Sure, Joensuu, Arcobello, Acton and Hamilton could all manage to somehow massively improve our bottom six. I could also win the lottery. Expecting non-NHL players (either rookies or KHL/Euro league guys) to step in and be quality is exactly the kind of happy optimism that had people excited about Hartikainen and Petrell.
Again, i disagree....

Perron > Paajarvi
Horcoff = Gordon IMO

It seems that you're implying that the difference between Horcoff and Gordon is greater than the difference between Perron and Paajarvi. I couldn't disagree more but I guess we'll just have to see how it plays out.

Also, i never said that i was happy with the bottom 6 and in particular those 4th line/AHL tweeners, i think it's atrocious beyond Gordon, perhaps Jones and i guess Hemsky if one considers him a legit 3rd liner but it was also atrocious last season too so i don't think it necessarily got worse.
