Definitely. He's a great fit for the club's culture.

Really, I don't know that we need more scoring per se. With a little luck with injuries, we've got about 220 goals worth of offense on the team right now. If our defense and goaltending hold, it's not hard to see us returning to the playoffs, especially if the grievance goes our way. (If it doesn't, we're probably screwed.)

What we need is to inject life into our flaccid power play. I think that can be resolved internally. We need someone who can play with Franson and distribute the puck well to create scoring chances for guys like Erat and Fisher. That could be Blum, or it could be Ellis, or it could be a forward playing back on the point. Our power play is what's hurting us the most, and any addition would have to fix that. I'm not convinced that Hemsky or any other forward could do that any better than a change in philosophy on the man advantage (which will hopefully be provided by one Mr. Lambert).
