As I mentioned: we are 1st in the East and Bourque – Plekanec – Gionta sure played a major role.
Yes we can find a better solution than Gionta on 1st but speaking of buyout is borderline ridiculous... imo!
Maybe I didn't phrase that properly...I don't find there's alot of chemistry between 17-14-21. There were a few games off the top of my head, the Sabres game, where they looked pretty good. But overall, it's been so-so
As for buying out Gionta...I don't agree with that, he's still a useful player. But the coaching staff seems to think that he's useful in all situations.
I'd like to see them take away some of his PP time to allow more creative players like Gallagher or Galchenyuk more icetime in key offensive situations.
