Ryan Malone isn't good enough for you? Malone does things Kraft was far too scared to try...like work the corners and drive hard to net, many times giving up his body to get there. We no longer need Kraft on this roster. Your middle next season will be Crosby, Malkin, Malone and Talbot. That's a sweet middle you got there!
I would say that if you added Kraft and Morozov back into the mix as wingers, they would be ahead of everyone except perhaps Armstrong, LeClair and possibly Hilbert.
I'm not saying that they need to go that way, but if the new GM looks at all of the assets at his fingertips to build for next season - I would assume that he would see these two as having some role to play in that process. Trade their rights if nothing else.
These were a few of the moves that CP made that just didn't add up to me. If they aren't in our plans, fine, but couldn't guys who have shown some ability to score in the NHL be worth at least a draft pick? His approach was akin to burning a $100 bill when you need all the cash you can get.
