It's an awful deal and I'm glad Bettman stepped in...BUT what would this team look like if the deal DID go through?

First off...there'd be no Gomez

Vinny,Koivu,Lang at center. Not bad.

Top 6 wingers
Ryder
Kovalev
Kosty
Tanguay

Bottom 6 wingers
Sergei, Guillaume, etc...

AT D there would be no PK or Gorges, but there would be McDonaugh who can soften the blow of losing PK. Gorges as good as he is is replaceable (at least at the time).

Problem is Vinny's contract would hurt us but with him, there's no midget rebuild, there's no Gomez, we get the big 1st line centerman we have needed for years...

My question is...if we did land Vinny, do you think this team would be better off right now?
We'd be in serious trouble if that deal had occured.

Nevermind McDonagh/Gomez, we are losing arguably our three best warriors in that deal.
