That has the potential for being a deadly trio. 2 shooters, 1 playmaker and 3 defensively responsible players.
If Raymond's salary needs to be moved out to accomodate them, so be it.
I would love that, but out top-6 would be soft as butter. AS the bruins showed...you target Henrik and Kesler, there is no pushback from anyone else, and you shut this team down. I would love to get a PWF for Kesler to open up more room for his shot and who can crash the net for a screen/rebound.
On the other wing, Gagne or Tanguay would be perfect.
