I disagree.

We're not going to get an elite 1st liner to carry the team, but that's not really what it takes. We need someone that can click with Kovy. That can be a 80 point player, that can be a 30 point player. We need someone who can get Kovy going on a nightly basis, even if Kovy has to carry im the whole way. Think Todd White. In 2008, he put up 70+ points, yet I wouldn't consider him a 1st line center. We need a player who isn't necessarily a 1st line LW, but we need someone who Kovy can click with.

Obviously that player, this year, is not Todd Wite. I don't know who it is. It'll take some Lou magic to make a deal, but it'll take some luck to make it all work.
