    him, NAK, twarynski are all at that level, imo.
    Nak is a bit more than just a competent 4th liner. He's a legitimate play driving force in the bottom 6 and can play up if he's needed.

    Those 3 sound like a decent 4th line; itís Rafís line until he is officially too old ... what a gem he has been

    thanks, homer.

    he was really good in the bubble; let's see him do it again next year and then we'll talk.

    seriously what a great find. Such a great play driving player.

    Have always wanted to see a full year of raffl-laughton on the 4th line. Throw in nak on the rw and that is one of our best 4th lines in a long time. i remember raffl-laughton played on the 4th line for a little and we called them the honey bees line or something

    Couturier: 20:18 (23% of his total 5v5 time)

    Thompson: 29:46 (45% of his total 5v5 time)

    Raffl-Laughton-Nak could easily be one of if not the best 4th line in the league. They would smoke other 4th lines in terms of possession.

    Ya lets hope we don't **** this up. They would kill. Apparently, Thompson is interested in resigning and we all know AV loves him.

    Well, Fletch did state that he's likely going to look to add a goal scorer via trade. And of all the trades that I've seen suggested, JVR for Kessel isn't as outrageous as we think.

    Also hear that the Wild want more MN born players. Soooo, Nisky and Braun's rights for Dumba? lol

    JVR is a better player than phil kessell at this point, so that trade would be a pure salary dump.

    Peter Laviolette has been named the new coach of the Washington Capitals, the team announced Tuesday.

    Laviolette's deal is believed to be for three years, a source told ESPN.

    how is he a better player though? Both are fatties that love hot dogs. One is faster, has a better shot, and is signed to just 2 years while the other is slower, good as a net front and has 3 years left. Not saying the deal works because ARI wants to clear cap but if we can dump jvr somewhere, kessel ain't a bad option. I think he would easily get 30 for both those years on his contract while JVR can possibly get there

    Kessel had a pretty awful year.

    Also,Lavi has a short shelf life. He might give them a jolt in year 1, but Wsh Is getting to the end of their contender window soon. Too many bloated contracts.
