I'm not that interested in going out in the second round of the playoffs, I'm more interested in winning two years from now, which is what Plekanec will help us do once Bonk leaves, and then he can centre the third line. That's how I see it, anyway.
That's why I suggested Nagy - Kovalev - Perezhogin and Samsonov - Bonk - Johnson. Don't get me wrong; Bonk and Johnson have tremendous defensive skills but they had some great offensive season and a playmaker like Samsonov might be the touch they need to be a good offensive line as well.
