We're back at "We need to unload this kid, he's not producing!" instead of kicking around the idea of packaging Dubi to get a REAL offensive threat. This team is done looking for those 2nd-3rd line tweeners right now considering half the team already fits that role, we have to start aiming at higher-end talent. In my mind, the word "threat" is key; a player that is nearly always a threat to either score or be in the mix. This isn't fantasy hockey either, PIMs aren't a desirable trait.
Did you read my post? Trade Dubinsky for a good young prospect and then sign Parise with the money opened up. Parise is the impact forward. Biggs would fit the mold of this team to a 'T', and yes, while PIM's may not always be a desirable trait, I'll take a Lucic/Kassian/Clowe type of player who has perennial 100+PIM seasons over John Mitchell and his 10.

There are different types of penalties......
