Does Koivu needs help on the first line?

Koivu might not have the greatest linemates for a so called 1st line, but I don't think you'll see Gainey go out and trade away our prospects to get one either. The price tag for the players wh's names get thrown around would be steep. Iginla's, O'Neill's etc would cost us huge. Look at what it took Philly to acquire Comrie and it's easy to think to acquire the type of player we are looking for we would have to give up something along the lines of Komisarek and a 1st, or Hainey and Perezhogin (don't know if even that would be enough) and I really don't beleive you will see Gainey making such a trade.
Our top line might not be the best in the league, but it has gotten us this far, and like Gainey, I expect them to get us into the playoffs, as is.
