Compared to what we got?

Who do you mean?

Kulemin? On pace for 30 goals.
Grabovski? On pace for 33 goals.
MacArthur? On pace for 25 goals.
Versteeg? On pace for 21 goals.
Kessel? On pace for 28 goals.

Our biggest hole is not depth players, we got a ton of them. What we need is top line talent. A number one center like Richards or a number one power forward. Cogliano does not fit this description and is a similar player to Bozak at this time (Read: He's redundant). Doesn't mean we won't take him on our team, but certainly not at the cost of an asset that we really don't need or want to move.

We are quite happy with Gunnarsson. He was out of the line up tonight because Lebda had not played in a while and needed to get into a game. Unfortunately salary does play a role and because Gunnarsson is on his ELC, he got scratched. Ideally, Komi would have been, but that $4.5 million salary pretty much dictates that he has to play.
