Pavs, Jumbo, Marleau is my order. But I'd see Clowe go way before any of them, he just isn't that valuable.

But Pavs... It's not like he's been actively bad, like Clowe has. Pavs, even when not scoring, is valuable for faceoffs, PKing, standing in front of the net. He's a great defensive player, and isn't prone to bad giveaways. He just hasn't really been good at all this year. Even when the top line was clicking, even when Pavs was getting tons of points, he was just always a step, literally and figuratively, behind Thornton and Marleau.

We would suck so much, Dyson would name their newest model 'The Shark'.
Marleau-Couture-Drouin.
