You aren't making a solid 1st and second line with two $4-5 million dollar players. In addition, because they're UFAs, and all UFAs are overpaid, you're going to be spending $3-4 million more than their value.
You know who are "$4-5 million dollar players?" Gomez and Drury. Unfortunately, they were signed as UFAs, and thus were overpaid and received $7+ million each. Marleau's going to be the same thing this offseason.
The only way to fix our offense is to undergo several years of incremental steps or to add a player who can carry his own line, so that we have.
I'm fine with taking the incremental steps, but obviously others aren't if they're advocating another multi-play UFA shopping spree.
Thus, the superstar who can carry his own line is the only viable short-term/long-term solution. Unfortunately, Kovalchuk is the only player of that ilk that is available... so you go after him, and you go after him hard.
