Brian Campbell made of point saying he hopes to be around after Tuesday's trade deadline, so I asked him if the Sabres should add a player to bolster the roster. He said they just need their injured players back. That means Drew Stafford, Maxim Afinogenov and Jochen Hecht.
"If you go down and look at what you can do with four lines when you get everybody healthy, I think this team is equipped to make a stab at it," Campbell said.
Do you agree? Here's what the lines might look like with everyone healthy and no one gone.
Thomas Vanek-Derek Roy-Ales Kotalik
Tim Connolly-Jochen Hecht-Jason Pominville
Daniel Paille-Paul Gaustad-Drew Stafford
Patrick Kaleta or Clarke MacArthur-Adam Mair-Maxim Afinogenov
Is that a lineup that can succeed? And of course, you can change the lines. I did about five times as I was writing them.
