I'm guessing Arctitccat misunderstood what was meant by "1st line power forward".

I don't think anyone here is saying Pacioretty is going to be an Iginla, but rather a first line complementary power forward, someone like a Drew Stafford, whose a pretty good young power forward in Buffalo...

It's too early to say he'll be a legit 1st line player.

He looks good and is off to a promising start in his career. God knows we've needed a big forward in forever but we've seen this movie before with guys like Higgins and Brian Savage who looked like they could be future 1st liners and never materialized. MaxPac has more physicality than either of them and could actually be a power forward, but it's too soon to say.

BTW, it's too early to know how good PK will be either. Great offensive skills but his D needs a lot of work.

The only way we can land Yapokiov is if we trade both Price and Subban. At that point, is he really worth it?


edit: the window for us to tank closed about 3 years ago.
The window to tank closed 3 years ago, you're right. Gainey should have done it, he should have traded the whole team at the deadline. But as of now we're stucked with contracts.

We're not stuck with anyone other than Gomez... and we don't need to 'tank' to trade away vets for picks and prospects.

Fact is that it's still 10mil invested in two sub-par players.

Judging by the avatar, I'd like to tell you a revelation: we are 40 years ahead of your time. Power-forwards are not like Neely and Howe anymore. Deal with it.
