He was brutal in the playoffs and we won despite him. His shot blocking isn't even THAT noticeable. I mean you can see it obviously, but it's not winning us games by any means. Get in better position and have a better stick so you don't have to block it with your face! I'd dump him and his contract in a heartbeat if we could package him with someone for a top 6 winger. Slot in the better player(Larsson) and the top 6 winger and we have a better team, clearly. Do it Lou, if you can.
Volchenkov was HUGE for the PK last year. Him and Sal normally start the PK and that is a huge reason why our PK was record setting last year.

Thats 1 key to losing Volchenkov that could be an issue. If he is hidden on a 3rd pairing (which he currently is) he is fine.
