To be honest, this team needs a guy like career year Mike Peca or John Madden or, well, Primeau a lot more than a sniper, despite the goal drought.
Thanks. You are right, he definitely isn't going to warrant such a package without an extension.

I think you are right about what they need. Kovy would be nice, but they don't need him to be good. They can certainly use a character guy having a great year and willing to play his ass off for this team. I think at this point their struggles are mostly mental and they just need something to inject some confidence into the team and confidence in each other. It doesn't need to be a blockbuster move to shake them up.
