If you think about it really. Right now, we are a playoff team(Excluding the injuries). If we pick up a scoring winger to play on that top line and IMO a veteran(Gary Roberts type) who can help our young team get over their playoff jeters(From never playing there) we can really make an impact in the playoffs next year.
Best GM in the league?????? Shouldn't we make it through a couple of playoff rounds, or at least make it to the FIRST round before he gets that title? When he gives away Ollie, which he will do because it is clear he wants him out, for a couple of maybees and has beens then lets revisit. He has a lot to do this offseason.

Major areas:

Frolik must be signed, losing his rights would be incredibly emabarrasing and another examplae to the league of our mediocrity as an organization.

Bouw must be signed long term this offsseason or traded for at least a first line scoring forward and an adequate replacement defenseman

If Ollie is traded, which he shouldn't be, he better get good value in players ready to contribute now to make up the 35 goals a year he puts up every single year with third-fourth line caliber line mates.

Upgrades are needed up front.

Depending on how he comes out of these four we will either be contenders or losers again.
