Those of you who brush aside this problem are really not thinking clear. We just traded for a young relatively inexpensive first liner and signed a veteran point producer and people still complain about how our top 6 forwards are unimpressive.

You guys better get used to it because Drury and Gomez will be centering the top 2 lines and the only way we will get wingers around them is to sign aging veterans and praying that our young guys develop (ie. zherdev cherry and dawes becoming bonafide).

When you look at the forwards around the league making 7 million or more it can definitely be argued that Drury and Gomez are the players least deserving of the money. I mean when we discussion potential line combos, its a problem when we say that OUR 2ND LINE WITH A 7 MILLION DOLLAR PLAYER DOESNT LOOK UP TO SNUFF...I cant think of any other 7 mil+ player that if they were on our second line it wouldnt look good on paper with the players we have.
