And why scoring is the criteria? LeCavalier is a centre. Centre is your 3rd D that also provides the offense. 3rd line - more defense, 1st line - more offense. As I pointed out many times offense and scoring is not the same. Scoring is sniper's job. IK is a sniper, that what he does. We've got sniper in Gaborick, we need 1st line C. Vinny is the best in NHL in that position, IMO.
Bottom line: can't compare apples and oranges just because both are fruits.
Normally I would agree with you 100% but I feel that when you're talking about players at such an elite level as Gaborik and Kovalchuk you really don't need to consider playmaker vs. sniper. Having two of the world's most gifted and dynamic scorers on the team is not a problem. Especially with cheaper playmakers on the team. We're talking about one player who can add 40-50 goals virtually by himself. Our powerplay would be unstoppable. Our offense would be out of control. Kovalchuk might not be all that safe defensively but safe is death right?
