I wouldn't say we need scoring in the sense of adding PlayerX to the line-up. I think our scoring would increase dramatically if we added the two key players we all know we need to the blueline, thereby taking some defensive pressure off of our forwards. I'd rather have our current line-up of forwards, minus one or two, and add an Orpik/Lilles/JBo/Pit/etc. to the d-corp, which is my hunch for the direction we go in.
So, drop Malik, Mara, and Rosie, waive/trade Backman, and add a PP QB and a heavy hitter, and I say with confidence, our scoring will more resemble '06-'07 than '07-'08. Btw, we don't necessarily need the BEST PP QB or hitter, just players that are a noticeable upgrade.
