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.
Pacioretty-Lecavalier-Kovalev
Higgins-Koivu-Tanguay
Kostitsyn-Lang-Kostitsyn
Latendresse-Lapierre-Kostopoulos

JBo Hammrlik
Markov Komisarek
Gorges Bouillion

This should do it!
