3) acquire a veteran playmaker & power play specialist, but don't give up either of our 2008 1st rounders.
4) do NOT select a defenseman, goalie, or a defensive forward with either of our 2008 1st rounders!
5) several 5 - 7 game winning streaks starting NOW! otherwise, we will be buried in our conference.
6) a healthy, rejuvenated Sullivan. He's good for at least 1 hat trick upon his return!
I doubt he ever laces 'em up again, though.
7) multi-year extensions for Weber and Erat without breaking the bank...
I fully expect new ownership to instruct Poile to clean house for the start of next year.
The purse strings will loosen somewhat to sign the building blocks.
Instead of losing FA's 1 or 2 contributers will come in this offseason
and youth has to be served. Year after year of drafting defensive prospects get Zidlicky out and let the kids take over. Its not like this team has been playing exceptional D in their own end anyway
