Yes. Koivu's contract is going to be like Heatley's in a few year. He's never had elite speed and he's never had any elite abilities. If we build around Parise, it would force this team to realize they need a better center than Koivu to work with Parise. I wish we could buy out and then re-sign Koivu to a lot less cap hit but that's not possible.

So next year, we're going to rely on a bunch of second year players to catapult us into the playoffs? Deep into the playoffs?

But that is an argument for another day. Hopefully we continue building on this.
If Cullen stays another year, it's not as a top 6 forward. Late in tonight's game Granlund was again centering the 2nd line, Cullen the 3rd and Brodziak the 4th.
