Brooks Laich > Leino, Cole, etc.

Even if Laich wants $4M (and he'll get it) I'd rather have Laich. Character guy, solid two-way player and should be good for 20+ goals and 50+ points. Kills penalties, can play powerplay.

I think that's the team that Holmgren and the staff are trying to build. Young, talented stars (Giroux, JVR, Schenn, maybe Voracek) with complementary character guys who can play in all situations with goal-scoring upside (Versteeg, Simmonds).

If they can't sign Leino, I see a huge push for Laich being made.

JVR - Giroux - Laich
Hartnell - Briere - Voracek
Versteeg - Schenn - Simmonds

Interchangeable top-9...
