Bolshoi!! Wolskio spent the season in the OHL and couldn't even make the WJC team while Kosty was at times dominant in the AHL; big diference in the two leagues, and no reason to believe that ANY junior league player is miles ahead of a fellow who just completed his second AHL season, and showed great improvement. IMO Wolski's not better than Kosty right now; he's merely getting the opportunity, just like Steve Bernier.

With Koivu out and Rivbs playing crappily it's blatantly obvious that we need scoring punch.

The team has lost 3 games in a row. Ribeiro has been crap, as has Bonk.
You take out Ribs and Bonk and insert Kosty and Lapierre - there's not a person on the planet that can convince me otherwise - this team need a boost NOW!!!!!!!!! or the season is over.

Higgins Begin Ryder
Kosty Bulis Kovalev
Perez Pleky Zednik
Murray Lapierre Sunny
