Actually, Clowe was one of the big disappointments in the playoffs (IMO) as he stopped playing the physical game he should have, and stopped playing around the net. Michalek stepped up his physical intensity AND his play around the net in the playoffs. Not to mention he's a MUCH better skater than Clowe will ever be, and more offensive potential. I'll take Michalek any day over Clowe.

The don't need Moreau, they just need to re-sign Moen. And really, Souray would not be any improvement cap-wise over Gilbert, and I'd rather have the younger Gilbert.
