[QUOTE]Getting rid of Kobasew is a huge mistake. Not enough grit on this team as it is. Can't lose ryder either-he's a sniper that we desperately need. Only option is to trade Sturm, which ain't gonna happen. Come up with a better plan, this one $ucks

This plan doesn't stink at all. Ryder needs to stay, like you said, he's a sniper and scores a lot of goals. I don't know why everyone is so high and mighty on Kobasew...yes he has grit, but so does Lucic, Kreijci, Bergeron, Bitz, Thornton, and Begin. You move Kobasew and bring back Kessel. Now your looking at
Lucic - Savard - Kessel (no need to explain but you have speed, scoring, grit)
Sturm - Kreijci - Ryder (speed, scoring, grit)
Recchi - Bergeron - Wheeler (now you turn the 3rd line into much more of a consistent scoring threat by taking out Kobasew and adding Wheeler)
Thornton - Begin - Bitz (theres your gritty and tough 4th line bruisers)
Everyone get off the Kobasew band wagon. He's obviously the one who would be moved b/c let's face it, Sturm is not waiving his NTC.
