Plan B was Robert Lang.

He's big.

He plays in the middle.

He grins a lot.

His nickname could even be Malcolm.

We don't need another guy in the middle.

As for the D, which is our real need:
Kaberle would be a decent puck mover at a high-middling salary; Kubina might be more of a shooter and harder hitter, though more expensive.

I would send a very good prospect or two for either of them, a bit less quality for Kubina.

Any ideas?
For Kaberle, I'm hoping for what essentially Tampa got for Boyle. A good young roster player, a good prospect, and a 1st rounder.

For Kubina, I'd take a 1st straight up for him. Jaroslav Halak strait up would work too.

Don't care. But I hear he's doing horribly. I'm sure that will change though.
