And remember, there is no salary cap in the playoffs. If Briere could return safely then, we could get the best of both worlds. The biggest issue would be next season. It would be an assured loss of Knuble, and probably not space for JVR
Yeah but Lupul shouldnt be on the third line, he should be on one of the top 2.
I am not willing to go into the playoffs with only Carter, Richards and Gagne to rely on to give me consistent offense at even strength.
If Giroux or Nodl were more developed and ready to step into the top 6 than I would be all for it....
I understand that most people thing "defense wins championships" but without Briere and then without Lupul as well, our depth at forward is seriously low....
I doubt you are going to win a cup with Metro, Powe, Kalinski, Nodl or Grioux (at least at this point in their careers) in your top 8-9 forwards.
