Actually, I think Samsonov would thrive in a Samsonov - Marleau - Havlat line. Samsonov always had amazing puck-handling skills, and while he was more of a passer, he's got a pretty good shot when he uses it. But put him on a line with some faster skaters who can take advantage of his speed and puck-handling skills, and it he could really thrive.

But he's had some injury and effort issues, that's for sure. I am more than willing to accept him on a try-out basis in camp. Especially if he's fully healthy.
