those guys are all better than Briere defensively though. Briere is a terrific top 6 guy b/c of his offense, but he just does not fit in a 2-way/checking role IMO.

Anyway I'd still really love to see what it would take to get Kopecky. He would add everything we're looking for in the top 9 right now: size, effort, decent skill and skating, left hand shot, defensively sound...

He's signed for 3+ million beyond this year so you'd have to move someone after this season but IMO that's a good problem to have and I think we could easily trade him or someone else to make room.
