What ever would this team do w/ lines of:
Hartnell-Giroux-Jagr,
JVR-Briere-Simmonds
Talbot-Couturier-Read
Nodl-Holmstrom-Wellwood
Rinaldo

And how would we get by w/ defensive pairings of:
Pronger-Weber
Timonen-Coburn
Meszaros-Gustafsson

We would be terrible. Just like Nashville. There's absolutely no depth there. It's not like we have 5 or 6 players there that are likely to put up 60+ points... we would be just as bad as Nashville... a team that's leading scorer had 50 points last year.

Very good comparison there.
No, no you're right. I have been dying to see a line with Nodl, Homstrom and Wellwood on it. If you're really depending on Couturier and Read to keep up their point production and have that 4th line then... I don't know. Maybe we just think differently because I wouldn't be comfortable with that at all. Shea Weber is a tremendous player and I applaud your effort to try and get him, but let's face it. This offense isn't at all a given to be a consistent high scoring affair every game.

Flame me all you want, I'm just giving my two cents.
