Plus he'd probably get Nigel Dawes out of this lineup for good, which would be a God-send.

Naslund-Gomez-Zherdev
Dubinsky-Drury-Recchi
Avery-Korpikoski-Prucha
Sjo-Betts-Orr

Thats more formidable than what we have now. Noones saying it would make us contenders, but it would make the team better.
hes a rental. we dont need rentals. we need to build this team for the future. right now, we are a marginal team, albeit, heading in the right direction, but still marginal. hes not a difference maker, so why bring him in at all for 2 months?

i hope our focus is on improving the team short and long term both.
