Wolski's too inconsistent in my opinion to put up better results than Hagelin. Where Hagelin doesn't have the scoring skill necessary, Wolski doesn't have the will and drive. That will only get him benched by our coach, leaving Richards with again another stop gap at that side of the wing.

What will get our 50 mill dollar center going is, for example, Bobby Ryan. Ryan fits the identity of the team while also providing the scoring skill needed for our center.

Hopefully if both Staal and Sauer come back healthy we can package Dubi and a defender (probably a prospect/draft pick as well) for Ryan and make 2 extremely dangerous lines.

Shift Hagelin down with Boyle and Mitchell, that line worked hte last time it was together. 4th line stays the same.
So Richards hits a slump for a few games and all of the sudden we need to gut the team to get Bobby Ryan to get him going?

Let me guess you also think we could get him for Dubinsky and a 3rd or something?

Wrong. For a "bonafide sniper" from a team that has a atrocious defense such as Anaheims your going to look at something along the lines of McDonagh, Dubinsky, 1st.
