    I'm fine with any of the above combinations. Hell, I'm also fine with trading a bottom-6 forward for picks/prospects if we can sign Vecchione or...

    TB? They're deeper at C than we are...if he's looking to play a (at least) middle-six role, it isn't going to happen there any time soon.

    Again, I put no stock in PEB being re-signed; if anything it means that (1) VV is gone and (2) PEB isn't viewed as a long-term piece of the team...

    What's a "full measure", then? It isn't feasible (nor is it advisable) to trade Giroux, Voracek and Simmonds, then start over. Odds are, you...

    I think Vecchione could come in and immediately supplant PEB as 4th line C. I also think he could be effectively deployed as a 3C, with Flip moving...
