Tough call, IMHO.

On one hand, Palffy and Demitra would be a great pair. On the other hand, I think Kariya would play very well on a line with JR, and can quarterback the PP.

Kariya would be a less expensive signing, which would hopefully give DT more room to get a solid defenseman.


I think that Kariya is due for a rebound year with some quality ice time and some linemates that can open up some room for him (JR and Brown?), and honestly he strikes me more as an Andy Murray type player than Palffy. He's incredibly dedicated to the game and has a lot to prove.

So yeah, I think Ziggy is a premiere talent in the NHL and I would be more than happy to see him back in LA, but he comes with some baggage, as mentioned in this thread, with his attitude towards LA, coming to camp in shape, and playing in AM's system.

I just have a feeling that Kariya might be a better fit for this team, this year.
