As much as Laich gets hated on here, I'm looking forward to his return. He's not a team savior anything crazy, but he will help the PK (one of the biggest weaknesses) and will hopefully result in Wolski seeing the press box for a couple of games.

Also, I think, for some, market value for certain players was never adjusted for the post-lockout (first one this century... which sidebar - it's really sad that you have to clarify that) increases in the salary cap. Specifically with regard to Brouwer. He's a 20 goal, 40 point guy who's got an under-appreciated shot and can crash the net. I don't see anything to indicate that 3.6 is ridiculously above market value for that skill-set. I'm sure you can find player's with the same skill-set making less and making more.

EDIT: Just to add onto my first comment, I would play the following top-6:

Laich - Ribs- Ovechkin
Chimera - Backstrom - Brouwer

Let Laich take a lot of the face-offs for that line.
