I'm thinking a possible shakeup move could be to trade Kovy (maybe for a defenceman). I know Kovy's our most talented forward and a true gamebreaker but his effort isn't always consistent, he can be frustrating to watch and coach, he doesn't always use his head, he takes some selfish penalties, and I question whether he makes his linemates better. I also think we have enough leadership to fill his void. If he is traded, it should be to a Western Conference team (Kovy to Minny for Zidlicky?) so that we don't run into an inspired Kovy in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

I love watching Kovy and he certainly has top drawer talent. However, I honestly don't think the team will be any worse without him, and I think his subtraction might make us more of a TEAM.

Any other ideas for a 'shakeup'?
Short term I would call Weber back.. Bench S.Kost, then send him in the minors if he didnt learn.. I want to see Weber getting a real chance and getting PP time.. I would bench Brisebois and Gorges or Bouillon...
