I think we need to sit tight and see where this playoff series goes first. Sure, Pavs is garnering a nice pay rise right now but at the same time, Marleau's offseason is causing his negotiation position to plummet. Regular season means little if you perform a disappearing act in the postseason.

If this team goes to the Stanley cup finals, I don't think much tweaking will be done at all to our forward corps.
Agreed. When the season is ended, we can talk about next year. I want to savor a team that is for the first time since .... forever .... playing to their expectations.
