And save for Dorsett, they're all more than capable offensively. I don't usually enjoy doing"what if" projections, but I like the idea of having
depth and balance through the lineup. Of course, only if the price is right...
One thing that's becoming clear to me, though, is that when I look to next season I just can't come up with a lineup that includes Brad Richards. Not one that I feel good about anyway.
I think the hope has to be that Kreider will be ready for a top-9 role next year. Given a longer leash due to the regular season he has to play every night in the NHL. Just too much talent.
I would go after Bickell though.
Agreed on not wanting Bozak for 5.5 million/season. Stephen Weiss?
