Gionta just floats around, really? He's overpaid, no longer very physical and might not have a usable shoulder anymore, but the last thing the man is is a floater. He's one of the best two-way forwards on the team and still can will his way in to some garbage goals.

And the disrespect Markov gets around here is something. Markov had some serious defensive flaws last year but Therrien was overplaying him and using him in a stupid-difficult role. If Markov was used as the 2nd pairing even strength guy he now is all season (a lot like that Edler guy so many people here want), he could have been even better. As it was he was one of the most effective PP weapons in the league and did probably as much good as bad in a defensive role he wasn't suited for. The late season Subban-Markov pairing was a possession monster, and while Subban was the driver of that, Markov was a more dominating partner than Gorges.

This board obsesses over cap space, but what good is cap space if all it gets us is the likes of Briere?
