Gionta is fine. He's solid defensively, chipping in offensively. I was hard on him at the start of the year because the other lines weren't clicking and he wasn't stepping up. But now that we have 3 lines rolling and the Pleks line is back to playing top offensive competition, Gionta just has to play well defensively and chip in offensive. $5M was always too much, but it's not an albatross like Gomez was. I would even consider resigning Gionta, if he continues working hard and playing well on a "checking offensive" line with Pleks for $3M after his contract expires, if we don't have a better option..

The longer we wait, the less return we'll get. What desperate, sucker teams are out there?

Maybe Florida, they signed Kovalev after all.
Yes, let's trade Gionta with Prust, Bourque and Ryder all injured.

Patch - DD - Gally
Galchy - Plek - Eller
Moen - Dumont - Leblanc
Blunden - White - Armstrong

awesome idea.
