also, I really like Markov on the left side, because of his cross-ice pass inside the box to Kovalev on the right-side!
