Washington Capitals Biggest Need: Overloaded with too many fancy dancers who'd rather avoid contact than drive the net to create a chance, they're desperately in need of a fearless power forward presence. The Solution: Mike Knuble Bill Guerin, re-signed by the Penguins on Monday, might have been a better choice. Nothing wrong with Knuble, though. The Flyers would love to keep the veteran winger but they'll be hamstrung financially by the Chris Pronger trade. At 37, Knuble provides nothing more than a short-term answer to their problems, but his courage, hands (27 goals in 2008-09) and leadership would provide a valuable, and affordable, bridge to the future.
