As a third liner and if the price to have him isn't to steep I say yes.

Why not trade Sergei Kostitsyn + a draft pick.

They got a young cheap talented foward that could still overcome his personnality issue elsewhere + cap relief.

I don't think Chicago can expect more then that.
I was trying to explain this to someone the other day: you don't need every player in the top 6 to be a big time point getter. If Byfulgien stands in front of the net and never touches the puck but it goes in, thats like an assist. To me it's that more of an assist than most second assists. As long as he makes life tough for goalies and defenders in front of the net, he'll be a welcome addition to our team. He won't be cheap though. Probably Weber and Paccioretty, one of those and 2nd rounder. I'd love to see him on our team.
