Someone that puts the puck in the net. And not a secondary guy, either. Get Guerin. Right now. If we get a guy like that, it'll make all the other wingers better. Trust me.
I kind of wondered when we got Samsonov after missing out on Shanahan, because I had convinced myself that Shanahan was the kind of player we needed, and Sammy wasn't anything like Shanahan except both were offensive players. We needed a pure goal scorer, and we still do. It's painfully obvious that are current batch can't do the job consistently. We need a trigger man.
I hope Gainey doesn't wait until the deadline to do something.He needs to do something now or really soon with the way this team is playing.The deadline is a little over 3 weeks away and by then the Habs could be on the outside looking in for a playoff spot if this keeps up.I was just looking at the standings on the Leaf board and the Habs are only 4 points out of 9th.Its gonna be a tough road to the playoffs the rest of the way and if the Habs don't soon turn it around we will be in the lottery.What started off so good this year is turning into a nightmare.I wouldn't be surprised to see Ryder,Samsonov,Perezhogin,Niinimaa or maybe some prospects moved between now and the deadline.
