Kostitsyn-Lang-Kostitsyn
Latendresse-Lapierre-Kostopoulos


Also, compare the amount of "sandpaper" on a team like Boston to that of Montreal and realize that the difference is most likely overstated.

I'm all for adding a big, tough scorer, a guy like we think Pacioretty can develop into, but teams seldom trade these valuable guys.

All in all if this team has an area that's less strong, it's clear that defense is it. Unless he finds a home run to slam, Gainey should pursue a defenseman.
Exactly, our Forwards are fine. When we have everyone healthy we are set up front. We need a top defenceman or a good 2 way guy who can bump gorges to the bottom pair with Bouillon. Brisebois is not an everyday defenceman.

If Bob ends up getting Vinny, we still need an upgrade on Defence. Especially if Bob has to include Gorges in the deal. Brisebois just simple is not good enough to play in the playoffs as a regular.
