True, but he isn't displacing it either. If he came in, it's not like we'd have to drop Dustin Brown out of our top six. Pouliot and Kostitsyn would be forced to bring that into their game in order to retain that last spot in the top six. As it is now, they can float around and we have no one to push them into those tough areas.

And I'd rather see 60 points from a floater than 40 points from a floater with the odd mean streak.

He isn't ideal, but I think he should be considered for the right price.

That way if LA were to deal, for example, Dustin Brown... We can afford to send them two good forwards for him without having a gaping hole open in the line up.
