where are these guys going to play , we have too many small finesse guys, sorry folks but Gonchar is better than any skilled dman we have now, and at 28 is near his prime. Sourray will be a 3rd d man next year, not a # 2 like is playing now, he is playing way over his head, he is good but not like this. Gonachar will make our PP
way better, plus then if someone wants to pay large for Markov, we could land that pforward we need. It all comes down to using extra assets to get a top player.
If we all assume that # 11, # 20, # 71, Dagenais stay here how the hell are you going to phase in Pleks and Balej into this lineup , they can`t play 3rd and fourth lines. Then a year or 2 later you have a higgins, kasty, and perez, knocking on the door , you have 9 players of which 6 are pure offense players, they can`t all mesh together, this team won`t sense , all skill no guts except higgins. If we are going to screw around with hainsey`s development , I WOULD MUCH RATHER HAVE
A 50-60 POINT STUD ON D THAN WHAT WE HAVE NOW. No one is going to trade you Doan, Bertuzzi , etcc... you might get a Pyatt type project who may never pan out , DMEN are at a premium these days , we have 10-15 mil of the books next year plus another chunk the year after , Gonchar if the price isn`t stupid would be a great fit here, remember IN THE PLAYOFFS A GOAL HERE EXTRA ON
