I'm thinking something along the line of Stoll, and Purcell should get it done.

Next year could look something like this:

Smyth-Kopi-Williams
Schenn or Richie-Vinny-Brown
Richie or Schenn-Zeus-Simmonds
Well... It won't cost us the same as Kovalchuk, but is will cost us a lot more than that. As I said, Vinny has Kopitar numbers, regardless of the extra million, he is a very good center who has hit the 100 point and 50 goal marks. He is a franchise player and will cost some assets to acquire. His contract gives you a discount, but they won't move him if you are going to only offer a second line center and a prospect with diminished value.

Let's not fool ourselves. Lecavalier >>> Stoll.
