Antropov is not that good, he's a good stickhandler but he lacks speed and defensive skills.

Bertuzzi would be an OK fit at best, he scores in streaks and would be just like samuelsson.

Too many penalty minutes when your PK is less then 80%= ask the ducks in the playoffs.

Nope. Antropov and Bertuzzi? Those are the kind of players we shed before winning the cup. Absolutely no need for that crap.

Wouldn't mind McCormick at that price though, or Gauthier, but not at 2M.

Nope. Give me a healthy Rafalski (herniating a disk getting out of your car, talk about a freak injury!) any day over those. If we were going to get rid of Rafalski, I would have re-signed Conks and beefed up the D, not brought back Bertuzzi.

I'd take Gauthier for his thuggish persona on ice, but for $1 million.

EDIT - I want to keep Rafalski.

Is that really how he hurt his back?...Reminds me years ago how Doug Gilmour hurt his back when he leaned over to push an elevator button :blink:

Antropov sucks. I don't know why people keep saying, "Hey how about Antropov?" He wasn't good enough for the Leafs and they have nothing. He wasn't good enough for the Rangers and they have zero offense. He's big, he's slow, he's lazy. And as for Bertuzzi, the Wings are good because they have fast two way players. Bert played here, he was on the 4th line, with two other non-two way players (Hudler and Lang) and was horrible. If the Wings trade Rafalski, they're weakening their strength of their team, the defense.

Yep- citation. The body is a weird thing- incredibly strong most of the time, then something freakish happens. A friend of mine shattered his femur playing whiffleball, of all things.
