It's really quite heart breaking, our Powerplay. You look at Crosby in the 06/07 season, he had 59 even-strength points and 61 Powerplay points. This year he has 41 even-strength points (on pace for about 68) and only 14 powerplay points.
Whitney's salary is about the max we can add at the deadline w/o getting rid of someone, but is it worth giving up a 1st? I don't think this team can beat the Devils or Caps in the playoffs without massive improvements in their own end and on the PP like you said.
I'd hate to give up another 1st for a rental that IMO won't get us past those teams. If we don't get our game turned around I'd prefer to just hit the playoffs with what we have right now and make a trade in the offseason for a guy like Versteeg like Champagne Wishes proposed.
