Surprisingly, I don't hate it. Looks like we traded Demers, Clowe, and Pavelski + for Nash, and dropped Handzus off at a bus stop somewhere. I hate, hate the thought of losing Pavelski, but the lineup isn't bad

If reports are true that Howson is demanding Couture, we might be able to cross out Nash. In that case, if we do sign Doan, we have a top 7. Which begs the question- where do we put them? Specifically, Pavs. Do we switch him over to the left side of Thornton and put Doan or Havlat on his right, dropping Marleau down to center another line? Drop Pavs down to center? Does it make us more likely to trade Clowe? And for who/what? Just the addition of one top 6 winger gives us unlimited options to change our lineup. Whether we can get one through FA is the question. (answer: not likely, but possible)
