Kovalchuk gives another legit thrreat

It could end up being a blessing in disguise because they then have to play younger cheaper players on

I pray that Drury would waive to Colorado. They are a good young team that coud benefit from a veteran leader. Lets say by some miracle he would waive and its somehing like Drury, Gilroy for Liles and a 2nd

I know everyone is on the Rozy bandwaggon but after the UFAs clear they could move him for a younger Dman that makes half his contract. Liles had a bad year but DZ and Liles would make a pretty solid PP unit........I know this may e a pipe dream but Sather is a trade genious so it makes me think it could go down
Marleau can't play C. The point is, he wouldn't match up against anyone basically. It would maybe be a draw between our 1st line C and the Islanders 1st line C -- and the rest of the east would have a edge on us.

You can have a rightwing who skates up and down the ice and does some good things every now and then -- but centers needs to battle with the center on the other team. Richards vs Marleau. Lecavalier vs Marleau. Crosby/Malkin vs Marleau. Bäckström vs Marleau.
