Whitney would be a great addition but I am not in favour of a rental for a player that will return to his former team ala Tkachuk

I like Ponikarovsky. He would be well worth a 2nd rounder.

IF we do trade Mueller I hope it is a part of a larger deal to get a top 3 forward but not many are really available. I don't see us landing Kovalchuk merely because I see us having zero chance of signing him. Do you take a risk on Lecavalier? He's on pace for an 80 point season and is only 29 (though his contract runs out when he is 50 or something silly). I would be interested in the Youtes pursuing Hemsky except that won't help the team this season.

First order of business still s/b re-signing Michalek. THEN go after a scorer.
