I would like to see Lapierre make the team but I think its better to have him as an option in the event Bonk gets hurt. Bonk is a very serviceable player, yes he's over paid but we will not get much more than a 4th/5th round pick for him.......if we move him for such a low return and Lapierre goes down with an injury then we are stuck trying to fill that spot.

Another way to look at this is Bonk, Abbey, Souray, Johnson and Markov are UFA at the end of this year, Gainey will no doubt package a couple of these players at the trade deadline. Abbey + Bonk, Souray + Bonk or Abbey + Souray are much better looking packages than single player deals. We need to be a team looking to improve our team---IN---the playoffs at the deadline rather than a team looking to trade to---MAKE--- the playoffs.
