Stick JvR, Couturier, or Schenn on that line in a year or two...and it's the best line in hockey.

People around here were furious that we were giving up on our "win now" attitude during the offseason, and now just because we lead the league in scoring...lets not look to acquire any available stars, LOCAL stars nonetheless.

I just can't fathom why anyone would pass up this opportunity. Defense? We could pick up McCabe for nothing, Hannan for a couple mid-round picks, Gleason for some picks/prospects.
It's going to cost us a lot of what little young talent we have because we don't match the assets ANH wants.
We don't have a #2 NHL C to trade...unless we can get briere in this...now if he had been available in may we had two more assets.
