well, don't just , tell me what you dislike about it.

Bulis and Higgins are big enough and hard working enough to compensate for ribs flaws no?
anyway, I feel it would be better than Perez-Ribs-Ryder. might not be the best solution... but...

Anyway, my best solution is to trade ribs. but I don't want to get into that.

As hinted to earlier in this post, I would rather save money not signing kovalev seeing as we have many young forwards coming up and sign a good, pseudo-young defenseman (Aucoin would be ideal):

Zednik-Koivu-Perezhogin
Higgins-Ribeiro-Ryder
Bulis-Bonk-Sundstrom
Hossa-Plekanec-Begin
Ward, Dagenais

Markov-Rivet
Souray-Komisarek
Aucoin-Brisebois
Bouillon/Hainsey

Theodore
Huet

Danis should be in hamilton at least one more year, why rush when we have a guy like Huet anyway?

Rookie forwards might be moved around when their NHL roles can be more properly defined.

I'm also not sure if Aucoin is LD or RD, so that might change things. Overall, Kovalev would be good, but with SO many young forwards coming up (didn't even mention Kostitsyn and Chipcura in 2-3 years), we should focus on our more shakey defense, IMO.

What you bring to the table is very interesting...

however, even if I don't buy it when people bash smallish players, I believe that you must have at least, at the very least, one big guy per line, in order to make some room for the other two. on your two first lines, I see players who can win battles, but I don't see guys who can create much space... what can they do against a big mobile D? not much IMO.
That's why we got Kov on the 1st and I'm not ready to say bye untill we replace him with another big winger. (e.g. in his first games, although he didn't get points on the play, he went behind the net and check a guy who lost puck possession and Koivu easily grabed the lose puck to make a perfect pass)
And that is also why our Second line was not very efficient during the playoffs, they didn't had a stronger guy to make them some room... actually that line looked better when Begin or Ward was on it...

I don't think that Perez-Ryder are particularly more or less physical than Bulis-Higgins. Bulis has some size, but he's a total creampuff. If anything, I think Ryder is the most physically intimidating player of the bunch.

ok, understand better now... I'd have to take a look more closely to see if I agree though.
