Parise - Toews - Hossa .....

I can see the battle on the boards now, opposing teams wont even bother trying to get the puck away from these 3...that would be the best power play scenario as well as it really would help keep the puck in our zone and these guys actually forecheck and cycle.

My bold statement is that if the Hawks acquire Parise, it will improve our power play (though I am still hoping for a Corvo or Souray cheap pointman to help blast some pucks on net), which in turn will help us into the top 3 by itself.

I am serious about this, if the Hawks get Parise and our tending and defense likely stays the same, this team goes from a 6-7th overall team to a top 3 team on our power play ability alone. You put Parise with Toews and I think Parise would believe he died and went to heaven by playing with an elite center for once.

Our power play absolutely destroyed us this year, fix that alone and we are a top 3 team with the same goaltending and defense, imo.
