Mike Brown has a great beard, and he tries hard, but to be honest, he doesn't do much for me.
Why does he need to replace him? We don't exactly have a logjam of competent NHL caliber 4th liners.

I think your in pretty good shape if you can have the speed, physicality, tenacity and offensive flare of Komarov and Brown on your 4th line, behind 3 scoring lines.

Assuming the season is cancelled and we're planning for the 13/14 season (). For discussions sake lets say Burke and Carlyle entice Getzlaf to join them in Toronto. Let's also say Toronto lands a top 5 pick and decides to further bolster their blueline by drafting the big and bad Seth Jones to compliment offensive dynamo Morgan Rielly. Just because I'm in a good mood let's assume we trade Cody Franson, Jesse Blacker and a pick for Roberto Luongo and his albatross contract.

We let the following go in FA: Lombardi, Connolly, Steckel
We resign: Lupul, Bozak and our RFA's
We waive/amnesty buyout: Komisarek

Now tell me this line-up isn't near-drool worthy.

Lupul-Getzlaf-Kessel
JVR-Grabovski-Kulemin
Kadri-Bozak-Frattin
Brown-McClement-Komarov

Gardiner-Phaneuf
Jones-Rielly
Gunnarsson-Liles
Holzer

Luongo
Reimer
