Look at Parise, the guy is good but he's not worth 7,5 M per year.
If I were to pick my "favorite" players out of those 6, I'd go with Clarkson, Bickell, Bordeleau and Lapierre. What I'm trying to achieve with these guys is not only bring their physical talents to the team, but also size the team up. Especially the 3rd and 4th line.
That's exactly the same team. Montreal needs more size and be more physique, I know I went overkill, but that's litteraly the same team (only Tinordi is new).
So if I go with only the 4 guys I named:
Pacioretty - Desharnais -
Bourque - Plekanec - Gallagher/Eller
- Galchenyuk - Prust
Extras: Blunden / Who ever
So you want one of Gallagher/Eller off the starting lineup?
Maybe we have different views, but in my book both are locks if they continue this way.
