rnott might well be an improvement, but would that alone put the Habs on the same plateau as Ottawa and Carolina?
Probably not, but I'm one to believe that center is the most important position in hockey after goalies...
Koivu - Arnott- Plekanec - Bonk
looks a lot better to me than
Koivu- Ribs - Plekanec- Bonk
And he'd be that big body to go in front of the opposition'S goalie that we need so bad on the PP...
Once Latendresse plays for the Habs, we'd have 2 of them... and maybe Chipchura
