That's the point: Who in our lineup is at an advantage during a scrum? I like Gionta and continue to defend his value, but SOMEONE has to be moved in order for a BIGGER SOMEONE to create that scrum advantage that's desperately needed.
Realistically, I expect another year from Gionta, as the Habs begin to add a little size. Defense is the priority. I expect Bergevin to get another established defenseman for the new season, along with the possibility of Beaulieu or Pateryn joining Tinordi.
After next season is when I expect the final pieces to be assembled, and that means making room for a couple of power wingers and dealing guys like Gionta.
