I agree. If it came down to deciding between resigning Carcillo and signing Konopka, I would take Konopka hands down on faceoff wins alone. If Holmgren can improve a deficiency of this team at a reasonable price while getting a hard-nosed all-out competitor, do it. Konopka with Betts and Nodl would be a great fourth line. I'm not a Carcillo hater, though I dislike the fake head-snaps. As well, as lancer said, Carcillo is a marked man for the refs.
