I would much rather have a team of 3 solid lines than a team of on or 1.5 solid lines.
The Kings seem to be doing alright with those guys, and they don't make Crosby/Malkin/Chara money anyway. I think Carter and Richards at their salaries are better bargains than Simmonds and Voracek at theirs. It's not like all the guys we got back are cheap, and of course the ones that are cheap won't stay that way much longer, whether we win a Cup or not.
