Yeah that's the only rub. Or only hope is that they consider sacrificing a portion of their defence for offence in the free agent market. Something that makes sense to me, though it hurts me to say it, is to offer the rights of koivu for the rights to beauchemin. Anaheim desperately needs a second line center, and he would perfectly complement selanne. Our offense might suffer at first, but i think our young guys who struggled this year would improve with a better core of D-guys behind them.
