Mr. "I hate small town Canada" Berard. Not bloody likely. He and Lindros are cut from the same cloth. Don't need an attitude like that anywhere near Edmonton.

Well, yeah, I had this though at first, too, but then if you think about it, most (all?) of our poor defnsive play has started b/c of poor breakouts leading to giveaways leading to mad scrambles. The other way I look at it: is he better than our 6th defencemen? Yes. Will we have to give up a valueable asset? No. Is the salary hit prohibitive? No. Done.

True, but you have to admit a healthy Berard gives us both a QB and a d-man that can move the puck! I'm not saying I would want to do it, but if he was our only choice it isn't a bad choice to be left with. The guys I want are Gonchar and Brewer, both can move the puck well, the former can QB and isn't bad defensivly, the latter was great as part of a shutdown combo with Gator in 04, and I think getting both would totally round out our team....the key is we need St.Louis to stay down where they are and we need the Pens to fall out of the race in the East.
