I love Paul Kariya. He's the reason I switch from being a Kings fan to a Ducks fan. I first saw him play with U of Maine in an exhibition game at the Forum where he scored a hattrick way back when. I was hurt when he left but am totally over it. And yes, a part of me is sad that the Ducks won the Cup without Kariya.

Having said all that, we don't need him. Penner and Kunitz are our top two LW and they've earned it. Combined they'll make less than Kariya alone and score a lot more goals. I feel Kariya could fit in on this team, regardless of how physical he plays. Think about it, Ryan Shannon played 55 games and like 11 playoff games this year. You think Burke would keep Ryan Shannon on this team and not Paul "I got 27 goals to Shannon's 2" Kariya? That's a total non-issue. You play on this team if you can skate and/or play physical. Kariya can skate. Better than most.

But again, we don't need him. Only if Teemu actually stipulates, which I thoroughly doubt, having Kariya on the team do I actually see it happening. Kariya can make more money and get a longer contract elsewhere with teams that can win the Cup (I reccomend Pittsburgh).

maybe keep the same lines kariya could be a good replacement for the shutdown line imagine a big player who shuts downs other big players
With Kariya I'd like:

Kariya - McDonald - Selanne
Kunitz - Getzlaf - Perry
Moen - Pahlsson - R. Niedermayer
Penner - Marchant - Thornton/May

Without Kariya:

Kunitz - McDonald - Selanne
Penner - Getzlaf - Perry
Moen - Pahlsson - R. Niedermayer
Isbister - Marchant - Thornton/May
