@ Sonny, I think Hamhuis is the type of guy who really just needs a change of scenery (like Carle).

I'm not a Stevens fan, but if you don't get on the ****list, then players seem to perform pretty well for him. I mean, Carle has been a huge, huge addition and I don't think it's a coincidence that we've been playing our best hockey since that deal.

This is the first time we've had 2 legit top-4 pairings since 2004, adding Hamhuis to that would make us even better.
Thinking about it like that makes it a little nicer, but when I went back and looked at the rest of the pairings I really liked it. Vaananen on the third pairing and Coburn with Timonen would be awesome. My only fear would be that Stevens might not sit Jones as much as he should given certain situations.
