Right now I think Kobasew has been playing better than Hejduk and his playing style is a lot better for the 4th line. But the Avs might be forced to play Hejduk because he's the captain. Don't want to run into these problems next season as well.
Don't you think this young avs team needs any experience we can get though? I mean, he's the only remaining stanley cup champ (of the Sakic/Roy era) left. I think we need him as a veteran.
