Think he led Portland in scoring last year and has always been good on the PP. I have no idea how the rest of his game is coming along. He needed work especially on faceoffs.
Chipchura is a great utility player and my ideal 13th forward. I was only suggesting Gomez and Horcoff as UFA, post amnesty buy out, on a one year deal somewhere in the neighborhood of 2.5m (they already be getting paid a ton from the buy out).

I've just got this problem, see. This mental block. I look at us as contenders and then I look at Torres, Gordon, and Moss and I don't see a third line, but rather a fourth line. I don't see Bissonnette, Chipchura, and Johnson and see a fourth line, but rather a healthy scratch, a reserve player, and an injury call up from the minors. I know it is completely delusional and we don't actual have any forward depth. Then when I actually see those forwards for what they are and where they fall on the depth chart, I can no longer see us as contenders. Not at all.

Ideally, I'd love to see a playmaking Whitney stand in with Vrbata and Hanzal. Personally, I think Gomez would be a great fit on that left wing (assuming amnesty buy out). Maybe one year, two point five million.

I'd like to see Sullivan dropped down a line and given a great playmaker of his own. I think Connolly would be a great fit if he can be had for peanuts. Maybe Goncharov and a 4th just so we can laugh at Toronto fans for gloating about how well burke did. Haha.

Boedker-Vermette-Doan
Gomez-Hanzal-Vrbata
Sullivan-Connolly-Korpikoski
Torres-Gordon-Moss
Chipchura

Is something I'd like to see but i know I'm pretty much completely alone on that.
